Tremec has opened a new development and manufacturing facility at its site in Zedelgem, Belgium. The expanded 8,000m² plant increases engineering, development and testing and manufacturing capacity.

The facility houses state-of-the-art engineering offices, test laboratories and manufacturing operations, and has been configured to allow for further expansion which could double the company’s current footprint, if further large-scale customer commitments require.

Notable among the new test equipment installed are the loaded transmission test cells, enabling the development of components and systems including full vehicle testing. The two test cells can provide 2E and 3E capabilities at up to 650kW input.

Tremec CEO Antonio Herrera said at the opening of the new facility, “I am pleased to open this new facility, which adds capability for transmission and driveline technology development and manufacture within the EU.

“This new technical center and manufacturing hub is part of our company’s coordinated strategy of global expansion, through which we aim to position Tremec as a leader in high-quality, high-torque transfer solutions for the most demanding of automotive and commercial vehicle applications worldwide.”
