The ambiance that an automobile interior manifests plays a critical role in reinforcing a brand promise. It is the first true impression experienced by a potential buyer. Successfully executed interiors immerse occupants in the perfect harmony of comfort, design aesthetics, illumination, sound, and haptic feel. It is in the vehicle cabin that the finest details convey the greatest impression. Dura-Shiloh industrial designers craft human-machine interfaces that augment your brand experience blueprint.
From the push button start of the engine to the touch of the carbon fiber shift-by-wire selection joystick to the distinct responsive feedback of each gear shift, every sensation is deliberate and precisely engineered. Human factors and safety are designed into every Dura-Shiloh lightweight driver control system, seat adjuster, and frame. Comfort and command are precisely placed, from your seating position to the haptic feedback of the pedal system.
As new materials, electronics and connectivity transform mobility evolution, Dura-Shiloh remains at the forefront of design and technology. Advancements in facial recognition, biometrics, and gesture control will enable exciting new vehicle experiences in the future.

New CAFE mandates are driving innovative powertrain technologies that extend range and reduce CO2 emissions. Dura-Shiloh technologies accelerate this continuous evolution toward efficiency improvement, at every progressive stage. Our shift-by-wire mechatronic actuators and HMI’s play a critical role in electrifying traditional and advanced automated MTX & ATX gearbox systems. A complete portfolio of smart actuators, integrated with electronics and software drive park lock capability for EV’s and hybrid electric powertrains.
Looking further under the hood, Dura-Shiloh charge-air cooling (CAC) tubes systems interface with superchargers and turbochargers to route compressed and cool air for increased engine output. Inside diesel and internal compression engines, Dura-Shiloh precision lightweight valve spring retainers provide reliable positioning for engine efficiency and durability.
While new creations, including, multi-speed transmissions, battery electric powertrain, hybrid technologies and turbocharging, improve efficiency, they also create monumental challenges for NVH tuning and non-traditional engine/motor mounting. Dura-Shiloh lightweight motor carrier configurations are engineered to deliver optimized stiffness and tuned energy absorption. Our unique aluminum geometries, roll-forming and stretch-bending processes, and robust joining technologies contribute to achieving elevated demands in vehicle performance.
