Peter Pearce discusses repositioning of the automotive supply business, as leading automotive suppliers are leveraging advanced integrated technologies to accelerate and transform their business. He also addresses how manufacturers are looking for solutions to the gap in workforce through process reengineering and technology automation. His advice for the automotive supplier community: “Suppliers need to be brave in this new economy. Historically, we focused exclusively on the needs of customers and not the needs of the industry. As a supplier, we have so much more to offer the supply chain. The new OEMS and the traditional OEMS who are investing in the new EV technology still need the amazing engineering and design the existing supply chain has to offer, but need to develop and think differently on what we make, how we make it, and if we are profitable in doing so. If your product portfolio is exclusively linked to the ICE powertrain today, you need to diversify. Period.” More info: and
