Developing PKC Uniqueness Further
The core of PKC’s strategy is PKC Uniqueness, which refers to the unique know-how of managing complex processes of individually tailored products and thousands of product variants. Uniqueness also refers to PKC’s ability to seamlessly integrate its processes into the customer´s operations. PKC’s concept of “Managing the Complexity” comprises of know-how, processes and tools developed for the management of complexity and provides innovative and customisable solutions for increasingly complex vehicle architecture and enables the fulfilment of PKC’s strategic initiatives.
Maximising current PKC set-up
PKC aims to maximise the business value generated by current business model by strengthening relationships with existing customers on a global level and expanding PKC’s manufacturing footprint in order to meet growing market demand.
Penetrating into Asia
The basis for the strategy are also Asia’s commercial vehicle markets in terms of their dynamic growth in the future. In addition to the growth in production quantities, commercial vehicle markets are subject to a structural change resulting from increased technological complexity both in relation to products and processes. These are due to rigorous emission regulation and increased technology content. PKC wants to be able to respond to these challenges alongside its current customers and leading local commercial vehicle manufacturers.
Expanding within the transportation industry
PKC is looking to explore new customer segments within the transportation industry. We are particularly interested in exploring opportunities in railway vehicles, commercial aircrafts, material handling, and mining equipment as these OEMs face similar challenges as the OEMs in the commercial vehicle industry. With our specialised know-how, we believe that we are well equipped to help these segments answer to their challenges.
PKC’s Electronics business has its own strategy. It concentrates on its special areas of expertise, testing solutions and power management solutions.
