UFI Filters has announced a major extension to its organisation with the creation of a new business unit dedicated to thermal management systems.
Based at the UFI Innovation Center in northern Italy, the new Thermal Management Business Unit will be independently run and will benefit from a dedicated R&D team.
UFI says this new business unit will address the ongoing shift in the automotive industry towards vehicle electrification, and intends to further develop technological innovation more quickly, to better meet the requirements of the high-performance product market.
The new Thermal Management Business Unit will be headed by Ivano Cordioli, who boasts 15 years of experience in the group and has held various positions of increasing responsibility, ranging from project engineer to business development director.
Rinaldo Facchini, CEO of the UFI Filters Group, says: “The increasing electrification of vehicles is leading us to focus more on this segment, which is why we have created a team dedicated to one of the key factors for electric vehicles: thermal management.
“I am pleased to entrust this job to Ivano Cordioli, who has long experience, and a proven track record at UFI Filters of bringing innovation directly to the OE customer.”
