Eagle Holding Europe – Driven by Success
Separating atmosphere from fluid and preventing leaks, seals are a critical part of many components. Serving the automotive, aerospace, marine and energy sectors, Japan-based EKK Eagle Industry Co. Ltd. has become a world-leader in the manufacture of mechanical seals and components.
Eagle Holding Europe, the company’s European arm, is focused on delivering seals and valve components for the automotive industry.
“We entered the European market in 1991 through our investment in German-based Simrax GmbH”, says president Toshiyuki Yamaguchi.
“Europe’s automotive industry is enjoying its best year since 2008 and as a company we are in a strong position”, says Yamaguchi.
The company is in the process of establishing a new research and development center in Heppenheim, Germany to deliver solutions specifically for the new types of cars, such as electric-powered.
“In the future, different types of cars will be developed and we want to help car manufacturers produce cleaner, emission-free cars”, says Yamaguchi. “We are confident we will exceed our customer’s expectations. Once our new investment in Germany is completed, we expect to become one of the Europe’s well-known names in automotive parts solutions.”
