At FJ Industries’ plant in Ningbo, China, serial production has now started up on 2 new iron cast and machined components for UK’s largest OEM automotive business.
Development of the project began early in Q3, 2014 and now finally end of Q1, 2015 we have started to ramp up in our production. The characteristics of the 2 components are quite different to one another. One part – a cast inlet cone for the catalytic converter is weighing 2 kg while the other part, a small engine bracket, is weighing only a few hundred grams.
When peaking in 2017/2018 it is expected that the total volume of the 2 components will reach around 300,000 pcs. per year.
