NNG Expands Automotive Footprint with American Acquisition

Already a leading supplier of navigation software, content, and services, NNG plans to develop infotainment and HMI technologies, which highlights the company’s growing influence in the automotive market.

nfuzion specializes in advanced technology solutions for the automotive industry. Their capabilities range from industrial and UI design to mechanical and electrical engineering. They bring 14 years of in-car entertainment knowledge to NNG, having worked with numerous international car brands, and give NNG a new range of tools, products, and consulting to utilize on future projects. NNG and nfuzion had previously worked together and expressed mutual interest in combining their efforts.

“We identified a strategy that would enable NNG to expand its presence in cars,” said Péter Balogh, CEO of NNG. “It was obvious early in our cooperation that we shared a passion for the automotive industry and HMI design, and we recognized the same problems facing automakers today. Combining NNG’s expertise in navigation software and nfuzion’s expertise in HMI design, we can solve those problems.”

“This acquisition has served as validation for years of hard work,” said Kris Hanon, Principal of nfuzion. “Being able to lend our HMI experience and services to an international company like NNG is truly inspiring. I have no doubt that such a collaboration will take our products and vision to a new level of innovation.”

Now a subsidiary of NNG, the nfuzion team and their offices in Georgia and Virginia will fall under the NNG umbrella. This expansion continues an upward trend for NNG, which has increased its revenue by nearly 50% and its workforce by over 20% in each of the last 4 years. NNG now has close to 700 employees, with further recruitment efforts planned for the future.
