Visteon Corporation and Yanfeng Visteon have marked the completion of their China Technical Centre (CTC) in Shanghai.

The centre is another milestone in the Yanfeng Visteon partnership between Shanghai Automotive Industrial Cooperation (SAIC) and the global automotive supplier.

The new CTC will be Visteon's center for vehicle interior and electronics technologies for Asia Pacific markets. It will feature product development and lab facilities, as well as testing capabilities for both global and regional applications.

Located in Shanghai's CaoHeJing High Technology Park, the new facility includes an engineering and administration building, and an adjacent testing and development building on 18,000 square meters (about 200,000 square feet).

The main building is designed to accommodate 1,100 employees. The 3,000-square-metre (33,000-square foot) test and development building will house a design studio and a full range of electronic and mechanical testing facilities. CTC will also serve as the global electronics base for Visteon and the head office of Yanfeng Visteon.
