DEARBORN, MI — The general manager of Visteon’s automotive electronics joint venture in Shanghai, China, has been presented with company’s highest form of recognition — a Summit Award — for exceptional accomplishments in 2003.

Alfeu Doria, general manager, YanFeng Visteon Electronics, was one of six individuals and teams recognized with Summit Awards by Visteon Chairman and CEO Peter Pestillo and President and COO Michael Johnston.

Doria was honored for leading a modernization plan that improved product quality, process flow, lean manufacturing processes and material and product control at the plant, which supplies electronics for audio systems and other vehicle applications. Implemented in September 2003, the modernization helped enhance product quality and expand Visteon’s electronics business in China, the company said.

Doria was chosen from among 46 individuals and teams, representing eight countries, who received quarterly awards for outstanding performance in 2003 under Visteon’s Leading the Way Recognition program.

Doria, a 21-year veteran of the auto industry, joined YanFeng Visteon Electronics in January 2002, after serving as a manager at Visteon’s Arbor Plant in Sao Paulo, Brazil. When Doria joined YanFeng Visteon Electronics, the plant produced mainly audio amplifiers and had a small customer base. Doria led Visteon staff engineers in a detailed review of the plant’s operating practices to improve the facility’s layout, production efficiency and product quality.

As a result of Doria’s efforts, YanFeng Visteon Electronics has significantly improved its product quality and expanded its customer base to include DaimlerChrysler, Fiat, Ford, Jaguar, Mazda, Shanghai General Motors and Suzuki. YanFeng Visteon Electronics received a Gold Excellence Supply Award from Ford in 2003.

YanFeng Visteon Electronics was formed in 1994. It is 70 percent owned by Visteon and 30 percent by Shanghai Automotive Industrial Corporation, an auto manufacturer based in China. The plant has about 500 employees.
