SAIC “Fuel Cell” Tech day

On Mar. 27th 2015, NOK-FREUDENBERG (CHINA) (NFC) participated a tech day themed of “fuel cell” technology in the R&D center of SAIC Motor Corporation Limited (SAIC). This event was organized by Gasgoo which is one of its theme activities on the topic of “being close to OEMs”. As the co-organizer, SAIC not only provided the venue for this event, but also initially nominated a lot of its suppliers to participate. As one of the important suppliers of SAIC, NFC was strongly recommended.

With the ongoing deterioration of environmental pollution, eco-friendly vehicles are becoming the R&D targets of some OEMs. As a crucial power component in new energy cars, fuel cell’s technical level and quality standard are decisive for vehicles’ overall driving quality experience. At this tech day, some existing and potential suppliers presented components and parts used in fuel cells. One of NFC’s mother companies, NOK Corporation pays great attention to this event and gives NFC support in terms of manpower, technology as well as product. NOK Corporate Technology Office assigned 2 experienced technical persons who are expert in fuel cell technology to give onsite illustration at the tech day. In addition, they also delivered lectures to NFC colleagues in advance and meticulously prepared concerning products. At the event, NFC showcased a series of sealing products in fuel cell and aroused great attention from SAIC’s technical and purchasing people.

NFC has sound business cooperation with SAIC. Its oil seals are widely applied in engines and transmission systems in automobiles. Its products are used in nearly each model of SAIC’s cars. Taking opportunity of this tech day, NFC was invited to have direct discussion with SAIC’s technical management for some potential projects. The business outlook looks very good. The tech day was a success. NFC not only demonstrated its strength in new energy cars, but also further consolidated its business cooperation with SAIC. NFC expects and is confident of further cooperation with SAIC.
