ABSTRACT
This article reports that UGN Inc., a Japanese- and Swiss-owned interior trim supplier, is expanding into the vehicle carpet business in North America. The joint-venture company says the patented sound-deadening material in its trim parts will be used for floor coverings, too. Nissan North America Inc. will use UGN's "Rieter Ultra Light" material for the carpets in an unspecified vehicle to be built in Smyrna, Tennessee, starting in late 2006.
