Auto components India - - NEWS -

Con­ti­nen­tal has ap­pointed Kr­is­han Kohli as Head of Busi­ness Unit Ve­hi­cle Dy­nam­ics (VED) in In­dia. He will be play­ing a key role in meet­ing the com­pany’s growth goals and long-term strat­egy of ‘Vi­sion Zero’ in the re­gion.

“With its safety and as­sis­tance sys­tems, our VED busi­ness unit en­sures a sig­nif­i­cant gain in safety and com­fort, mak­ing a de­ci­sive con­tri­bu­tion to the re­al­iza­tion of a fu­ture with zero ac­ci­dents. Kr­is­han’s ex­pe­ri­ence and ex­per­tise will fur­ther strengthen the busi­ness, and re­in­force Con­ti­nen­tal’s po­si­tion in the mar­ket,” Prashanth Doreswamy, Mar­ket Head of Con­ti­nen­tal In­dia and Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Con­ti­nen­tal Au­to­mo­tive In­dia, said. Kohli brings 27 years of ex­pe­ri­ence in Au­to­mo­tive and Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cle mar­kets cov­er­ing both man­u­fac­tur­ing and com­mer­cial busi­ness op­er­a­tions, in­clud­ing pro­duc­tion, qual­ity, en­gi­neer­ing, prod­uct de­vel­op­ment, sales, mar­ket­ing, busi­ness de­vel­op­ment, strat­egy and com­mer­cial op­er­a­tions.

“As a tech­nol­ogy com­pany with a range of in­no­va­tive safety tech­nolo­gies, Con­ti­nen­tal is in an ex­cel­lent po­si­tion to cap­i­tal­ize on the growth op­por­tu­ni­ties cur­rently present in the mar­ket. We have tremen­dous op­por­tu­ni­ties to grow even fur­ther, and I am hon­oured and ex­cited to be part of a great team that will take the busi­ness to the next level,” Kohli said. Con­ti­nen­tal is lo­cal­is­ing the en­tire value chain start­ing from mar­ket­ing to R&D to de­sign ac­cord­ing to lo­cal cus­tomers’ re­quire­ments. In 2016 Con­ti­nen­tal set up a line for lo­cal­iza­tion of An­tilock Brak­ing Sys­tem (ABS) assem­bly, be­sides Elec­tronic Sta­bil­ity Con­trol (ESC) sys­tems, at its ex­ist­ing plant in Gur­gaon. In Jan­uary 2018 a new line for the pro­duc­tion and assem­bly of Elec­tronic Con­trol Units (ECU) for twowheeler and pas­sen­ger car ABS and ESC was in­au­gu­rated in Ban­ga­lore. The busi­ness unit is also present in Tech­ni­cal Cen­ter In­dia, with engi­neers con­tribut­ing to end-to-end prod­uct de­vel­op­ment for projects glob­ally.
