FEV North America Inc. in the press – FEV North America Inc. invests in the Energy Systems Innovation Center at the Clemson University in South Carolina

FEV, a leading developer of advanced powertrain and vehicle system technologies, is one of the first partners to establish operations in the Charleston area at the Clemson University Restoration Institute (CURI). This rapidly expanding hub of automotive, energy, and defense-related technologies will allow FEV to support their customers and explore partnerships in the area. The announcement was made by FEV North America Inc. acting CEO Dr. Patrick Hupperich.

“The North Charleston facility will provide a great deal of exposure to a wide variety of industries,” said Hupperich. “We believe this is a strategic location that creates an FEV engineering center of excellence in the Southeast to serve our customers in the region.  It will also provide a launch point for business development and relationship building activities with both current and potential customers, including those beyond our traditional service areas, such as aerospace, manufacturing, and advanced materials.”

The location at the Clemson University Restoration Institute in North Charleston will support FEV’s traditional capabilities, including design, analysis, prototyping, and system development.  FEV also plans to leverage its expertise in the development and testing of in-vehicle systems and vehicle connectivity technologies, including infotainment and telematics systems.
