Leoni focuses on EV charging cables in new division
Automotive supplier Leoni announces a new business unit. ‘Charging & Power Solutions’ will unify the company’s cable business and focus on electromobility. The product suite ‘EcoSense’ covers cables for all types of charging, including new liquid-cooled solutions for HPC.
Leoni lists the liquid-cooled High Power Charging cables as the latest addition to the range alongside cables for 1- and 3-phase AC charging for domestic and public charging stations as well as DC charging for fast charging systems.
According to Leoni, all products are approved for the European, American, Japanese and Chinese markets.
Michael Walz, Director of Sales & Product Management, also reassured customers that Leoni would continue to offer other products for the household appliance, building and lighting industries. “Yet the demand for our electric charging solutions is so great that we have redirected the focus of our development work,” Walz said.
The company has an in-house simulation and testing department. Here, the components are laid out virtually and tested in close collaboration with customers under real conditions during development.
For production, Leoni runs EcoSense facilities in Germany, Poland, China and Mexico. The plant in Cuauhtémoc, Mexico, recently increased by more than 40%, and the company says it plans to invest in more plants worldwide to cover the high demand from the market.
Walz added, “Along with production capacity, we also put more resources into development and distribution, meaning that we are very well equipped with our international network for the likely further growth. The new name of ‘Charging & Power Solutions’ now also projects the changes of recent years to the outside.”
