Valmet Automotive is Finland’s most important automotive company. 6,000 employees in Finland, Germany and Poland – including more than 1,000 engineers – specialise in vehicle development and production. The experienced company has extensive technology centres as well as production facilities for components and complete vehicles.
Both BETTERFLOW and Valmet Automotive have acquired a high reputation as innovative pioneers in their fields. At the same time they are focusing on practical implementation. We are delighted to start a cooperation with this partner, who not only has excellent expertise in the development and construction of robust and extremely compact kinematic systems, but also shares the same passion for innovation, quality and sustainability.
Pre-series delivery is scheduled to start in mid-2019; series production is scheduled to start by the end of 2019. From December 2018, interested customers, freight forwarders and fleet operators can order the fuel-saving rear wing systems for refrigerated trailers.
