China Automotive Systems Reopens Production Centers

Approximately 1,000 workers have reported to the company's main production center in Hubei Province.

China Automotive Systems (CAAS), a leading power steering components and systems supplier in China, has provided an update on the reopening of its operations in China.

As of March 10, CAAS’s production centers in Wuhu Henglong (Wuhu, Anhui Province), Brilliance Henglong (Shenyang, Liaoning Province) and Chongqing Henglong (Chongqing City) have resumed full operations with returned workers and managerial personnel. 

Approximately 1,000 workers have reported to their posts in the company’s main production center in Jingzhou City, Hubei Province. More than 47,000 units of steering systems have been produced and shipped since the reopening of the production centers. CAAS’s corporate headquarters in Wuhan has been temporarily relocated to Jingzhou City until further notice from the Wuhan government.

While the recovery of full production capacity is proceeding rapidly, the company has successfully and thoroughly managed the post-epidemic health inspection and surveillance. As of the date of this press release, there have been no confirmed or suspected cases of infection, CAAS stated. 

Qizhou Wu, CEO of CAAS, commented, “Being in the epicenter of the outbreak, we are very proud of the remarkable progress we made to quickly return to production. After the required quarantine period, we have taken over a few local hotels to supplement our existing corporate dormitory, and centrally managed our staff and attended to their needs from preventive medicare to transportation to dining.”

“We are optimistic that all our production and other corporate activities will shortly be back to full operation,” Wu stated.
