TI Automotive, the global supplier of automotive fluid systems, has officially opened its newest fuel tank systems factory in Guangzhou, China.

The 67,000 sq ft (6,200 sq m) facility is the company’s second fuel tank factory in China and produces blow-moulded plastic fuel tanks for Nissan, Toyota, Peugeot Citröen and Qoros.

The new Guangzhou facility is representative of the growth within the plastic fuel tank segment of the automotive industry, TI said.

“As global automakers look to reduce weight and improve emissions, plastic fuel tanks play a major role,” said Hans Dieltjens, executive vice president, fuel tank systems.

“During the past decade, TI Automotive has developed some of the most advanced blow-moulding production technology in the industry and has been producing award-winning products that improve packaging and component placement while reducing emissions and weight.”

This is the supplier’s 15th factory in China which continues to be a growth area for the company.

“China and the Asia-Pacific region will continue to play a key role in our growth,” said Bill Kozyra, chairman, CEO and president. “We established our first facility in China in 1985 and now have an excellent footprint here but we expect this to grow as our customers increase their reach within the region.”

During the past five years, TI Automotive has opened new factories in the Czech Republic, Mexico, Russia and in additional locations in China to meet industry expansion.

It employs 40 people at the new Guangzhou fuel tank plant.
