Semcon’s and ESG’s German joint venture has received its first assignments for General Motors

Semcon and ESG set up a joint venture in August last year to provide competitive solutions for after market information to General Motors. It has now received its first assignment: to supply service instructions, labour times and illustrations to one of GM’s future vehicle platforms. The assignment will run until 2010.

“The confidence shown in us through this assignment demonstrates that our joint investment with ESG was right. It is also rewarding that we have received the assignment in the face of tough international competition,” says Johan Ekener, Vice President of Semcon’s business area Informatic.

“Most likely this is just the first in a range of assignments for GM. The fact, that in this assignment our joint resources in Germany, Sweden and the UK will be involved, demonstrates the attractiveness of our pan-European offer,” says Wolfgang Sczygiol, Head of ESG Automotive.

Semcon’s and ESG’s joint venture is a consortium (split 50/50) between Semcon and ESG. The joint venture is established to carry out project-based assignments for GM in the area of after market information.
