Youngstown State collaborates with Korean firm

Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) - Researchers at Youngstown State University are partnering with a Korean company to develop electric-car technology.

The Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber said Friday that the university's research foundation has signed an agreement with Power Plaza Co. of Seoul, South Korea. It's the research foundation's first collaboration with an international company.

Power Plaza designs and manufactures components in the power-conversion and power-supply business. Its core product lines are used in many industrial applications, from utilities and telecommunications to the automotive sector.

Final details of the collaboration will be worked out in the next several months, with a tentative start date in January.
