KYB Corporation have announced the opening of a new European technical centre based in Munich, Germany.
The technical centre is tasked at enhancing KYB’s product development capabilities for both OEM and aftermarket automotive components, as well as improving customer technical support.
KYB Europe vice president Mike Howarth explained: “I am delighted that this new technical centre has opened, strengthening our customer support and new product development, furthering our commitment to be the number one supplier for our OEM and aftermarket customers in Europe”.
The new technical centre opened on 3 April 2018 and will function as a branch of KYB Europe GmbH, adding to the nine branches and five factories on the continent.
The centre will work to further KYB’s reputation for pioneering technology in the suspension market, as demonstrated recently with the joint development of progressive hydraulic cushions with PSA, used on the new Citroen C5 Aircross, currently receiving rave reviews.
