(Nasdaq: NNBR) today announced the resignation of Thomas Zupan, Vice President of Business Development of Whirlaway Corporation effective April 1, 2012, to pursue other personal interests.

The strategic guidance and support that Whirlaway has received since becoming a part of NN has positioned the business for a future of excellent growth and profitability. I wish everyone at Whirlaway and NN continued success."
