Kongsberg Automotive announces huge contract for Pruszkow plant


Kongsberg Automotive (KA), a Norwegian manufacturer of seat comfort, driver control and other car systems, on 20 July announced that it has won a “historic” €287m contract for the production of car seating systems for leading car makers at its facility in Pruszkow (Mazowieckie voivodship).

The contract, which according to KA is one of the largest ever secured by its interior division, covers the manufacturing of fixed and adjustable pneumatic lumbar support systems, seat heating and seat cooling ventilation. Production is scheduled to start in the second half of 2014 and the largest volumes are to be produced and delivered between 2016 and 2023.

According to KA, these seating systems will be some of the most advanced in the market, and the deal will trigger more growth opportunities going forward.

Established in 2000, Kongsberg’s factory in Pruszkow has over the past few years expanded its workforce to over 1,000. (In 2011 KA relocated to Pruszkow production of parts for luxury-car seats from Burton-on-Trent in England.) Its customers include Rolls-Royce, Mercedes, BMW, Audi, or Volvo.
