The mini site is supported by a digital marketing campaign, targeting OEM and Tier 1 suppliers, highlighting Coats automotive products and its approach to detail, which is essential for the high performance demands of the automotive industry
Shantanu Banerjee, President, Speciality, Coats, said: ‘Our new mini site and supporting campaign captures the energy and expertise of Coats Speciality in a way that is new and engaging for automotive manufacturers and suppliers. Our automotive threads are used in airbags, seat trim, seat belts and other automotive applications where thread performance is critical. Our exceptional attention to detail in product development and relationship building reflects the integrity of our experts, and we’re using that message to differentiate ourselves within the automotive industry like never before.’
