Advik Hi-Tech, an automotive component manufacturer, announced a new exclusive technology licensing agreement with Entecnia of Spain for electric vacuum pumps used in passenger car braking systems.
With Entecnia’s patented technology in electric vacuum pumps and Advik’s manufacturing capabilities, this product will cater to electric vehicles and internal combustion engines for automotive applications.
This agreement is a strategic fit as it accelerates Advik to offering the latest technology in electric vacuum pumps for Global passenger car OEMs. In 2021, Advik acquired the manufacturing facility of Hanon Systems in Bangalore, which specialises in mechanical vacuum pumps. With this latest technical collaboration, Advik aims to be ahead of the technology curve for vacuum pumps.
Electric Vacuum Pump is a key product for xEV vehicles including ICE vehicles for Braking systems and this collaboration will widen Advik’s product offering to xEV vehicles.
Aditya Bhartia, Managing Director, Advik Group of Companies, said, “This partnership is a strategic step in growing our customer base and product portfolio. With Advik getting PLI (Production Linked Incentive) for Automotive Components, this partnership makes even more strategic sense as Advik would be able to cater to OEMs entering the xEV’s space as well help them reduce CO2 emission by 2gm/km for ICE vehicles.”
Javier Sanz, Managing Director of Entecnia said, “In Advik we see a great company that works on the latest technologies and pursues growth by adding advanced products to its portfolio ahead of the market need.”
