Wayne Pignone Showcases New “Clean Fuels” Products And Other Innovations At Automechanika

Newly formed operation combines state-of-the-art technology and solutions from Wayne and former Nuovo Pignone distribution businesses in Europe.

FLORENCE, Italy, Sep 9, 2004 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Wayne Pignone, a unit of Dresser Wayne, Dresser, Inc., today announced that it intends to showcase many innovative new products at this year's Automechanika trade show in Frankfurt, Germany, September 13 through 19. Wayne Pignone is the newly combined force of Wayne Europe and Nuovo Pignone's (NP) dispenser and distribution businesses, following the acquisition of those NP businesses by Dresser Inc. in June 2004. Visitors to Wayne Pignone's booths A71 and B67 will find details about the new business structure and organization, important new dispenser and point of sale products and exciting innovations on familiar models.

New products being introduced to accommodate the fast-growing alternative 'clean fuels' market are the Global Star(TM) Ethanol blender and AdBlue dispensers, and the all-in-one DPXF C-style dispenser, engineered to deliver compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), diesel and gasoline. Also on display will be the Wayne(R) Global Star(TM) and Global Century(TM) and the Pignone DPX 'H-style' as well as custom models designed and built for leading customers. Wayne Pignone will also show the Ovation(R) dispenser with the latest iDPOS(TM) (In-Dispenser Point-of- Sale) technology, designed to maximize station uptime. Wayne Pignone continues to invest in technology designed to lower the total cost of ownership of its equipment for service station operators as well as introducing leading-edge solutions for the growing 'clean-fuels' market in Europe.

On the retail automation front, Wayne Pignone will show the Nucleus9(TM) and EuroSINP point-of- sale systems in Europe. These advanced systems feature pump control, touch screen, point of sale, back office system, and card automation. In addition, the company will show the new PT 4000 payment system, the updated version of the PT 3000.

"This is an especially exciting Automechanika show for us this year," said Luciano Dell'Omo, President of Wayne Pignone in Europe. "It is the first opportunity for us to show off the benefits of the combined Wayne Pignone family of products and services."
