SHENYANG, China—French automotive and rubber parts supplier Hutchinson is ramping up its recently opened plant in Shenyang Dadong, the company has announced.
The facility has been operational since July, as the company produced the first off-tool body sealing system parts for BMW. Since October, the plant has also housed large-scale production for fluid management systems, said Hutchinson.
The facility supplies fuel systems for two major customers: BMW and Kautex.
Most recently, in January, the site's foam and converting division, which is part of Hutchinson's precision sealing systems business began operations. This unit will cover operations for a "BMW project to industrialize twinsheet thermoforming," the French supplier said.
