Getrag and Dongfeng begin construction of new DCT plant in China
23 October 2013
Getrag and joint venture partner Dongfeng Motor Group Co., Ltd. have begun the construction of a new dual-clutch transmission plant in China. Starting in 2016 the facility in Wuhan will produce 6DCT150 dual clutch transmissions for the Asian compact car market.
The joint venture with Dongfeng was signed kast year. The new strategic alliance provides innovative transmission products to Dongfeng, the second largest passenger car manufacturer in China, helping the company to further strengthen its market position. Getrag, the largest independent system supplier for passenger car and light commercial vehicle transmissions worldwide, benefits from a second strong pillar in the Asian market, expanding its business in China and beyond.
As early as in Q4 2014 first manufacturing equipment will be installed in the new plant in order to execute production trials.—Stéphane Duminy, Executive Vice President of the joint venture Dongfeng Getrag Transmissions
