JATCO to Build CVTs in China

JATCO Ltd, an affiliate of Nissan Motor, is opening a plant to build steel-belt continuously variable transmissions in China at an initial cost of roughly ¥6 billion (US$50.5 million).

The Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, plant is expected to start operating in mid-2009 with an initial production capacity of 140,000 units per year for front-wheel drive vehicles. The new factory will have a floor space of about 10,000 sq. meters and handle CVT assembly, as well as processing of some CVT parts.

This will be JATCO’s second overseas production site, following first overseas subsidiary in Mexico. JATCO started production of steel-belt CVTs in 1997 and has become one of the largest volume producers of CVTs in the world.
