Trèves TSC group has been renamed Tesca and is launching its new strategy for design and manufacture of automotive interiors.
The name ‘Tesca’ is said to illustrate the group’s wish to differentiate the company and accelerate its internal and external growth.
“Along with the name Tesca, we are announcing our values and goals: creativity, innovation and worldwide presence dedicated to the automotive industry,” explains Tesca CEO Carl de Freitas. “As a privately owned, medium-sized company among the large automotive system suppliers, we focus on providing a premium level of service. With our 2,800 employees, we generate more than €200 million in sales, and are planning to double by 2025.”
The company is also creating new R&D centre, with a new building located near Reims, France, which will boost the development of innovative seat components and house over 50 people, mostly engineers. The centre has a prototyping unit that serves for short-cycle development for car manufacturers.
“We have other R&D branches in Wolfsburg, Barcelona, Wuhan, Detroit and Mumbai, for greater proximity to our customers, but the teams are guided from France,” notes de Freitas. “With this new R&D centre, linked to our design office in Paris, our teams are focusing on our ‘Challenge Creativity’ hallmark.”
In December 2017, the group established a foothold in North America through the acquisition of Custom Manufacturing and Assembly. This expanded the group’s geographic scope by bringing in two new sites – an office in Greenville, South Carolina and a research and production centre in the Detroit suburbs – providing support to US car manufacturers and to customers’ US operations.
