Hidria signs 30 million euro deal at CWIEME Berlin

Slovenian motor component manufacturer Hidria is set to dominate the global electric hybrid drive market after a stand-out deal at CWIEME Berlin 2015.

Last week at the worlds' largest exhibition for coil winding, insulation and electrical manufacturing, Slovenian electric motor component supplier Hidria Rotomatika signed a €30 million deal to supply drivetrain components for use in hybrid cars by Audi and other major automotive brands.


The deal will see Hidria's technology built into half a million vehicles per year in the mid and higher end of the hybrid electric car market from 2016. Hidria already supplies key parts for use in models by Peugeot, Volvo, Volkswagen, Renault, Mercedes and Chrysler.

The company's hybrid electric drives enable extra power on acceleration, while generating electricity when the car is braking or going downhill, and charging batteries needed to start the internal-combustion engine.

Sales director, Aleš Poljanšek is thrilled by Hidria's success. "We have concluded several important deals at CWIEME Berlin and received many visitors this year and in previous years. That's why we put so much effort into our booth. The market is here and the show provides a relaxed atmosphere to chat with and entertain our customers," he said.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
