ContiTech Fluid Technology Expands Product Range

New segment can offer all lines for air supply systems  Further ex-panding of plastics competence
(PresseBox) (Hannover, ) The Fluid Technology business unit of ContiTech AG, Hanover, has undergone a structural realignment and divided the Heating/Cooling/Turbocharger segment into two new, even more effective segments. The Heating/Cooling Systems segment will concentrate on the previous water-related product areas, while the new Air Induction Systems segment will look to a larger market. In addition to charge air lines, the product range will also include all other lines for air induction systems. It will also focus on building upon and internationalizing the segment's plastics expertise.

The Heating/Cooling/Turbocharger segment has been separated due to divergent developments in the markets for the respective product lines and a deviation in product life cycles. The previous segment grew strongly in the past and has added a number of new locations. "Separating it into two distinct segments means that they can each target their respective markets even more specifically," explains Matthias Schönberg, head of the business unit.

Mihály Nagy will oversee the Heating/Cooling Systems segment. Nagy previously managed in Hungary the largest ContiTech plants for this product area. Joachim Geimer, previously responsible for the Power Steering & Chassis Control segment, will take over at the helm of the AIS segment. Florian Fauth will succeed him at Power Steering & Chassis Control. Fauth was formerly segment manager for Heating/Cooling/Turbocharger.

Drawing on its comprehensive materials and process engineering expertise, ContiTech Fluid Technology is a development partner and original equipment supplier of hose technology to the automotive industry and many other important industries, offering everything from hose components right through to complex line systems. The range of materials used includes rubber, plastic, textiles, steel and aluminum for hoses, curved hoses, hose lines and tubing as well as their fitting components.

The company focuses its expertise on nine product market segments: Power Train, Industrial Hoses, Air Conditioning, Fuel Supply & Exhaust Gas Management, Commercial & Industrial Vehicles (CIV), Oil & Marine, Power Steering & Chassis Control, Heating & Cooling Systems, and Air Induction Systems.
