Tata AutoComp Systems, global supplier of automotive components on Tuesday said it has made significant contribution in engineering, design and supply of components to the Nano car.

“Our teams have been working closely with Tata Motors right since the inception of the project to design and engineer various components, keeping the cost superior quality and performance parameters in mind which required design and process optimisation,” Tata AutoComp Systems COO RS Thakur said in a release.

Besides cost, the other challenge that the team at Tata AutoComp faced was trying to lower the weight of each component, it said.

The company developed various components for the first time, Thakur said.

To get the components to fit into a small space without compromising on functionality, safety or aesthetics was a challenge, he said.

“It was this challenge that led to a lot of innovation,” he added.
