Hanon Systems Wins IR52 Jang Young-Shil Award for Automotive HVAC Solution

SEOUL, Korea, Nov. 7, 2016 – Hanon Systems (KS:018880), a leading global provider of automotive thermal solutions, has been named co-winner of the IR52 Jang Young-Shil Award with Hyundai Motor Company for its triple zone heating, ventilation and air conditioning  (HVAC) for passenger vehicles.


The IR52 Jang Young-Shil Award is an annual award presented to companies in Korea with technologically outstanding and innovative new products. The award is presented in the name of the Minister of Science and Technology, and is jointly sponsored by the Korea Industrial Technology Association and Maeil Business Newspaper, a leading Korean business publication.


Hanon Systems’ award winning Triple Zone HVAC is a single module that enables vehicle occupants to independently control the temperature, mode and strength of air flow in their immediate proximity to create an individual cabin comfort experience for the driver, front and rear passengers.


The unique and compact design of this technology reduces overall weight and material cost by up to 18 percent compared to other multi-zone solutions, and improves packaging in the engine compartment to enable more available space in the vehicle cabin.


“Hanon Systems continues to focus its efforts developing solutions that bring value to customers and end consumers,” said In-Young Lee, president and chief executive officer of Hanon Systems. “This award serves as proof of our technical expertise and capability to deliver leading-edge technologies in this highly-competitive industry.”


The Triple Zone HVAC was first introduced in Hyundai’s premium brand Genesis EQ900.
