CNH Industrial has opened a new technical centre in the Detroit Metro area of Michigan, U.S. The facility is designed to support CNH Industrial's electrification efforts and capabilities.
"This new location underlines our commitment to growing our electric vehicle and subsystem profile, and marks yet another milestone after successfully expanding our in-house team," says Marc Kermisch, chief digital and information officer and ad interim chief technology & quality officer at CNH Industrial. "Under one roof our team can now leverage cross-functional and cross-sector expertise at both component and machine level. The result sees us becoming more customer-focused and building mission-fit electrified drivetrains and high voltage systems."
An expanding electric footprint
This new site will complement and partner with the company's existing electrification site in San Matteo, Modena, Italy.
CNH Industrial aims to accelerate electric equipment innovation and create new use applications in the agriculture and construction industries with electric equipment.
"As an employer, we are investing in talented and motivated people who augment our in-house electrification capabilities," said Kevin Barr, the chief human resource officer at CNH Industrial. "This new hub means we can tap into a unique talent pool who will change the face of agriculture in the years to come."
