Benteler Establishes HOLON, a New Brand for Autonomous Mobility.
BENTELER is underlining its global business ambitions in autonomous Mobility by establishing a new brand – HOLON. As a result, the BENTELER EV Systems business unit, which was spun off at the end of 2021, will change its name. As HOLON, the company will in future focus on the business with fully electric, autonomous movers.
Ralf Göttel, BENTELER Group CEO explains: "Mobility worldwide is undergoing rapid change. BENTELER is optimally prepared for this – 85% of our products are technology and propulsion-method agnostic. In parallel with the traditional automotive business, innovative, digitally connected, and autonomous mobility services promise high growth in the coming years. With our engineering and manufacturing expertise, we are predestined to fill a gap in this hitherto strongly software-dominated field. By founding HOLON, an independent legal entity, we can react flexibly to changing customer requirements in this dynamic market. In this way, we will make the best possible use of growth opportunities."
Marco Kollmeier, Managing Director of HOLON, emphasizes: "Autonomous movers are an essential part of tomorrow's Mobility – emission-free, comfortable, reliable and, above all, inclusive. HOLON will be the first OEM for autonomous movers with the standards and scaling potential we know from the automotive industry. With our platform technology, our vehicle expertise, and our strong partner network, it's our goal to redefine passenger transport – in both the public and private sectors."
