Strategic Collaboration Webasto and WhisperPower
Webasto and WhisperPower have entered into a Global Distribution Partnership Agreement, which was driven by Webasto Thermo & Comfort’s desire to add electrical power products and systems to its product offering and the ambition of WhisperPower to rapidly expand its global distribution.
As a result, WhisperPower products will become available via the Webasto network in a large number of countries, including Belgium, Denmark, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain and UK. Distributors, wholesalers, dealers and installers will be able to bundle key products which are essential to provide comfort on board of yachts, commercial craft and vehicles and can obtain these from a single source in their territory. The strategic collaboration with WhisperPower as an electrical power specialist is in line with Webasto’s aim to become a key player in the e-mobility market. To achieve this, Webasto expanded into e-mobility products and solutions in three specific areas: Heating solutions for all kinds of drive types to enhance battery performance and cabin heating; the engineering and assembly of high quality design-to-cost battery systems; and furthermore Charging solutions and Services to fulfil the needs of private and semi-public customers.
By entering this agreement with WhisperPower, Webasto is also adding, in one go, a complete range of products and systems that generate power in those places where there is no fixed or reliable network connection available.
