Bringing an EV charger to the global market
When Vestel Electronics, a worldwide operating electronics player from Turkey, wanted to bring their new electric vehicle (EV) charger to the market, they looked to DEKRA, a reliable and long-standing partner and reputable player in the automotive and EV market. Read our interview with Murat Sarpel, General Manager at Vestel Electronics and Andaç Pamuk, LVD Manager at Vestel.
Our experience, especially for power electronics design, is providing a significant advantage to start the design and manufacturing of new products. We are always seeking new promising areas to get engaged in. In the past couple of years, for example, we have invested in expanding our product portfolio for automotive solutions. Vestel wants to be an important player in this rapidly developing market. We are researching the possibility to develop an entire electric vehicle in the near future.
