Feb 11, 2013

Kimball Electronics has been recently awarded an additional automotive electronics assembly contract with Brose Automotive, headquartered in Coburg, Germany. Brose Automotive is the fifth-largest family-owned company in the top 100 automotive suppliers worldwide. A pioneer in automotive window lift safety, Brose was the first supplier worldwide of integrated electronic window regulator control-units designed to minimize the risk of injury in the event of body parts getting trapped in the closing window.

The new multi-year, multi-million dollar contract includes manufacturing of printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs) for electronic switch controls used in vehicle windows. Kimball Electronics – China, located in Nanjing, China, will be one of the manufacturing facilities for this contract. Kimball Electronics-Mexico, located in Reynosa, Mexico, will also be manufacturing assemblies.

This new contract is an addition to the current assemblies and programs manufactured for Brose Automotive in our Kimball Electronics- Poland facility. Kimball Electronics is proud to be able to supply Brose in Europe, North America, and Asia by supporting production from three of our six global manufacturing facilities.

Kimball Electronics continues to be a leading Electronics Manufacturing Services provider to the automotive industry.
