Modine Manufacturing is a thermal management company established in 1916 in the United States.[1][2] The company started as Modine Manufacturing Company by Arthur B Modine who patented the Spirex radiator for tractors. The company built the "world's first" vehicular wind tunnel in Racine, Wisconsin in 1941. The company expanded with a European operation, Modine Schnappling Europe, in 1990 and in 1993 acquired Längerer & Reich, a German heat transfer company founded in 1913. [3]
