September 16, 2021 by MANUFACTURING Automation
Linamar Corporation has announced the formation of its eLIN Product Solutions Group. The group’s goal is to leverage electrification opportunities for its mobility and industrial products and future new markets.
The company will deliver eLIN products to the market using its global footprint and McLaren Engineering’s development and testing capabilities.
“Creating eLIN allows us to lever our existing resources while focusing a team on innovating exciting new electrified solutions for all of our customers in all of our businesses,” said Jim Jarrell, Linamar’s president and COO.
The four key focus areas for the eLIN group are power generation, power storage, propulsion systems and structural and chassis offerings for electrified vehicles in all of the company’s businesses. The group will develop electrified product solutions and electrification strategies.
Linamar’s McLaren Engineering group has made several advancements in electrifying products. The company, therefore, believes that a dedicated group will build on these advancements to deliver competitive electrified solutions to its current and future markets.
“This electrification-focused eLIN group is another great step for us in delivering competitive innovative electrified products to markets that are increasingly demanding electrified solutions. Electrification is a key source of growth for Linamar, and we believe eLIN will be a key driver of Linamar’s success in delivering advanced solutions,” said Linda Hasenfratz, Linamar’s CEO.
