TROY, Mich. (Sept. 26, 2006) — The alliance that produced Bosal Delphi Complete Exhaust Systems has won its first contract since Delphi Corp. and Bosal Group joined forces last year.
The contract—worth $235 million over its lifetime—calls for a complete exhaust system in North America expected by 2009. That system will include a “hot end” sub-assembly—consisting of converter assemblies and a “Y” pipe assembly—supplied through Delphi's JV partner, Katcon. Bosal-supplied “cold end” assemblies will consist of a resonator, muffler assembly, intermediate pipe and tailpipe assembly.
In an effort to bring together each company's specific expertise, facilities and resources, Delphi and Belgium-based Bosal entered a new non-equity based strategic alliance in May 2005 to offer complete exhaust systems for the global original equipment market.
“This first Bosal Delphi business win is a promising sign for the future of the alliance,” said John Miles, president of Bosal International—North America. “This is the first step in gaining prominence across the globe. As Bosal Delphi gains more business wins, awareness of its innovative approach and commitment to advanced technologies will multiply.”
Bosal is a manufacturer of tow bars, complete exhaust systems for passenger cars, catalytic converters, complete exhaust systems for trucks and industrial applications, roof bars and roof racks, jacks and toolkits, cabins, irrigation equipment, precision steel tubing and warehouse racking systems. Delphi produces mobile electronics and transportation components and systems technology.
