GKN Driveline has opened a new cold-weather facility at the vast Smithers Winter Test Center (SWTC) in Brimley, Michigan. The Michigan Upper Peninsula test site comprises a new 10,000 square-foot facility within the SWTC’s 750-acre complex, where performance evaluations of all parts of a vehicle can be conducted in the harshest of winter conditions. It provides GKN Driveline’s North American customers with a local base at which to comprehensively test the company’s All-Wheel-Drive and eDrive systems in the extremes of cold and hazardous, low-traction road conditions.
