USA/CHINA: Sensor JV expanding to India

By just-auto.com editorial team | 5 December 2005

A manifold pressure sensor joint venture between China Automotive Systems and Sensor System Solutions (3S) in China is to expand to supply the Indian automotive market as well.

In April 2005, the two agreed a joint venture agreement to produce sensors for the Chinese automotive market which will operate as Universal Sensor. This phase of the project is expected to be in place for three years.

The latest project will expand the joint venture agreement beyond China and into the growing Indian automotive market, which industry analysts reckon has been the recipient of major funding and has come of age, upgrading itself in the past few years to meet global standards.
