Bodo Möller Chemie launches FASt (Future Automobile Solutions) initiative for future mobility High-performance materials for the implementation of alternative drive technologies
The rapidly expanding Bodo Möller Chemie Group is taking a step into the future: With the FASt (Future Automobile Solutions) initiative, the specialty chemicals company combines applications and the necessary processes for electrical and hybrid means of transport that are intended to drastically reduce CO2 emissions. This also includes future technologies such as Near Field Communication (NFC), Smart Communication and Solution as well as Smart Connectivity. “Smart is the collective term for closely networked industries and manufacturing technologies for the mobile solutions of the future, which require considerably more material and application knowledge for development and ongoing production. With our initiative, we offer a future laboratory for users,” says Frank Haug, CEO of the Bodo Möller Chemie Group. On this basis, the Bodo Möller Chemie Group expects sales to double to 200 million euros, a large part of which will be with products for the growing alternative CO2 neutral mobility.
Chemical materials are becoming increasingly important in the areas of lightweight construction, production efficiency, insulation and installation of battery packs, thermal management and safety. The charging infrastructure is also subject to the challenge of ensuring not only electrical safety but also efficient and rapid expansion with pre-assembled assemblies. The technology is also developing faster and faster in 3D printing – whether rapid prototyping or modern series production: printing technology is advanced and enables very high-quality results with the right print media.
The CASE – Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants and Elastomers business unit of Bodo Möller Chemie GmbH has also been headed by Florian Krückl, its own Vice President Global Business Management, who is dedicated to the global expansion of the sales and partner network. This will be accompanied by the new motto of the specialist chemicals company: “Together for the future! For Bodo Möller Chemie, the changed industrial world also stands behind this motto: “Delivery of goods against order has long ceased to be our task. We offer our own advanced training program, an Adhesive Competence Center, and comprehensive application and certification knowledge,” is how Frank Haug describes the orientation of the Bodo Möller Chemie Group.
