The supplier Continental Structural Plastics has changed its name to Teijin Automotive Technologies. Steven Rooney, CEO, says it helps the company look like one global entity because previously each region had its own name. And now with the name change behind it, Teijin plans to continue its dominance in composite truck beds and is expanding into making entire battery enclosures.
