Comau has entered a strategic alliance with Mullen Automotive, Inc., an emerging EV manufacturer for the build-out of a vehicle body shop at Mullen’s Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering Center (AMEC) in Tunica, MS, United States.
The reason behind this partnership is to develop a state-of-the-art body shop for the new and upcoming Mullen FIVE EV Crossover.
Comau has 45 years of field-proven experience and a strong presence within every major industrial country. Comau and Mullen are working to deliver the most accurate and quality body shops to enhance the overall production of the FIVE.
“Comau is an international leader in developing world class automation technology and vehicle body shops for the automotive industry. We are excited to have them working on developing our body shop plan for Tunica AMEC.” — David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive.
Supporting Mullen’s design process and equipment for the AMEC facility, Comau’s vast experience in designing body shops for the automotive industry gives Mullen a leading edge in efficiency and quality for the BIW (Body in White).
“Comau continues to focus its advanced competencies and longstanding experience toward the development of strategic markets such as Electrification. As such, it is always a pleasure to work with a new electric vehicle manufacturer to support the widespread deployment of E-Mobility solutions. This project confirms our commitment to progressing the mobility of the future.” — Laerte Scarpitta, Comau’s Leader of the Americas
According to Mullen, the FIVE is built on an EV crossover skateboard platform that offers multiple powertrain configurations and trim levels in a svelte design that is “Strikingly Different” (Mullen's tagline) and exciting to experience in person.
