BSST and Visteon originally signed a long-term agreement to develop an array of commercial heating and cooling products for the automotive industry featuring BSST's proprietary efficient and environmentally friendly advanced TE technology effective January 2003.
According to Amerigon non-executive Chairman Oscar (Bud) Marx, "This agreement preserves our ability to continue working with Visteon, which has been an excellent development partner and permits us to explore broader use of our proprietary thermoelectric technology with additional automotive suppliers."
Amerigon's BSST subsidiary is focused on providing highly efficient, effective, and practical solid-state temperature control solutions to industry, while continuing to advance the leading edge performance of its thermoelectric technology through sustained research and development, and through joint development efforts with leaders in major application markets throughout the world. In addition to Visteon, BSST is working with Herman Miller, the U.S. Department of Energy and several United Technologies Corporation companies, including Carrier Corporation.
Amerigon (NASDAQ:ARGN) develops products based on its advanced, proprietary, efficient thermoelectric (TE) technologies for a wide range of global markets and heating and cooling applications. The Company's current principal product is its proprietary Climate Control Seat(TM) (CCS(TM)) system, a solid-state, TE-based system that permits drivers and passengers of vehicles to individually and actively control the heating and cooling of their respective seats to ensure maximum year-round comfort. CCS, which is the only system of its type on the market today, uses no CFCs or other environmentally sensitive coolants. Amerigon maintains sales and technical support centers in Southern California, Detroit, Japan, Germany and England.
