“Vitesco Technologies is using its electronics expertise and a clear focus on electrification growth to help lead the automotive industry’s transition toward more sustainable mobility,” said Stoller. “We are excited to share our vision and amplify our voice among our customers and within the industry as an innovation leader.”
As agency of record, Bianchi PR will provide Vitesco Technologies with ongoing public relations, media relations and thought leadership support in North America, especially across the automotive, commercial vehicle and related mobility sectors.
“While we’ve worked with many automotive and commercial vehicle suppliers throughout our 30-year history, this is the first time working with a 150-year-old startup that already ranks among the top 30 automotive suppliers in the world,” said Bianchi. “Helping this ‘new’ company that is all-in on EV powertrain solutions to build its recognition as the perfect partner for vehicle manufacturers aligns perfectly with our mission: to help innovators make mobility, and the world, better.”
