ASSAB Automotive Concept
Today’s automotive manufacturing industry continues to face growing challenges as it strives to produce cars that are both stronger and safer while being lighter and consuming less fuel. There is also the constant pressure among Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) for new models to be launched quickly and at competitive prices.
