Hannover, Germany -- Benecke-Kaliko, Continental's automotive interior sheeting unit, has strengthened it position in Japan by signing a technological cooperation programme with Tokyo-based Tatsuta Chemical Co. Ltd.
â€œThis allows us to reduce development times with Japanese automotive manufacturers all around the world and acquire a new portion of the market,â€ said Benecke-Kaliko AG ceo, Dirk LeiÃŸ, explaining the main reasons for the cooperation.
â€œWe will approach future projects together. This gives our customers extra value, as they only require one contact person for all interior materials,â€ said LeiÃŸ. â€œIn addition to this our plants in Europe, Mexico and China mean that we have a truly global presence,â€ he added.
The Tatsuta Chemical Co. Ltd. has around 120 employees worldwide. Benecke-Kaliko has a workforce of around 1400 and posted sales of Euro 246 million in 2009.
