Rheinmetall Automotive wins follow-up orders
Pumps for North American market worth €140 million
The Rheinmetall Group’s auto parts unit has won follow-up orders with a lifetime volume of around €140 million. A well-known American OEM has ordered two different pump models from Rheinmetall subsidiary Pierburg Pump Technology US, LLC for gasoline engines in passenger cars. Both of these pumps are manufactured in Celaya, Mexico, where production began either in Fall 2019 or is set to start this year.
One of the products ordered is a tandem pump, which was partly developed by Pierburg Pump Technology US, LLC in Auburn Hills, Michigan, USA. The tandem pump is a combined oil and vacuum pump.
The order also includes variable oil pumps.
These oil pumps have been expanding their market share for some time now. Their most important advantage: Depending on the temperature, rotational speed, and load status of the engine, their output can be flexibly adapted to the required oil flow. Both models contribute to greater fuel efficiency in modern gasoline engines, as well as a reduction in harmful emissions.
