Schefenacker plc, one of the worlds largest producers of automotive mirrors, is changing its name.
As of Dec. 11, the company will be called Visiocorp plc.
With this name change, we are broadcasting our clear vision to be recognized as a successful global automotive supplier, Schefenacker CEO Ulrich Bruhnke said in a press release issued Monday.
Financially troubled for several years, Schefenacker recently completed a restructuring that included relocating its headquarters from Germany to Portchester, England, and selling off its lighting division.
As of September 2007, Schefenacker employed approximately 5,100 people at 21 manufacturing locations in 13 countries. Its North American unit, Schefenacker Vision Systems USA Inc., is located in Marysville, Mich.
