The MGI COUTIER GROUP becomes AKWEL
A tier-one automotive equipment manufacturer, the Group is now continuing its transformation and international expansion with a rebrand. This unifying identity marks a new drive forward for the group, in line with the dynamic profile of Akwel. Already the preferred supplier of car and HGV manufacturers, Akwel is now in a real position to challenge the world's leading equipment and systems suppliers.
An independent, family-run group for over 45 years, Akwel current operates in five continents with nearly 11,000 employees worldwide distributed across over 42 industrial sites and 8 representation offices in over 20 countries on 5 continents.
Akwel works in two different areas of expertise, fluid management (86% of sales) and mechanisms (14% of sales). It applies its industrial and technological know-how to help master the use and transformation of materials (plastics, rubber, metals), as well as mechatronics, a multidisciplinary field of science essential to the transformation of raw materials. The group also harbours cutting-edge skills in tooling (design, production, and development), complex assembly (welding, joining, collars, overmoulding, snap-ons) and electronics (hardware and software).
Using this finely-tuned expertise, the group’s Research & Development division is constantly adapting to the changing needs of its clients. This has led to Akwel receiving numerous awards, and it has filed nearly 200 patents in the past five years. Its successes include the innovative flush handle which was used in the Renault
Symbioz self-driving concept car.
