Press Release: AVL and Comau sign a strategic partnership to deliver advanced solutions for the electric vehicles market
Emerging needs from the electrification market require experienced, full-turnkey, affordable suppliers able to provide powerful assembly and test solutions for electric and hybrid vehicle manufacturing. To answer these challenges, AVL List GmbH, global leader of engineering, simulation and testing technology for powertrain systems, and Comau SpA, a leading company in the industrial automation products and systems, have joined forces to offer innovative, modular and flexible solutions. As of January 1, 2018, AVL and Comau have an open cooperation in simulation, design, assembly and testing of powertrain components for electric as well as traditional vehicles.
The agreement will ensure customers have access to robust, standard solutions on a global scale, backed by a local presence, resulting in higher quality and a shorter time to market. The initial focus of the partnership will be on assembly systems and end-of-line testing for automotive batteries.
