A first in North America

On February,8 th in Dearborn, MI, USA the first KIRCHHOFF Automotive Technology Fair in North America took place at the Ford Product Development Center. The Sales, Communications Marketing and Engineering teams put together an outstanding fair, worthy of being remembered not only by a great display of the company’s technological capabilities; but also by a remarkable turn out of over 470 attendees in less than 6 hours.

The Ford Motor Company’s Product Development Centre  is home to over 5,000 engineers ranging between body structure, to seating and front end specialists. For the first time in North America our Sales Department, assisted by Communications & Marketing and Engineering decided to showcase our global company technologies within one of our OEM partners.  Overall, there were 16 parts from our global operations shown; with an additional 3 prototype technologies, showcasing the best of our capabilities and research and development.

With over 470 attendees in less than 6 hours, this technology fair was a great success. On special invitation from Arndt G. Kirchhoff, Birgit Behrendt, Vice President of Global Programs and Purchasing Operations at Ford joined our team in the afternoon to see first-hand, the lightweight technologies KIRCHHOFF Automotive has to offer. “I’m proud of what our teams have accomplished at this show. The second part now, also very important, is the follow up and we have every intention to continue putting our best foot forward with Ford.” shared Josh Forquer, VP of Sales about the first ever KIRCHHOFF Automotive technology show in North America.
