SAIC “Fuel Cell” Tech day

On Mar 27 2015, NOK-FREUDENBERG (CHINA) (NFC) staged a tech day in the R&D center of SAIC Motor Corporation Limited (SAIC) on the topic of “fuel cell” technology. The tech day event was initiated by Gasgoo, one of the co-organizers, who has hosted a similar series of theme activities over the year. This time, the theme was “being close to OEMs”. As the other co-organizer, SAIC not only provided the venue for the tech day, but also nominated a lot of its suppliers to participate. NFC was strongly recommended by SAIC due to that it is SAIC’s one of the most important suppliers.

The ongoing deterioration of environmental pollution has urged more and more OEMs to ramp up their R&D efforts on eco-friendly technologies. As a crucial power driving component in new energy cars, fuel cell’s technical level and quality standard are decisive for comprehensive vehicle driving experience. At this tech day, some existing and potential suppliers presented their 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 fuel cell expert to give illustration at the tech day. In addition, they also delivered lectures to NFC colleagues in advance and meticulously prepared relevant products. At the event, NFC showcased a wide range of sealing products applied in fuel cells which aroused great attention from SAIC’s technicians and purchasers.

NFC has forged a good business relationship with SAIC. Its oil seals are widely applied in engines and transmission systems in automobiles. Nearly all SAIC car models are using NFC sealing products. By virtue of its presence at this tech day, NFC was invited to have direct discussions with SAIC’s technical executives for some potential projects, which is a sign of good business outlook. The tech day was a success. NFC not only demonstrated its strength in new energy vehicle sector, but also further strengthened its business cooperation with SAIC. NFC expects to and is confident of further cooperation with SAIC.
