Autoneum produces wheelhouse outer liners in Hungary
The Swiss automotive supplier Autoneum, Winterthur, opened a plant for the manufacture of lightweight components for acoustic and thermal management in Komárom, Hungary. At Autoneum’s sixth Eastern European production site, multifunctional carpet systems will be produced in series for a German premium car manufacturer. The 12,000-m2 plant will in future supply German and British manufacturers with carpet systems, inner dashes and wheelhouse outer liners as well as other NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) components just-in-time at their nearby production sites in Hungary and Slovakia. The first carpet systems for the models of a German premium car manufacturer will roll off the production line in a few weeks. Furthermore, lightweight textile wheelhouse outer liners produced in Komárom will be built into a fully electric SUV of a British manufacturer, thereby contributing to noise and weight reduction of this model.
