UQM Technologies has signed a lease agreement in Shanghai, China, to open a customer service center for both its fuel cell compressor systems and propulsion systems. The facility will allow UQM to provide quick turnaround for service and spare parts to UQM’s customers, and eventually assemble the fuel cell compressor systems in that region.

UQM Technologies is a developer and manufacturer of power-dense, high-efficiency electric motors, generators, power electronic controllers and fuel cell compressors for the commercial truck, bus, automotive, marine, military and industrial markets. A major emphasis for UQM is developing propulsion systems for electric, hybrid electric, plug-in hybrid electric and fuel cell electric vehicles.

UQM says it has seen dramatic growth in its fuel cell compressor systems, particularly in China, where the fuel cell market is expanding quickly. As the company has previously announced, China is at the beginning of developing fuel cell vehicles and fueling infrastructure, and by 2020 plans to have 10,000 fuel cell vehicles on the road with the infrastructure to support the growth.

The UQM fuel cell compressor system includes the UQM power dense permanent magnet motor and controller, and the Eaton compressor technology. This compressor system is becoming well-known in the market for its large efficiency window, high reliability and low total cost of ownership, according to UQM.

With the establishment of a physical location in Shanghai, UQM says it will now begin the process of creating a wholly foreign owned entity (WFOE) in China. In alignment with management’s overall long-term strategy, the WFOE will support UQM’s other main undertakings in China, including the joint venture with China National Heavy Duty Truck Co., and sourcing and purchasing key components.

With our proven technology, and now our local presence established in China, we are continuing to execute on our strategy for global growth.”
