Hanon Systems has formally opened Chongqing Hanon Jianshe Automotive Thermal Systems.

Establishment of the joint venture was announced by the company in October, 2017 and involves a direct partnership with Chongqing Jianshe Motorcycle and Chongqing Jianshe Mechanical and Electrical Equipment, two subsidiary companies of China South Industries Group Corporation (CSGC).

“We are proud to stand alongside our partners to witness the official opening of our latest operation in Chongqing,” said Hanon Systems representative executive officer, Min Sung.

“This event underscores the start of a bright future and demonstrates the company’s commitment to support Chinese automakers and global vehicle manufacturers operating in China with locally supplied solutions.”

Located in the Banan district, the 38,000 sqm facility will initially supply variable swashplate compressors and heat pump systems to Changan Automobile, a subsidiary of CSGC. Future plans include the manufacture of heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) modules and powertrain cooling components.

Hanon Systems currently operates 15 manufacturing sites across China, which includes non-consolidated joint ventures.
