Bankrupt supplier Delphi may reportedly set up a trading arm in China to better cope with retail operations in the country.

According to Reuters, the company could import vehicle electronics, diesel systems and other components not currently produced by Delphi China, to deal with the country's growing number of car owners.

Delphi currently has 11 manufacturing facilities in China, providing parts for General Motors Corp and Volkswagen AG amongst others.

Delphi China was not available for comment when contacted by just-auto.
