Delphi Customer Technology Center Michigan Vehicle Test Laboratory

The Vehicle Test Laboratory at the Delphi Customer Technology Center Michigan (CTCM) is designed to support virtually any automotive component or system development activity at a vehicle or powertrain system level. The Lab can create complete powertrain systems development vehicles and portable test carts which serve as "rolling laboratories" for powertrain systems development teams. The Lab can also provide test trip assistance and development activity support at customer sites.

Activities in Delphi's Vehicle Test Laboratory are conducted by a highly trained and experienced staff that understands the challenges facing manufacturers today. Laboratory services are conducted according to industry standards and designed to meet individual customer schedules and enable competitive costs. Professional, experienced account management provides customers with single-point contact to streamline test coordination.

The Vehicle Test Laboratory offers quick turnaround time and maintains customer confidentiality. Delphi supports customers who do not have in-house testing, or require "overflow" testing services.
