Hutchinson has created a new joint venture with Hiroshima Kasei, located in Fukuyama, Japan.

The joint venture, named HHSJ (Hiroshima Kasei Hutchinson Sealing Japan) will reinforce Hutchinson ‘s presence in Japan.

The JV will focus on sales activity, development and production management for body sealing products developed for Japanese automotive manufacturers.

The joint venture will support ongoing projects for the Japanese manufacturers by combining both companies’ technology, experience in material, product design and production know how. This joint venture will allow both companies to enlarge their activities in Japan.

Earlier this year, Hutchinson said it would take a major participation in Thermal Control Systems Automotive, specialised in technologies for thermal management and battery cooling.

Based in Laval, France and employing around 60 people, Thermal Control Systems Automotive will allow Hutchinson to propose a global system offer for fluid management and to reinforce its position in CO2 reduction solutions.

The acquisition is subject to clearance from relevant authorities in France.
