"We are following our customer FAW/VW. The Tianjin plant will start operating during the third quarter of 2005 and our location in Changchun during the second quarter of 2006," Walter Schoepf, head of international marketing, told Automobilwoche.
That means that the supplier will then own 20 plants worldwide.
The manufacturer of headrests, armrests, center consoles and integrated child seats plans to employ around 320 staff in China.
The Amberg-based company will set up its Chinese headquarters in Tianjin, 140 kilometers south of Peking.
The supplier also will open a distribution and development center at Changchun, North China.
