o you know the old joke about the optimist who falls off a 100-story skyscraper and shouts to the people on the 99th floor, "OK so far!". As the saying goes, hope spring eternal. At the moment, nobody in the branch can say whether they will have a soft or hard landing in the automobile crisis. A number of automotive suppliers may have no chance at all of surviving a fall from such a great height. And it is impossible to tell whether others will follow suit and go into free fall or whether help is around the corner in the form of some kind of bailout. Since the middle of the year, state cash for clunker programmes seem to have been helping faltering car markets in Europe, Japan and the USA recover from the slump somewhat, but all the same, sales levels are a long way from what they were. What will things be like on these markets once the car-scrapping schemes run out? It is not much consolation that we will soon find out, and does not make planning for 2010 any easier. Plus it is unclear whether the growth potential of the markets in the BRIC states (Brazil, Russia, India and China) can cushion falls, despite the fact that China's superlative growth seems to confound even the greatest of expectations every year anew. In this connection it has to be remembered that these markets are unstable, as evidenced by the setback in Russia. On the other hand, they can also function seemingly autonomously, almost decoupled from the global economic situation, as the positive example of Brazil shows.

It is thus unknown whether the traditional giant suppliers from Europe, Japan and the USA can equally benefit from the gains in the BRIC countries, or whether new, i.e. unknown, market participants will be turning possible home advantage to account. After all, it is no secret that both India and China have strong domestic OEMs and suppliers. And both these countries have governments that blithely do all they can to protect their home-grown auto industries. It is thus not without reason that players from emerging countries are putting in a first appearance in the global Top

Innovation as a rescue net
100 ranking – see China's Weichai Power – or returning to it again, as demonstrated by Alfa (Nemak) of Mexico. On top of all this, there is an urgent need for high investments in research and development due to the rise of new drive technologies and alternative power sources for the hybrid and electric cars of the future. Experience shows that suppliers often foot a large part of the respective bills, and the probability that this will change any time soon is highly unlikely. The only consolation is that this is a factor that will be affecting suppliers all over the world, without exception. The ultimate question is thus not which supplier is innovative enough, but which one will be taking the relevant innovations to market, and how quickly.

Strategy: Significant declines in general economic conditions and production levels of automobiles, an unfavorable change in the mix of TRW´s product sales and continuing inflationary and pricing pressures have forced TRW to reevaluate all aspects of its business and determine the best approach to mitigate these negative conditions. TRW continually evaluates its competitive position in the automotive supply industry and whether actions are required to maintain or improve their standing. Such actions may include plant rationalization or global capacity optimization across their businesses. TRW has become a leader in the global automotive parts industry by capitalizing on the strength of its products, technological capabilities and systems integration skills. Over the last decade, TRW has experienced sales growth in many of its product lines due to an increasing focus by both governments and consumers on safety and fuel efficiency. TRW believes that such focus on safety and fuel economy is continuing as evidenced by ongoing regulatory activities and given uncertainty over fluctuating fuel costs, and will enable the company to experience growth in the most recent generation of advanced safety and fuel efficient products. Such advanced products include vehicle stability control systems, curtain and side air bags, occupant sensing systems, electrically assisted power steering systems, electric park brake and tire pressure monitoring systems. With research and development, manufacturing and sales facilities located around the world, TRW Automotive is positioned to meet the changing demands of both established and emerging markets. The company has the strengths to respond to pent-up demand in Europe, and to meet the needs of growth markets such as China, India, Brazil and Russia. In fact, more than 70 percent of TRW’s sales come from outside of the United States.

Rheinmetall was established in 1889 as Rheinische Metallwaaren- und Maschinenfabrik Actiengesellschaft. Today, Rheinmetall AG is a financially strong, internationally successful player in the markets for automotive components and defence equipment. The Automotive sector, parented by Kolbenschmidt Pierburg AG with its divisions Pistons, Air Supply, Pumps, Aluminum Technology, Plain Bearings, and Motor Service, specializes in modules and systems “for every aspect of the engine”. The Defence sector with its divisions Land Systems, Weapon and Munitions, Propellants, Air Defence, C4ISTAR and Simulation and Training, is one of Europe’s leading suppliers and foremost specialist in the market for land forces equipment. Rheinmetalls Automotive sector develops and manufactures eco-friendly auto industry products. In an age where the number of motor vehicles is growing worldwide and the global climate changing, the Kolbenschmidt Pierburg Group as a development partner of automotive manufacturers addresses their needs for solutions in the areas of emission control, fuel reduction, weight loss and performance enhancement while reconciling mobility trends with environmental protection requirements. Automotive market A market leader in air supply, emission control and pumps as well as in the development, manufacture and aftermarket supply of pistons, engine blocks, and plain bearings. leader in: Main automotive Major OEMs, main customers include Daimler, Ford and Porsche customers: R&D data: Rigorously managed Automotive expenditures: The Kolbenschmidt Pierburg Group invested €146 million (down from €148 million), with emphasis on the setting-up and expansion of facilities in the best-cost countries of India, Mexico and the Czech Republic, extending large-bore piston business, innovative production technologies, the development of customer projects and productivity improvements. At Pune in India, an infrastructure investment project for setting up an industrial park is almost completed. This will be used in unison by the Kolbenschmidt Pierburg divisions including Pierburg Pump Technology for water, oil and vacuum pumps. In France and Italy, the expenditure bill included supplier tooling and new-product start-ups; in Germany, extended water circulating pump capacity with a new assembly line and winding shop. Besides the outlays in Brazil and the USA for creating exhaust gas recirculation system production capacities, Pierburg invested in a second production shop at its Czech location. Finally, this division installed high-productivity manufacturing plant for the successful rollout of several cooling unit projects. R&D by corporate sector: Automotive: FY2008: €138 million, FY2007: €126 million, Defence: FY2008: €61 million, FY2007: €53 million. In fiscal 2008 groupwide R&D accounted for €199 million (up from €179 million), including €175 million (up from €156 million) directly expensed and another €24 million (up from €23 million) capitalized as development costs. The ratio of R&D expenditures to sales was 5.1 percent in 2008 (up from 4.5). R&D activities at Automotive in 2008 centered on long-term auto industry trends: curbing of CO2 emissions, the introduction of tighter exhaust gas standards, such as Euro 5 and Euro 6, reduction of component costs through state-of-the-art manufacturing methods and optimized products, and extended environmental requirements such as zero-lead bearings. Revenue split: The corporate sector Automotive reported sales of €2,055 million for 2008, which was €194 million or 8.6 percent short of the 2007 figure. In the first nine months of the year it was especially the weak US market that brought about sales losses of €45 million or 2.6 percent. Sales for the full 12 months were chiefly hit by the Q4 plunge of €149 million (down by 26.8 percent) attributable both to ongoing US production shrinkage and the dramatic production cutbacks by European OEMs. Apart from the aftermarket operations, all the Automotive divisions were hurt by the business decline. Slumping Q4/2008 demand at Pierburg meant that this division generated appreciably reduced sales from all its product groups, except air management. The only product group at the Pierburg Pump Technology division to show sales growth was water circulating pumps. Electric water pump sales were stable while vacuum and oil pump business wilted. The Pistons division generated double-digit growth rates with its large-bore pistons yet without offsetting the weaker demand for the smaller variety. The Plain Bearings division reported lower sales of metallic and Permaglide bearings as well as continuous castings. The latter decline was chiefly due to falling raw material prices and a remixed product range. The Aluminum Technology division encountered shrinking sales in all product groups. Aftermarket business at Motor Service proved resilient to the auto market recession thanks to the successful implementation of its growth strategy and prospering business operations in South America. Exports at Automotive accounted for a substantially unchanged 67 percent (down from 68) of sector sales. European exports made up the largest sales share, 44 percent, just as in earlier years. Asia and the Middle East contributed 5 percent to Automotive’s sales, North and Central America 11 percent, South America 6 percent, and other regions 1 percent. Strategy: With a very good performance by its Defence Sector, Düsseldorf-based Rheinmetall AG demonstrated strength within the crisis-ridden economic environment of fiscal 2008. Thanks to a healthy order situation and much improved profitability in the Defence sector, the Group was largely able to absorb its automotive business burdens. As part of the further consolidation of its internationalization strategy, the Automotive sector amplified its presence in both India and China during 2008. On the heels of the Pierburg division, Pierburg Pump Technology is the second division to be represented in India—by the newly founded Pierburg Pump Technology India Private Ltd. based in Mumbai, Maharashtra. This will allow the Rheinmetall Group’s Automotive sector to dig deeper into this increasingly important market and more easily exploit the region’s growth potential. Also reaching out into the Indian market has been KS Aluminum Technology, specifically the lightweight aluminum component segment with its ample growth potential: A license agreement was signed with Jaya Hind Industries Ltd., Pune, on the development and production of cylinder heads, engine blocks, bedplates, and other castings destined for (inter) national OEMs and their vendors.On behalf of the MS Motor Service division, the newly set-up MS Motor Service Shanghai Trading Company Ltd. is supplying from its Shanghai base China and neighboring countries with aftermarket products. The company provides engineering competence in the form of local training and additional services while benefiting from cooperation with other Kolbenschmidt Pierburg companies already resident in Shanghai. KS Kolbenschmidt and Metaldyne Corp., a subsidiary of the Japanese auto industry supplier Asahi Tec, have entered into a worldwide strategic partnership for jointly developing and marketing high-duty, lightweight and low-friction piston modules and assemblies. Two widely recognized partners are thus providing integrated R&D and projectmanagement with the aim of improved control in the development, supply and quality assurance of these engine components. KS Kolbenschmidt’s R&D competence in piston module development is supplemented by the joint development and marketing agreement made back in 2007 with NPR Nippon Piston Ring.

This increase in work yielded success in both divisions and resulted in a significant rise in the number of applications for new patents from 12 (in 2007) to 22 in 2008. In total, Leoni now runs 10 centers worldwide for development work on wiring systems. Revenue split: The Wiring Systems division´s external sales increased by 53 percent to 1,510.5 Mio Euro in 2008. The LWSF Group, Leoni Wirings Systems France SA, provided 573.6 Mio Euro to this total. Wire & Cable Solutions (48.1% of 2008’s sales), Wiring Systems (51.9% of total sales 2008). Strategy: On 2 January 2008, Leoni acquired from Valeo SA (vendor) 100 percent of the shares in the French company Valeso Systems de Liaison based in Montigny-le-Bretoneux near Versailles, which has direct or indirect holdings in further 14 subsidiaries and a 50 percent share in a joint venture. The company has meanwhile been renamed Leoni Wirings Systems France SA (LWSF) and is allocated to the Wiring Systems division. The aquired group of companies develops, produces and distributes wiring systems for vehicles including the related components for a customer base comprising PSA, Renault/Nissan, FIAT and Seat as well as several automotive component suppliers.
