Review of performance.

Other businesses

GKN’s other businesses comprise Cylinder Liners, which is mainly a 59% owned venture in China, manufacturing engine liners for the truck market in the US, Europe and China and a 50% share in Emitec, which manufactures metallic substrates for catalytic converters in Germany, the US, China and India.

Sales in the year were £106 million (2010: £87 million). Trading profit was £3 million (2010: £3 million) reflecting an improvement in the underlying business offset by the heavy investment by NoNOx, a division of Emitec, into selective catalytic reduction systems, particularly for the truck market.
