Crouse's R&D activities last year led to localization of hundreds of high-tech parts

1.      Crouse R&D center is divided into vehicle electronic systems and vehicle mechanical systems divisions and has been able to localize many auto parts to date.

2.      To improve technical knowledge and increase productivity, Crouse launches projects in parallel with Amirkabir, Tehran and Sharif universities. About 40 students of these universities are working in Crouse's R&D center now, which in the future they will have the chance to be hired in Crouse.

3.      Last year, Crouse localized new generation of body control unit of number of local cars, different types of switches, new generation of ECU with specific features and design and manufacture of mechanical components of electrical platforms.

Crouse, with three decades of work in production of automotive parts, has been designing and localizing many advanced automotive parts in its R&D center. About 250 people are working in two electronic and mechanical divisions of Crouse R&D center.

Crouse has always paid special attention to R&D since its establishment and to increase market share focuses on product cost reduction and manufacturing wide range high quality products. Crouse R&D center is divided into vehicle electronic systems and vehicle mechanical systems divisions and has been able to localize many auto parts since 2010.

To improve technical knowledge, reduce production costs, increase productivity, optimize material usage, and manage engineering changes, Crouse launches projects in parallel with Amirkabir, Tehran and Sharif universities. About 40 students of these universities are working in Crouse's R&D center now, which in the future they will have the chance to be hired in Crouse. Normally, such as any other fields, automotive R&D activities are a long-term process and a typical project outcome appearance will take more than one year. Recognizing this, Crouse timely start of projects brings the results at a right time.

Last year, with assistance of Crouse engineers and cooperation with mentioned universities, Crouse was able to localize many parts, such as body control unit, immobilizer, airbag control unit, multimedia, electronic switches, ECU housing, fuse box, etc. for different types of Iranian cars. Regarding the procedure of localization project initiation, a specialized committee setups meeting with different business units to prioritize part localization projects by customer needs and based on technical, operational and economic feasibility study.
