• Innovations from SEG Automotive enable effective CO2 reductions and fuel economy improvements for automobiles and Heavy Duty alike
• PACCAR has renewed its long-term agreement with SEG Automotive for the supply of heavy duty alternators
[Novi], March 2018 – PACCAR, the Heavy Duty industry leader with its DAF, Kenworth and Peterbilt brands, has renewed its long-term contract with SEG Automotive North America.
SEG Automotive has emerged from the former well-established "starter motors and generators" division of the Bosch Group. The new name is testimony to over a century of history in the development and production of starter motors and alternators as well as a future-oriented focus on e-mobility. The company will continue its success story under a new owner, under the leadership of Zhengzhou Coal Mining Machinery Group Co and an investment group.
SEG Automotive NA is an essential part of the global growth and manufacturing strategy of the new company and operates two locations: in Novi, Michigan and the brand new state of the art facility in Lerma, Mexico. Accordingly, the workforce, as well as the business in North America, have been expanded significantly over recent years.
Sam Messina, business unit leader of SEG Automotive NA for the commercial vehicle business says "I am very pleased that PACCAR has decided to continue the business partnership with us. Our name is new, but SEG Automotive has over 100 years of experience and is committed to continuity, especially in terms of technology, our regional strategy, and our employees. SEG's many years of experience, outstanding competence and commitment to the success of our customers are the foundation of our company. The renewal of our long-term contract with PACCAR is the best reward of our efforts."
SEG Automotive will be exhibiting at the Mid America Trucking show on March 22-24 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville Kentucky.
CO2 reduction for all drive technologies
The new company is committed to further expanding its contribution to the reduction of CO2 emissions which supports OEMs in achieving the ever more stringent CO2 goals.
With its Boost Recuperation Machine (BRM), SEG Automotive already offers technology for hybridizing gasoline and diesel engines in a highly cost-effective manner. Through the use of the BRM, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions can be reduced by about 15 percent. Advanced start/stop technologies and high-efficiency alternators from the SEG Automotive portfolio also provide significant CO2 savings to our OEM customers.
