Auto-component maker Stuken makes India debut
The country will see a number of prominent legislation changes in the next few years to improve safety and reduce emissions in both two and four wheelers. These begin with all two-wheelers with more than 125cc having mandatory anti-lock braking systems by April 1, 2018. Airbags will also become compulsory in all new cars from July 1, 2019. Speed limit reminders, seat belt reminders, reverse parking sensors and a manual override switch for central locking systems are further features soon to be mandatory in cars.
Aside from these measures to increase passenger and pedestrian safety. The government will also enforce the much stricter Bharat Standard (BS) VI emission norms by April 1, 2020.
To prepare for this, Indian car-makers are developing their own systems or are setting up local production capabilities. And they are looking for suppliers and partners with the necessary know-how and technical capabilities.
In a situation such as this, a component manufacturer like Stuken could be a great partner for Indian manufacturers. Stuken is a German manufacturer of automotive components supplying parts to various carmakers internationally and in India. The company specializes in metal components for conventional drive systems in cars, components for automotive lamps, power sockets and switches. The company also makes over 60 components for exhaust sensors and 40 sensors for electric/hybrid drive vehicles. These products can come in handy for the Indian car market and help manufacturers achieve the relatively tight targets set for them.
