Brose at Auto Expo 2012: Mechatronics expertise for the Indian market
• Automotive supplier presents portfolio for Indian market
• Hall 16, Stand 30: mechatronic lightweight systems

Pune (23rd December 2011). For the second time, the Brose Group will be represented with a stand at the Auto Expo in Delhi from 7th to 11th
January 2012. The international automotive supplier will be presenting its innovative portfolio to the Indian professional world under the motto "Brose- Competence in Mechatronics". Ashwani Aggarwal, President of Brose India, will be giving a perspective of the company's future plans at the VDA joint press conference on 6th January at 12 noon in Hall 16 /Stand 10.

This year's product presentation in Hall 16/Stand 30 will focus on the high standards the company sets for its systems: Selected exhibits will clearly demonstrate Brose’s ability to perfectly coordinate its mechanical, electrical and electronic components and systems. In all product areas, the company has the know-how to develop and manufacture its entire portfolio in-house, from individual components to complete systems. Furthermore, all products are available in all regions with tailor-made processes and technologies for the global platforms of customers worldwide.

With innovative skills, the latest production technology and logistics, and above all with strategic investments and services provided in advance backed up by a sound ownership structure, the family-run company offers its customers a long-term partnership. The mechatronics specialist also uses its decades of know-how in mechanics, electrics and electronics to find the right solutions which are tailored to the individual requirements of its customers. This is also the case for the Indian market.
Portfolio for India: high quality standard implemented cost-effectively.

The supplier will be presenting solutions from its closure system and window regulator ranges which have been specially developed for the Indian market. The advantages on the one hand are that the cost-efficient products are adapted to suit the environmental and climatic conditions of the region, and therefore fulfil the local expectations of the Indian OEMs. On the other hand, they comply with international quality and safety standards, and are therefore suitable for use in export vehicles.

Lightweight without compromising comfort and safety
Lightweight construction which is as cost-neutral as possible - without compromising safety and comfort - is one of the objectives of the system supplier’s development work. Weight-reduced window regulators and seat systems, door systems and intelligent holistic solutions for the rear of the vehicle fulfil these expectations and will be exhibited by Brose.

The Brose Group has been present in India since 2006. Presently, around 150 employees are involved in the development of electronics, electric motors, window regulators, seat adjusters and closure systems for the Indian market and other Brose Group locations.

In 2011, Brose opened its first production factory in the automobile city of Pune, where window regulators and manual seat height adjusters are produced for both for the local market and for export. Further customer projects will commence in 2012.
