Kimball secures manufacturing contract

Kimball Electronics' Jasper, Indiana facility has received a new three-year contract to produce Automotive Bluetooth hands-free radio devices.
These complex high frequency devices wirelessly pair to Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones and provide drivers with clear “hands free” cell phone calls through the vehicle’s audio system and are available on a number of global automotive brand vehicle platforms. Annual volume is expected to exceed 500,000 units.

The new contract was awarded by an existing customer, a top five North American tier-one automotive supplier, who named Kimball Electronics Group among their primary EMS suppliers. Kimball has been manufacturing Bluetooth devices, since 2007 at its Jasper, Indiana production facility. Market acceptance of the devices has exceeded expectations and significant growth is anticipated despite the general downturn in the automotive market. These popular Bluetooth devices allow drivers to keep their eyes on the road and hands on the wheel, thus aiding driving safety.
