Hardinge Inc. (NASDAQ:HDNG), a leading international provider of advanced metal-cutting solutions, announced that its Board of Directors, at their February 14, 2012 meeting, appointed Robert J.

Both members will be standing for election at the Company’s 2011 annual meeting in May, with Mr. Lepofsky as a Class I Director and Mr. Tripeny a Class II Director.

“Bob and Tony bring high caliber experience as well as deep knowledge across multiple disciplines to our Board, and we believe they can provide significant contributions to the shared vision for Hardinge’s growth and market expansion,” noted Richard Simons, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Their combined operational and financial experience as well as their global exposure with large public companies should prove valuable to our strategy to continue to expand our global presence by capitalizing on the increasing world-wide need for high quality, reliable precision machine tools and to further our market penetration throughout all industries in both mature and emerging economies.”

Mr. Lepofsky, retired Chief Executive Officer of Brooks Automation, Inc. (NASDAQ: BRKS), a global leader in factory automation, vacuum and instrumentation solutions for the semiconductor and allied industries, has over 35 years of experience in various leadership roles and has operated in a variety of global environments spending the majority in operations and strategic roles.
