Conflict Mineral Reporting
As part of the company’s commitment to building socially responsible and sustainable business practices, Hanon Systems supports international efforts to address this social issue impacting human rights by helping to reduce the trade of such conflict resources that have been linked to financing the armed conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and neighboring states. Doing so requires an understanding of the materials procured and the composition of these end products. The company commits to providing its customers with the annual disclosure surrounding “conflict minerals,” and encourages supplier partners to act on the same requirements by propagating this due diligence throughout the supply chain in an effort to identify the smelter-level used to process such minerals.
At Hanon Systems, there is a shared commitment to the efficient design and development, and repeatable high-quality production of parts to satisfy the customer. The company is proactively taking action to prepare its sites for the migration from existing international quality standard ISO/TS 16949 to the new International Automotive Task Force (IATF) 16949 standard. This new standard includes specific requirements related to corporate responsibility (section 220.127.116.11) to address increasing market and governmental expectations for improved integrity in social and environmental matters, including ethical integrity.
With a focus set to help build a better world for future generations, research and development teams at Hanon Systems are continuing to expand the company’s scope of product innovation to bolster e-mobility and mechatronic solutions. These efforts aim to lead the technology of tomorrow and deliver even greater value to automakers in support of electric, hybrid electric and fuel cell architectures.

A fuel cell glycol heater heats the fuel cell stack for optimal operation during cold start conditions and eliminates oxygen build up around a fuel cell cathode in the event of vehicle impact. Hanon Systems has developed this critical component to address thermal energy management of fuel cell vehicles. Hanon Systems’ high voltage heater is integrated with a cathode oxygen depletion device to eliminate excess oxygen, if necessary.
- Through design, reduces weight by 10 percent and package space by 42%
- Rapidly heats the fuel cell stack to optimal temperatures during cold start, enabling operation in conditions to -30°C
