Automotive & Mobility

Asia was home to 13 of the top 20 global OEMs in 2018. China is the world’s largest automotive market with 28 million vehicles sold and Japan ranks as the world’s third largest, ahead of Germany. Vehicles designed and developed in Asia are manufactured and sold all over the world.

We’ve worked with a wide range of traditional and CASE (Connected, Autonomous, Shared and Electric) technologies and have closed hundreds of millions of dollars in supply and license deals with Asia’s leading OEMs and tiers. We have an excellent network in the automotive ecosystem and an impressive record.

We’ve licensed electric and alternative fuel powertrains for commercial and passenger vehicles, telematics solutions for on and off-highway fleets, connected car and infotainment solutions, emission control systems, light-weighting materials, and technologies that enable the development of autonomous vehicles.

Our Case Studies

The Brief

Teconnex is a UK-based manufacturer of customized jointing solutions for heavy duty vehicles, engines and exhaust systems. The company appointed Intralink to secure customers in China to underpin potential investment in a local manufacturing plant.

The Approach

Intralink approached the leading OEMs and tiers in China to drive sales under the assumption that Teconnex’s China factory would shortly be operational. 

In parallel to our business development activities, we also identified and conducted due diligence with potential joint venture partners and performed a detailed risk analysis on localization options (JV, WFOE, competitor acquisition, etc.).

The Outcome

We have secured long-term supply deals worth tens of millions of dollars with dozens of leading domestic and multinational companies in China. We also successfully negotiated the commercialframework and Heads of Term for Teconnex’s China JV, which became fully operational in 2012.

Intralink is now driving sales in Japan on behalf of the China JV. We have already secured supply contracts with companies like Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Komatsu, Tenneco, Isuzu, and Mitsubishi Fuso, to name a few.
