Automotive supplier and interior specialist Visteon Corp. celebrated this week the expansion of its Yanfeng Visteon Automotive Electronics (YFVE) manufacturing facility in Shanghai, China. The expansion aims at strengthening the company's position in the Chinese market.

The expansion more than doubles the size of the plant to approximately 30,000 square meters (323,000 square feet); the facility now can accommodate up to 1,300 employees. The plant produces a full product range including driver information, audio and infotainment, and center stack controls. The expansion boosts the plant's yearly capacity by almost 50 percent and allows it to incorporate more world-class manufacturing equipment and processes for improved operational efficiency.

"The expansion of our Shanghai plant enhances our capabilities to better serve our customers with the highest quality products," said Decio Mendao, general manager of YFVE. "It truly demonstrates our commitment to continuously deliver exceptional value."

Established in 1994, YFVE claims to be a market leader in automotive electronics in China, designing and manufacturing a full range of automotive electronics components and systems for both domestic and overseas markets. YFVE has five manufacturing facilities in China and a technical center in Shanghai. It serves a wide range of both international and domestic Chinese automakers.
