Close work­ing re­la­tion­ship with Steca

We will con­tinue to deepen our part­ner­ship with Steca. Next to shared use of re­search find­ings we will co­op­er­ate on fur­ther de­vel­op­ment of ex­ist­ing sin­gle-phase and three-phase de­vices, bat­tery in­vert­ers and com­ple­men­tary prod­ucts.

While Steca Elek­tronik GmbH fo­cuses on sin­gle-phase in­vert­ers and so­lu­tions for stor­age sys­tems, our prod­uct range in­clud­ing both prod­uct seg­ments will con­cen­trate pre­dom­i­nantly on three-phase sys­tems for pri­vate and com­mer­cial cus­tomers.

 

De­vel­op­ment of the co­op­er­a­tion will ben­e­fit through this smart di­vi­sion of work from the in­di­vid­ual strengths of both part­ners. Ul­ti­mately, this will re­sult in a larger prod­uct port­fo­lio for both par­tys, which can also be made avail­able to the mar­ket with much shorter lead times. Our close part­ner­ship also ben­e­fits our cus­tomers. “As a spe­cial­ist in power elec­tron­ics, we con­cen­trate on our strengths. We take a tar­geted ap­proach to de­ploy­ing re­sources in or­der to per­fectly meet the needs of the mar­ket.” tells Michael Voigts­berger, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of Steca.

 

Dr. Man­fred Ger­hard, who be­came the new Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of KOSTAL In­dus­trie Elek­trik on 01.07.2017, ex­plains the back­ground of the smart con­nec­tion be­tween KOSTAL and Steca: “Af­ter some time of suc­cess­ful, pro­ject-based de­vel­op­ment co­op­er­a­tions with Steca, this agree­ment un­der­lines our shared goals of quickly pro­vid­ing our cus­tomers with a com­plete range of in­vert­ers and stor­age sys­tems from one source and there­fore as­sum­ing an even more com­pet­i­tive po­si­tion on the mar­ket.”
