Deal bolsters Tier One supplier's in-house electrodynamics capabilities and electrification product portfolio

Dana Inc. recently acquired Pi Innovo, a manufacturer of embedded software solutions and electronic control units to support the light vehicle, commercial vehicle, and off-highway markets.

Dana previously held a non-controlling interest in the company.

Effective March 1, the acquisition of Pi Innovo enables Dana to increase its in-house electrodynamics capabilities and electrification product portfolio by adding a strong library of turn-key electric vehicle application software, vehicle level controllers, and auxiliary controllers.

"The extremely talented and experienced Pi Innovo team have provided exceptional modular software and controls solutions for original equipment manufacturers for more than 25 years," James Kamsickas, Dana chairman and CEO, said. "Integrating Pi Innovo with Dana's leading e-Propulsion software capabilities will further enhance our ability to provide value for our customers as they continue to accelerate their electric vehicle portfolio development."

The software and controls expertise of PI Innovo builds on Dana's capabilities in designing, engineering, and delivering complete vehicle integration for e-Propulsion systems, to further push the company toward vehicle electrification.
