It also is the base of our European material testing laboratory and our European Technical Research team. The Aachen Engineering Center (AEC) is focusing on powertrain development, creating diesel fuel injection systems and components for Electric and Hybrid Vehicles.

Continuous expansion throughout Europe

Since the Dutch had already introduced Japanese culture into European society in the 17th century, DENSO’s first representative office was established in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, in 1972. One year later its regional headquarters, Nippondenso Europe (now DENSO International Europe), was established in Weesp. Since then DENSO Europe has expanded to include sales and manufacturing companies across the region.
