Punch Powertrain is an independent full system supplier of fuel efficient powertrains. With over 45 years of experience in the production of CVTs, Punch Powertrain also offers electric powertrains for New Energy Vehicles such as Hybrids (48V &PHEVs) and Electric Vehicles (EVs), as well as DCTs.
Punch Powertrain is an international player, with a strong presence in Europe and China. In addition to the headquarter in Sint-Truiden, Belgium, the company runs 6 more R&D centers, located in Germany (2), France (1), the Netherlands (1) and China (1), allowing close cooperation with the customer and short communication lines. Economies of scale are achieved by concentrating production in 3 facilities in Belgium and China.
Since 2013 Punch Powertrain is growing rapidly thanks to:
- a continuous focus on quality improvement
- a constant focus on costs
- innovations in green powertrain technologies
- highly-motivated and valued employees
Our significant growth is driven by a strong focus on product innovation, with about 30% of all employees working in R&D. Our innovation focus has enabled us to develop revolutionary DCT concepts, which lead to new future business in new markets, such as Europe and India. Following the same rationale, Punch Powertrain established a strong position in the field of New Energy Vehicles, with the acquisition of Inverter specialist APOJEE in France and a number of Joint Ventures (eg. the JV with XPT in China).
