SMR is a global corporation with world-class engineering and manufacturing capabilities.
Adelaide-based SMR Automotive Australia produces automotive components for domestic and international markets, with 78 per cent of its output exported to customers in the United States, Europe and Asia.
The company is a direct supplier of Australian made mirrors to the US automotive sector.
SMR Automotive Australia has received a $2.4 million Green Car Innovation Fund grant to produce innovative, lightweight mirrors with input from the University of South Australia.
The project will establish a pilot plant in Adelaide to adapt leading-edge technology to manufacture rear view mirrors. The pilot plant is expected to initially supply about eight per cent of the global automotive market’s demand.
SMR is confident the mirrors will lead to more fuel-efficient vehicles, thereby reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
SMR is a member of Samvardhana Motherson Group (SMG).
