We believe that it’s imperative to follow design thinking principles in the automotive sector to drive customer-centric, technologically feasible, and financially viable innovations. Thus, we usually begin our projects at the concept design phase and develop the product in close collaboration with our customers.
Depending on the customer’s location, we have an extensive network of internal and external resources to manage this challenging engineering task. We have permanent teams located in China, France, Korea, Thailand, Romania, and Turkiye. Furthermore, thanks to our talented, agile, and flexible teams, we can provide resident engineering services wherever the project is, as in previous cases in Germany, Italy, UK, and the US. Finally, we can draw on our vast network of technology partners for additional support when needed.
Besides the project-specific developments, we collaborate heavily with our OEM customers and technology partners during the research stage. We have several joint R&D programs with our customers to research and develop more effective, competitive, and environmentally friendly solutions. Hot topics related to these programs include circular economy, lightweight materials, composite bonding solutions, and biomaterials.
