Balanced Performance

Looking at our performance for the year, Tenneco’s global revenues increased 21% to $7.2 billion, a record high for the company. Revenues for the year were balanced across global markets, with 47% in North America; 42% in Europe, South America and India; and 11% in Asia Pacific. Both our global original equipment and aftermarket businesses contributed to our strong top-line performance with double-digit revenue increases in each.

There were three primary drivers of our revenue growth in 2011: first, our strong presence on leading vehicle platforms combined with an improved production environment for our OE customers; second, our continued expansion into the commercial vehicle market; and third, the strong performance of our global aftermarket business.
