France’s Valeo eyes to import ignition coils from Iran: official
Tehran, Iran, Oct. 19
An official with Iran’s Ezam Automotive Parts Group said the group is mass-producing ignition coils.
“One of the subsidiaries [of Ezam] has set up the assembly line for manufacturing ignition coils,” Abbas Hatami said, IRNA reported on October 19.
Noting that the group’s products are being exported to more than 11 countries, the official said French car parts maker Valeo has voiced eagerness to import the coils.
The Ezam Group with 12 manufacturing companies is involved in the auto parts industry since 1993.
An ignition coil, also called a spark coil, is an induction coil in an automobile's ignition system that transforms the battery's low voltage to the thousands of volts needed to create an electric spark in the spark plugs to ignite the fuel.
