Business take over of Hamon Rothemühle Cottrell GmbH i. I., Wenden/Sauerland

Dear Sir/Madam,

On 11 August 2003 Balcke-Dürr GmbH came to an arrangement with the insolvency administrator of Hamon

Rothemühle Cottrell GmbH i. I., Wenden, on our firm taking over the business of this currently insolvent

company and merging it with our service division.

Following the re-integration of our previous service activities into Balcke-Dürr GmbH in December of last

year, the above represents a further step in completing our spectrum of products and services to ensure that

your power plants resp. Production plants run properly and economically. As you know, the successful

business activities over many years of Rothemühle have included the following product lines:

• Regenerative and recuperative heat exchangers, types ROTHEMÜHLE ® and Ljungstrom

• Dust precipitators/filters.

Just as in the past what we have on offer here extends to supplying all-in components including construction

and startup as well as maintenance/upkeep and to supplying spare parts. The fact that we have taken over

more than 160 staff in Wenden means that none of the engineering, handling, production, erection and

service expertise is lost to your company.

The Balcke-Dürr name stands for that particular experience and knowledge in air heating, boiler

conversion/service, water/steam circulation including cooling and flue gas cleaning being available for the

operation of your system - and in a quality and dependability that you have come to appreciate.

Letter of October 10, 2003


Balcke-Dürr GmbH became a 100% subsidiary of the U.S. industrial group SPX Corporation on 1 August

2002. SPX is a rapidly growing, internationally operating group active in a host of industrial fields. Last year

its roughly 24,000 employees generated revenues of over 5 billion US$ (4.1 billion in 2001) and the company

has attained the investment grade with the rating agencies of Standard & Poor's and Moodys. For more

information on SPX please visit www.spx.com.

We will soon let you know whether Balcke-Dürr GmbH will continue with any non-completed contracts

between yourselves and Hamon Rothemühle Cottrell GmbH i.I. on products and services that we have taken

over. In instances where these orders have been annulled by the insolvency administrator, we are more than

prepared to negotiate with you on their completion.

In future we would ask you to make allowance for the above corporate changes in all your letters, inquiries,

bid invitations, proposals, orders, bills and payments. The address of our Rothemühle branch is as follows:

Balcke-Dürr GmbH
