The first contract is for supply of head restraints and arm rests to a popular crossover SUV for the North American market. Start of production will be in Q4 2013 from KA’s facilities in Reynosa, Mexico and Milan, USA. The contract will run for 4 years.
“This is an important nomination that confirms our position as one of the preferred suppliers of these products to the top American car brands”, says Director of Global Sales & Marketing, Hans Jørgen Mørland.
Additionally, KA has been nominated to supply hood release cables to a premium European vehicle manufacturer for a range of passenger cars and SUVs. The cables will be produced in KA’s Siofok plant in Hungary with first deliveries scheduled for the end of 2014.
