Aachen, 16th of January 2014 – FEV GmbH, a global leader in engineering services for propulsion and advanced vehicle systems, has significantly enhanced its transmission capability with the appointment of Dr. Ingo Steinberg as the new head of the Business Unit - Transmission Systems. Dr. Steinberg brings extensive experience in the series production of automatic and manual transmissions to FEV. Prof. Stefan Pischinger, CEO and shareholder of Aachen-based FEV GmbH, made the announcement.

“This is an important step in maintaining our position as a strong development partner for our customers,” stated Prof. Pischinger. “The addition of Dr. Steinberg will allow us to continue our support from concept to series production, especially in the field of transmission.”
