Constellium is providing front Crash Management Systems and other aluminium structural components to the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class from its plants in Gottmadingen, Germany and San Luis Potosí, Mexico.

Constellium is supplying two derivative vehicles of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class global platform.

The supplier maintains Aluminium Crash Management Systems improve vehicle safety in the event of a collision, protecting occupants and the vehicle, due to what it says is its “superior energy absorption and crash behaviour.”

“We are proud to supply the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class with our structural solutions,” said Constellium’s Automotive Structures business general manager, Lionel Chapis.

“This confirms the strong relationship we have built over the years with Mercedes-Benz, and we are glad to support them globally thanks to our expanding footprint.”

Constellium’s Gottmadingen plant produces customised aluminium automotive structures and Crash Management Systems for automotive customers and features development and prototyping capabilities.

The San Luis Potosí plant opened in spring, 2018 to serve automakers in Mexico. Constellium is a long-term supplier of Mercedes-Benz for both rolled products and structural components.
