The automotive industry is subject to increasingly intense competition. Faced with a tighter squeeze on prices and margins, many manufacturers are moving production to lower-cost countries in the East. So automotive manufacturers need a trusted partner with global delivery capabilities.
In addition, rising environmental pressures are increasing demand for lightweight metals/alloys and plastics. Technically advanced welding solutions can help automotive players design lighter, more fuel-efficient cars that release fewer emissions.
