A company on the upward trend

Vue aerienne

In January 2013, the Belgian company PUNCH Motive International, today named PUNCH Motive International (PMI) bought up the former General Motors Strasbourg site under the name of PUNCH Powerglide Strasbourg SAS (PPS). Since this date, PMI and its owner, Guido Dumarey, have invested the equivalent of 250 million euros in modern and digital production facilities and 72 million euros in research and development.

Located on the banks of the Rhine, close to the German border, PUNCH Powerglide enjoys a key geographic location with all the supply chain resources required to export its products to bordering countries and across the world.    


In 2015, PUNCH Powerglide opened up a subsidiary in Tianjin, China with a view to bolstering its coverage of the Chinese market and being closer to its partners and clients of the automotive sector.
