Preh Group CEO Zhengxin "Charlie" Cai said, "I am always very proud when our company is recognized for its innovative power. This is because the Preh Group has a history of innovation, started by founder Jakob Preh more than 100 years ago. I would like to thank all colleagues who have worked tirelessly on the creation of an outstanding solution for Ford: The rotary multi-function knob on a touchscreen. And my thanks go to our customer Ford. It was the excellent cooperation between Ford and Preh, which finally brought this new control interface successfully into series production in the Mustang Mach-E. For Preh, this award win marks a new milestone in our track record of creating world-class HMI solutions, demonstrating what we can achieve by living the essence of our claim 'PASSION FOR EXCELLENCE'."
