The French manufacturer Hopium announces the signing of a partnership with Saint-Gobain Sekurit, a world pioneer in the manufacturing of automotive glazing, to co-develop the glazing of the Hopium Machina, its high-end hydrogen-powered sedan.
This new major industrial cooperation is part of the manufacturer’s ambition to build the future of mobility, by bringing together pioneering companies around its project, true leaders in their sector, with recognized know-how and expertise.
Hopium intends to build on the experience of Saint-Gobain Sekurit to provide innovative solutions that combine design, safety, thermal and acoustic comfort, in order to create the best user experience possible on all of the vehicle’s glass surfaces.
“We are proud to be able to collaborate with a major player in the French industrial heritage, as part of the development of the Hopium M?china. We share with Saint-Gobain Sekurit’s teams the same taste for innovation and the desire to explore future solutions to push the limits of technology.” – Olivier Lombard, CEO and founder of Hopium
“Saint-Gobain Sekurit is delighted to support Hopium, a French start-up committed to green mobility. Saint-Gobain is pursuing its objective of reducing the group’s environmental impact, which is also reflected in solutions adapted to a more sustainable mobility.” -Tim Jurkowski, VP Sales, Marketing & Projects at Saint-Gobain Sekurit
The process, already underway between the two entities, should lead to the presentation, in 2022, of the first pre-industrialization vehicles of the Hopium Machina.
