Hella, a German lighting and electronics manufacturer, has teamed up with Emicol to produce electronic products in Brazil. Sao Paulo-based Emicol is a supplier of components utilized in the automotive, home-appliance, information-technology and medical sectors. This components maker will assist in the production of Hella body-control modules for a major worldwide automotive manufacturer.

Production is anticipated to start in the next 12 months at an Itu-based Emicol Eletro Eletronica facility in Sao Paulo, Hella disclosed. Hella Brazil Automotive LTDA's managing director Wendell Gomes Schmiedecke revealed that Hella will make a substantial investment in equipment for its latest Brazilian manufacturing operations.

He also stated that Emicol will manufacture and store Hella electronics products in line with the program. He also said that the new alliance will "strengthen" the foothold of Hella in South America as well as further "broaden" their manufacturing presence all over the Americas to further enhance the service which Hella offers to its customers across the region.

Additionally, Hella said it sees an opportunity for additional growth in the South American region for accelerator pedal sensors, intelligent battery sensors and throttle position sensors, among other electronic products. Recently, the company completed a 50,000-square-foot expansion at its Iturbide electronics plant in San Jose, north of Mexico City. This spring, it will start building a $97 million facility in Irapuato, Mexico, to produce taillights and headlamps.
