Continuing just-auto's series of interviews with global component manufacturers, Matthew Beecham spoke to Karl-Friedrich Stracke, President Fahrzeugtechnik & Engineering of Magna Steyr about its MILA Blue concept, lightweight technologies and tomorrow's powertrain.
Jake Hirsch has worked in the automotive supply industry for 30 years, including as president and CEO of Teksid Aluminium, CEO of Textron Fastening Systems; managing director of TRW Occupant Restraints and COO at Magna Europe where he was also a member of the Board of Directors. He talked to Simon Warburton in Detroit about some of the challenges and opportunities in the business.
As usual under the quaint agreements that still apply, the car was out long before the supplier news. Nonetheless, it's worth noting Magna Exteriors' announcement of production of the North American automotive industry's first all-thermoplastic, fully recyclable liftgate module for the 2014 Nissan Rogue crossover utility vehicle built in Smyrna, Tennesee and, eventually, Korea as well.
Magna says its exteriors operating unit has secured unspecified new business to supply painted automotive body panels made from carbon fibre composite material for two 2016 model-year vehicles.
Magna has posted 2013 net income of US$458m with sales of US$34.84bn - an increase of 13% compared to the same period ended December, 2012.
Magna International and Italian intellectual property company, bi-on, have signed a cooperation agreement to start R&D activities on the use of bio plastics for the automotive industry.
Magna International Inc., through its Magna Exteriors operating unit, and Chongquing Guangneng Rongneng Trim Co., Ltd., have announced the formation of a 50/50 joint-venture partnership for the assembly of front-end modules (FEMs).
Huge sheets of ice are progressing in a stately manner down the Detroit River outside the Cobo and with forecast of snow this afternoon, it will feel more like Michigan in January than yesterday's almost balmy temperatures.
