Dayco strengthens hybrid and EV research partnership


Dayco has strengthened its relationship with the Politecnico di Torino to develop hybrid electric systems for vehicle manufacturers across the globe.

The speed of transition to sustainable forms of vehicle propulsion is gathering pace, particularly in the light of global climate change and the shift in public opinion towards environmentally friendly alternatives. This means that high-level collaborations for the benefit of humanity must become a reality.

The objective of the agreement, which was signed on February 21 between Dayco and Politecnico, is to research hybridisation systems and effectively develop the necessary technology innovations supporting vehicle manufacturers as they achieve the transition in an efficient, practical and sustainable way.

Head of Politecnico di Torino, Professor Saracco (R) and Dayco’s CEO, Joel Wiegert, signed the research agreement at the offices of Dayco Europe in San Bernardo di Ivrea, Italy.

“We are enthusiastic to strengthen our relationship with the renowned scientists of the Politecnico di Torino.  This new level of cooperation will provide leading hybrid system solutions to achieve a sustainable future of mobility for our customers globally,” said Joel Wiegert, CEO of Dayco.

“Building on our past areas of collaboration with Dayco, we have assembled a powerful innovation interdisciplinary team to enhance our contributions in developing electrified mobility technologies,” said Professor Guido Saracco, head of Politecnico di Torino.
