Kongsberg Automotive has been awarded a contract with an estimated value of EUR 34 million (NOK 314 million) over 5 years for the supply of chassis products to a major European truck manufacturer.

The specific product connects the vehicle cabin with the vehicle frame. This is part of our Vehicle Dynamics segment, which is an important growth area within the business area Driver Control Systems. Production under the contract will commence in 2016.
