Jernbro (previously called Coor Industrial Services) continues its expansion in Asia and has signed two large agreements with two of the biggest automakers in the Chinese automotive market. The total value of the order is just over 50 MSEK.
Jernbro once again proves its competitiveness and continues its expansion in China.
One of the larger automakers in China chose Jernbro, who won the deal in competition with several global players. The order is for the delivery of test benches for testing engines. The large automaker has ordered nine test benches to test engines (End of Line). The test benches allow the customer to secure the quality of their testing process and therefore take a big step forward technically.
“For many years we have been entrusted to deliver engine testing equipment to several large companies in the automotive business round the world. Our co-workers have high expertise and experience of designing and delivering this type of equipment. I am happy we won this order and look forward to cooperating with our new customer,” says Patrik Sahlberg, Sales Manager Automation at Jernbro.
Deliveries are to two of the customer’s factories and installation starts in China in February 2017.
Another of China’s largest automakers has signed an agreement with Jernbro, which will mean development and manufacturing of assembly equipment in one of the customer’s engine factories in China.
The agreement is for an assembly system for engines including 62 AGVs (Automated Guided Vehicles/self-navigating assembly trolleys). The customer is China’s largest automaker with nearly six million cars produced each year in many different factories. Delivery of the production equipment will take place at the end of 2017.
“We are pleased to once again be supplying AGVs to China. With our automation equipment, the customer increases productivity and gets a more ergonomic, safe and efficient production plant,” says Pär Knutsson, Product Manager AGV at Jernbro.
In China, Jernbro cooperates with Anwha Automotive, and together they deliver a complete assembly system for engines to the Chinese customer.
