Dawn Heng, Director of Global Marketing for Daramic, stated, “We are glad Honda was excited to participate in such an event. This showcase is another example of automotive manufacturers seeking deeper collaborations with suppliers throughout the value chain. As electrification continues to play an important role in automotive ecosystems, it is important to understand not only the battery needs, but the overall system needs. For example, the battery management system and other electric components require much more interaction with the battery than ever before. It’s only through understanding ecosystem needs completely that will allow us, alongside auto manufacturers, to develop solutions in a systematic manner. Asahi Kasei, with its breadth of automotive solutions, has positioned Daramic and its sister companies to deliver solutions that meet automotive manufacturer electrification requirements.”
