Customers of Canada’s Martinrea International Inc. are moving from standard welded steel or hollow aluminum subframes to the company’s new hybrid system that integrates both materials, says President and CEO Pat D’Eramo.

The system can reduce weight and cut the cost of the assembled component cost by about 30%, according to D’Eramo. The modular construction also enables developers to tailor the same frame architecture to suit multiple vehicle models.
