Dana Opens Advanced Research, Development Center In China To Support Regional Vehicle Manufacturers Across Multiple Markets

WUXI, China, March 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dana Holding Corporation (NYSE: DAN) today announced the official opening of the company's new 12,000 square-meter (129,000 square-foot) technical center in Wuxi, Jiangsu Provence, China. 

The Dana China Technical Center will provide advanced product and applications engineering for original-equipment manufacturers in the light-vehicle, commercial-vehicle, and off-highway markets in China and throughout the Asia-Pacific region.

The Dana China Technical Center includes a 5,800 square-meter (62,000 square-foot) test lab and provides 3,200 square meters (34,000 square feet) of manufacturing space to supplement the 17,000 square meters (183,000 square feet) dedicated to manufacturing at the adjacent Dana Wuxi Technologies Company, Ltd., facility.

"Dana has a long history of product innovation, and the Dana China Technical Center will allow us to further leverage technology synergies across all the markets and customers we serve around the world," said Roger J. Wood, president and chief executive officer of Dana. "We have recognized the importance of supporting the Chinese market for more than two decades, and we will continue to allocate an increasing share of our resources toward supporting our customers in the region."

Dana serves more than 100 customers in China including Beijing Jeep Corporation, BMW, Daimler, Dongfeng Motor, Ford, Jinbei, SAIC, Sany, SGM, Southeast Motor Corporation, Toyota, VW Group, XCMG, XGMA, and Zoomlion.

The Dana China Technical Center – the company's 15th advanced engineering facility around the world – is devoted to the research, design, development, and testing of drivetrain, sealing, and thermal-management products.

Fully integrated into Dana's global research and development system, the Dana China Technical Center has been equipped to support new products from concept development through launch, as well as to adapt technologies developed elsewhere in the world for the specific needs of the China market.

Currently home to more than 50 engineers, the engineering staff at the Dana China Technical Center will increase to a total of 130 by 2016 to facilitate the delivery of new product offerings for China and the rest of the region.

Most of the engineering activities at the center are currently focused on Dana's growing off-highway portfolio for the region.  The company will take a balanced, strategic approach that leverages this engineering expertise to grow business across all market segments.
