Our client is a global player in the field of turbochargers for the automotive industry. They have a 20% market share in Europe? That means that 1 out of 5 cars in Europe are fitted with a turbocharger that is made at this plant. For automotive to be able to contribute to global climate objectives, downsizing (a smaller engine with greater power, possibly hybrid) is necessary. Using a turbocharger is the best way to make this technically possible.
