Leoni says it will supply wiring harnesses for future Volvo Cars models – the first time the component producer has secured an order from the Swedish automaker.

"We are happy Volvo Car relies on our global footprint and high quality service", said Leoni management board member, Frank Hiller.

"The first order comprises the production of several harnesses [such as] underbody, tunnel, doors, roof and bumpers."

The wiring systems producer adds it will support Volvo Cars' growth worldwide with research and development capacities, as well as seven production facilities for wiring systems in the Americas and Asia.

In 2014, Leoni added Volvo Cars' Chinese parent company, Geely, as a new customer.
