Freudenberg Sealing Technologies CEO to Discuss Industry Disruption at CAR MBS Conference
Plymouth, Mich./USA, July 25, 2018. Freudenberg Sealing Technologies CEO Claus Moehlenkamp will speak at the annual Center for Automotive Research Management Briefing Seminars (CAR MBS) conference in Traverse City, Mich./USA, Aug. 1, sharing his perspective on automotive industry disruption and his company’s strategy for embracing successful change. Freudenberg Sealing Technologies is one of the world’s largest sealing solution providers and is the largest business unit of the Freudenberg Group headquartered in Germany.
Moehlenkamp will discuss the impact that new mobility technologies, including electric mobility and fuel cells, will have on traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) markets. He will join two other industry executives, Bo Andersson president of Yazaki Europe and Dr. Matthias Erb, Head of Holistic User Experience, Volkswagen AG at a 10 a.m. to noon discussion titled “Disruption & Integration: Auto in a New Mobility Era.”
Suppliers will have to adapt to survive, Moehlenkamp will tell session attendees and highlight how Freudenberg Sealing Technologies is implementing new business strategies that will capitalize on emerging opportunities. With nearly 70 percent of its automotive sales at risk, the company is already implementing a multi-point plan founded on internal realignment, new partnerships and ongoing technology development and investment efforts.
