Zuken Joins Automotive Industry Leaders to Address Sector Challenges

SAE 2015 World Congress, Detroit, USA, April 21-23, 2015

MUNICH, Germany & WESTFORD, Mass.--()--This spring Zuken joins some of the best and most influential minds in the automotive industry to address current challenges in the sector. Reinhold Blank, Business Director Automotive at Zuken, speaks at two key industry events to discuss solutions for automotive electrical/electronic design challenges. These include reducing cost and weight in wiring harness design while increasing functionality, and managing high-speed design interfaces as a global team.

Blank says: “These events, held in the automotive strongholds of Detroit, USA and Ludwigsburg, Germany, are great opportunities for us to share experiences and discuss future requirements, as well as potential solutions, with leading automotive experts. Many attendees are customers since Zuken has a market share of around 40 percent worldwide in the area of electrical schematics in automotive. As part of our automotive growth strategy, we are working hard to extend our technical and market leadership in this area.
