TI Automotive Opens New Fuel Tank Systems Production Facility In Baoding, China
• Facility produces plastic fuel tank systems for Great Wall Motors Haval line of sport-utility vehicles and crossover-utility vehicles
• New location is TI Automotive’s 17th within China
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (June 15, 2016) — TI Automotive, a leading global supplier of automotive fluid systems, officially opened a new fuel tank systems production facility today in Baoding, China. The 74,000 square-foot (6,900 square-meter) facility is TI Automotive’s third fuel tank production facility within China. The new facility is dedicated to producing low-emission plastic fuel tank systems for Great Wall Motors’ Haval brand of sport-utility and crossover-utility vehicles.
The new facility is located just north of the city of Baoding in the Hebei province and is adjacent to the Great Wall Motors production facility. This is TI Automotive’s 17th facility within China, as the company continues to invest in this important region.
“The Haval line of vehicles is one of the fastest growing brands in China and Great Wall Motors is the largest manufacturer of SUVs and trucks in China,” said Hans Dieltjens, executive vice president, Fuel Tank & Delivery Systems, TI Automotive. “Our goal is to support this growth through our product expertise in fuel tank and delivery systems technology and through this new facility.”
TI Automotive is a global leader in the production of plastic fuel tank systems, with advanced technology and designs, along with award-winning products and processes, including the Tank Advanced Process Technology (TAPT), which won a 2014 Automotive News PACE Award. The TAPT process enables optimized production, variable delivery system placement within the tank shell and optimized packaging. TI Automotive’s Ship-in-a-Bottle production system, used to make partial-zero emissions vehicle (PZEV) plastic fuel tanks, won the award in 2009 and remains an advanced technology today.
“We are proud to support Great Wall here in Baoding and to be a part of the growth of the automotive industry throughout the region as well,” said Bill Kozyra, chairman, CEO and president, TI Automotive.
TI Automotive expects to employ 120 people at full capacity at the Baoding facility.
