Delphi Opens New Facilities in Korea and Tokyo

Delphi Corp. officially opened its second technical center in Korea this week.

SEOUL, South Korea — Delphi Corp. officially opened its second technical center in Korea this week.

Delphi invested in excess of $20 million to open the center, located in the province of Yong-in, Seoul. A team of 240 engineers and support personnel will initially focus on developing gasoline and diesel engine management systems for its customers.

Delphi’s other Korean technical center is located in Kangwon-Do. The Seoul facility deepens Delphi’s technical resources in the country, while being more centrally located to the Korean automaker’s research and development centers.

“We are committed to Korea and to supporting our local customers here,” said J.T. Battenberg III, Delphi’s chairman, CEO and president.

Battenberg, who attended the inauguration ceremony, said Korean customers will benefit from Delphi’s global strength. “With six technical centers in the Asia Pacific and 34 technical centers worldwide, we can be developing technologies for our Korean customers literally around the clock that will provide value for their programs. We’re excited about the possibilities.”

South Korea is the sixth-largest vehicle manufacturer in the world, with 3.1 million units produced in 2003. By 2007, industry analysts forecast this figure to increase to nearly 3.5M units.

Dr. Dae Un Lee, president of Delphi Korea, said, “with this addition of the Korea Technical Center, we are in the best position to service Korean OEMs both in Korea and overseas, as they further develop their business globally. Delphi’s capability to globally support Korean OEM customers is further strengthened by its global technical center infrastructure with cutting-edge technology competencies.”
