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

"For more than 20 years, Dana has been building a reputation in China as the Tier One partner that OEMs can trust for the timely delivery of dependable powertrain solutions," said George Constand, Dana's chief technical and quality officer.  "Our research and development center in Wuxi is the latest example of our commitment to better align with the unique technological and market requirements of our customers in the region."

The new test lab in Wuxi is outfitted with the latest testing equipment for axles, transmissions, materials, NVH, prototyping, inspections, and machining to ensure that products engineered and manufactured by Dana in China meet the company's high standards for performance and durability.  The off-highway test equipment includes an axle dynamometer, three beam fatigue testers, a reverse torsional fatigue tester, a static torsional strength tester, and a 7.5 KW spin rig.

Dana demonstrated the value of local engineering and OEM support in the development of the Spicer ® Rui Ma™ brand of off-highway transmissions and axles launched at Bauma China last year. A quality complement to Dana's flagship Spicer brand of technologically advanced drivetrain solutions, Spicer Rui Ma drivetrain solutions provide an optimized blend of product features, performance, dependability, and cost demanded by purchasers of the majority of construction and other off-highway vehicles manufactured in China today.

The Dana China Technical Center joins the company's growing network of manufacturing, engineering, sales support, and aftermarket parts and service teams in China, as well as Dana's global product service and support resources. Dana currently has 10 facilities in China that employ more than 8,000 people, including those operations in which Dana holds a minority interest.

In 2012, Dana announced the opening of a new aftermarket distribution center in Wuxi to increase product availability, improve delivery times, and provide additional support to its growing number of aftermarket customers.
