HELLA AND PLASTIC OMNIUM SIGN ‘STRATEGIC COOPERATION’ PACT

Automotive suppliers Hella and Plastic Omnium are entering into a ‘strategic cooperation’ to develop new integrated front and rear lighting for vehicles. Hella contributes to the collaboration through its competence in automotive lighting technology, while Plastic Omnium brings the expertise in plastics processing for exterior body parts. The plan is to also bundle the corresponding development resources together at one site in Germany.

“Lighting is shaping vehicle design more than ever and the demand for individualisation and differentiation will continue to grow in the future. Additionally, lighting can also contribute to communication and safety in automated driving scenarios,” said Hella CEO Dr. Rolf Breidenbach. “By further deepening the collaboration with our long-standing partner Plastic Omnium, we will have additional opportunities to further drive these market trends and offer our customers new levels of freedom in terms of functionality and design.”

Rolf Breidenbach of Hella and Laurent Burelle of Plastic Omnium ink the agreement

The firms have already been working together successfully for several years as part of the joint venture HBPO.
