Roechling Automotive, an expert in plastics processing, has embarked on a dramatic expansion into far more complex products that involve electronics, mechatronics and more.

It  began a decade ago with active grille shutters, says Vincent Mauroit, Roechling’s general manager of innovation and business development. Such devices, which improve vehicle aerodynamics, involve electronic controls and electric actuators. The company has been rapidly expanding its expertise ever since.

Now Roechling is considering partnerships that could help it move into the autonomous vehicle market. Says Mauroit, “We cannot limit ourselves anymore to plastics.”
