Thermal technology and powertrain development are the main pillars of driving innovation in Germany. Our Eching facility added a new car air-condition testing facility recently. 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 already introduced the Japanese society to European culture in the 17th century, the first representative office was established in Amsterdam, The Netherlands In 1972. One year later the regional headquarters Nippondenso Europe (now DENSO International Europe) was established in Weesp, The Netherlands. Since then DENSO Europe grew and has sales companies and manufacturing plants all over Europe.
