JERUSALEM – In a strategic move to maintain its position in the automotive market that has undergone changes in recent years, Rassini, a leading manufacturer of brakes and springs for most of the world’s largest automotive companies, including GM, Ford, Toyota and FCA, is launching a one-of-a-kind research center in collaboration with the Jerusalem College of Technology (JCT).

Positioned to create a strong foothold in the high-tech world, the center will be located in the heart of JCT’s campus and will be managed by Dr. Shimon Mizrahi, a professor in the college’s Electronics Department. In the past, Dr. Mizrahi led advanced research in NVH mitigation.

The laboratory will be a first of its kind in Israel in its field and will provide direction for future development.

Hector Galvan Venegas, CEO of Rassini Brakes Division, states: “Israel is known as an epicenter for research and development that is strongly connected to industry. This research center at JCT will help formulate the company’s business strategy.”
