Feintool at the 2nd China New Energy Vehicle Summit 2018
During the summit it was stated several times that China is aiming for global leadership on Electric Vehicles as well as their application in mobility solution. Most experts also agreed that the Plug-in-Hybrid Electric Vehicles will play a bigger part than pure Battery Electric Vehicles in the next years, as the infrastructure will not grow as fast as needed for an expanding Battery Electronic Vehicle market.
Stefan Walther, Head of Strategic Planning and Business Development of Feintool, joined the panel discussion about the most advanced New Energy Vehicle technology and business model. He stated that for a supplier like Feintool, it is crucial to be ready for the breakthrough of electric vehicles on the global key markets, amongst which China is clearly a front runner. There are many challenges and opportunities along the change in mobility, and Feintool is already working on concrete solutions in Finablanking and Forming to be ready to conquer the change.

World renown OEMs, automotive components suppliers, solution providers, automotive battery manufactures and infrastructure providers attended the 3 day event which resulted in a good mix of international and Chinese audience.
