Mobis begins to supply chassis modules for Mercedes-Benz AG, with luxury and performance automotive brands. Mobis becomes the first non-European supplier for chassis module for the OEM.
Mobis is the global no.6 automotive supplier, headquartered in Seoul, Korea. Mobis has expertise in sensors, sensor fusion in ECUs and software development for safety control. The company’s products also include various components for electrification, brakes, chassis and suspension, steering, airbags, lighting and automotive electronics.

Mobis is now fully operating its new production facility in McCalla, Alabama. The company has built the new site for mixed-model production of chassis modules for 4 different electric SUVs.
The chassis-module is a generic term for the parts assembled under the car body, e.g., the steering, braking and suspension system. It also refers to the set of parts for these systems assembled on the frame.
Mobis has been accumulated over the past 20 plus years for the module development and assembling experience worldwide. Last several years of R&D and pre-production periods for this new project became a good example of the customer’s satisfaction.
Following the client’s development plans step by step, Mobis strived to concentrate its own R&D efforts with Mercedes-Benz AG to provide the best chassis module solutions. Now the technology and quality control capability of Mobis are recognized by the most prestigious automotive brand worldwide.
“We hope to maintain long-term partnerships with Mercedes-Benz AG,” said Mobis CEO Sung Hwan Cho. “We intend to increase trust with customers based on our excellent technical experience and stable supply capacity.”

The company is currently operating a total of 28 module production sites; 8 are in Korea, and 20 are overseas.
