Denso will open in Germany its first engineering center for diesel engine components outside Japan.
The E13 million center in Wegberg, near Düsseldorf, will conduct application-design work for diesel engine fuel-injection systems. In the future, the facility will engineer powertrain components. The Japanese supplier says the center, which opens in April, will allow it to take advantage of the growth in diesel-car sales in Europe.
“This facility can help us meet that demand through application designs as well as performance evaluations. In the future, the facility will engineer powertrain components,” said Hiromi Tokuda, the executive in charge of Denso’s powertrain control system group.
