The highly modern facility in Changsha features a 54.000 square meter workshop area and will produce efficient starter motors, generators and components for electrification to reduce CO2-emissions in China and on a global scale. It includes the largest R&D center of SEG Automotive outside Europe and assumes the role of global lead plant for starter motors of commercial vehicles.
The Germany based company is renowned for over a century of technology leadership as well as its global presence with over 8,000 employees in all automotive key markets.
