SHANGHAI, China — Yesterday, Delphi Corp. held a groundbreaking ceremony celebrating the start of construction for its first R&D center in China. A wholly owned entity of Delphi, the China Technical Center is expected to open in June 2005.
The center, which will be located in Shanghai, China, will focus on developing components as well as support application and systems engineering for several local customers and transplant automakers in the country, in addition to global customers.
Delphi said it will initially employ approximately 500 engineers, scientists and technical professionals at the center.
Part of its efforts to expand the company’s “global footprint,” Delphi said it plans to have approximately 1,400 engineers, scientists and supporting staff in China, in time for Shanghai’s World Expo in 2010.
