Visteon Expands Electronics Plant in China

Visteon's electronics arm in China doubles size of its Shanghai facility to accommodate business growth in domestic and overseas markets.

SHANGHAI – Visteon Corp. this week celebrated the expansion of its Yanfeng Visteon Automotive Electronics (YFVE) manufacturing facility in Shanghai, China. The company said this expansion will help the Visteon electronics joint venture support rapidly growing customer needs.  
 
"The plant expansion further strengthens our already formidable electronics capability in China," said Steve Meszaros, Visteon product group president. "YFVE is one of Visteon’s longest-standing joint ventures in China. We remain committed to supporting its future growth by bringing global advanced technology and world-class manufacturing management experience and practices."

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.
