Mercedes-Benz AG is acquiring a minority stake in btv technologies GmbH, a service partner for electronic components in the automotive and consumer goods industries, thereby increasing the security of supply of semiconductors.
Mercedes-Benz has been working with btv technologies since 2021 and is now deepening its collaboration with the logistics partner, which it says has set new standards in terms of transparency, agility and cost efficiency with its “tak model” in supply chain management in the context of the global semiconductor shortage.
Both semiconductor manufacturers and the international automotive industry rely on the services of btv technologies. The company specializes in logistics, programming, quality management, assembly, testing, taping and long-term storage of electronic components.
Maximilian Krane, CEO of btv technologies, adds: “This partnership is a clear sign of confidence in our technology and our team. Together with Mercedes-Benz AG, we want to further develop our innovative solutions and increase security of supply in the automotive industry.”
