0

FEV has formalized its latest business expansion in Asia with the inauguration of FEV Thailand. The new location – in Sriracha, Chon Buri, southeast of Bangkok – is part of the company’s continuing growth in Asia, aimed at supporting the regional mobility sector in the development of vehicles and engines, transmissions and electric powertrains, including batteries and fuel cells.

“Thailand’s automotive sector is growing fast and needs technology for future mobility,” says Stefan Pischinger, president and CEO of FEV Group. “Clean air, sustainable energy supply and highly efficient drive systems are needed worldwide, and FEV helps to develop technical solutions for the future targets.”

“Megacities, like Bangkok, can improve air quality and safety significantly by implementing solutions from FEV for conventional vehicles and e-vehicles, including two- and three-wheelers. To be efficient in product development, it is important to be close to the customer and to use the global FEV knowledge efficiently,” adds Ernst Scheid, CEO of FEV Asia.

FEV has already conducted projects in the region, including improving conventional powertrains for Southeast Asia, delivering test equipment for product development and end-of-line quality control, and providing hardware and software for the Thai Industry 4.0.
