DENSO to Establish Powertrain Technologies Corporation in Japan

New company and testing facilities to be constructed on Daian plant premises.

KARIYA, Japan ― DENSO Corp. has announced plans to establish a new company called DENSO Powertrain Technologies Corp. on the premises of its Daian Plant located in Inabe, Mie prefecture, Japan.

The new company and test facility, including a short proving ground, will accommodate powertrain control systems for vehicles and engines. DENSO is investing approximately $91.5 million in the company, which is scheduled to begin operations in October 2010.

“With the establishment of this new company, we will enhance our capabilities of accommodating powertrain control systems for vehicles and engines, as well as help meet the car manufacturers increasing needs,” said Masahiko Miyaki, managing officer responsible for DENSO’s Powertrain Control Systems Business Group. “We also aim to strengthen our product development for powertrain control systems by utilizing the technical know-how gained from these operations.”

Originally conducted at DENSO’s global headquarters, the new company’s accommodation operations will include driving tests of vehicles and engines to determine the optimal control conditions, such as control amount and timing of powertrain control systems to help achieve better fuel consumption, lower emissions and better driving performances.
