Delta, a global leader in power and thermal management solutions, today announced it has been selected by FCA as the 2019 Powertrain Supplier of the Year. The award recognizes Delta’s exceptional commitment in providing innovative and quality automotive products to FCA during the 2018 calendar year. Honorees were chosen based on insights from FCA leadership and several variables related to supplier performance including quality, delivery, cost and warranty. Delta is powering the growth of the electric vehicle (EV) sector through the continuous development of high-efficiency automotive electronics and powertrain technologies. This award underscores Delta’s long-standing stature as a world-class innovator and manufacturer of e-mobility solutions.
“FCA is in the midst of transformational changes and these suppliers are helping enable a stronger future for all of us,” said Scott Thiele, Head of Purchasing and Supply Chain at FCA - North America. “It is an honor to recognize their contributions and dedication, as they represent the best in the industry.”
“It is a true honor to be recognized by FCA for our advanced automotive power electronics product offering and technology. We applaud and will continue complementing their excellent capabilities and current endeavors to accelerate the adoption of e-mobility worldwide, in line with our corporate mission, ‘To provide innovative, clean and energy-efficient solutions for a better tomorrow,’” said Mark Ko, vice chairman of Delta Electronics, Inc.
“Delta’s deep industry expertise and engineering capabilities allow us to serve the world’s top automotive brands,” said James Tang, Delta’s vice president and general manager of its Electric Vehicle Solutions Business Group. "With our strong commitment to R&D globally and participation in many of the world’s leading research programs, we are consistently pushing the boundaries with EV on-board charging technology, electric traction motors and inverters, as well as EV charging infrastructure.

With continuous efforts in research and development, Delta is able to provide the latest technologies to fulfill the highly demanding needs of the EV industry. Two years ago, the company completed a research program with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) exploring wide-band gap-based bi-directional on-board charger modules, which enable vehicle-to-load capabilities. Delta has received additional awards for production-focused programs centered on bi-directional on-board charger module solutions this year, with early advanced development showing positive results.
