Kongsberg Automotive says it has been awarded a seven-year agreement with an unnamed European automaker for the supply of seat comfort systems to a mid-size/large luxury SUV.
The contract is worth an estimated EUR15.8m (US$17.5m) during its lifetime and production is scheduled to start in the third quarter of 2016 from KA’s facility in Pruszkow, Poland.
KA will supply comfort systems including lumbar support for the front seats and seat heat systems for all three seat rows.
“Providing seat comfort solutions to the premium seat and car makers in a growing segment of the automotive industry is exactly what we want to achieve and this is a great win for us,” said Kongsberg Automotive interior business area VP sales & marketing, Hans Jorgen Morland.
“Our seat comfort technology and experience, coupled with our strong market orientation and global footprint provide a solid value proposition to customers.”
