The company will be headquartered in Shanghai with global engineering, development and customer centers in the United States, Europe, China, Japan and India. It will have more than 90 plants located across China, Europe and North America.

The joint venture will be incorporated in the new Shanghai Free Trade Zone and will be the largest manufacturing enterprise to be established in the zone.
