After many months of preparation and lengthy negotiations, it’s finally happened: CDA and Shanghai Yousi Machinery & Facilities Co. Ltd., in joint venture, have opened a new production site in China. Robin Hardt, CDA’s Quality Manager, presided over the official launch that took place during the third week of November. The local staff has been given intensive training from CDA experts.
A particular challenge of entering into this new market was the acquisition of the necessary copy license. This is solely assigned by the government and was a mandatory requirement for CDA to do business in China. We are very pleased that CDA-YOUSI – the name of the new joint venture – is one of only 12 companies officially entitled to reproduce data cards in China.
In Shanghai the production processes will be analogous to those followed in Germany. In the first step, the focus will lie on the duplication of navigation data on flash storage. In order to guarantee the best product quality also in Asia, CDA-YOUSI is committed to buying exclusively from suppliers that have been classified by CDA as absolutely reliable. In order to increase its presence in China step by step, talks with major automobile manufacturers are currently taking place. The first series production is planned for early 2016.
CDA-YOUSI production capacity:
1st step: 262,500 pieces, available at opening
2nd step: increase of 100,000 over step 1
3rd step: increase of 500,000 over step 1
Our new business address in China:
CDA-YOUSI Information Technology (Shanghai) Co.,Ltd.
Building 1, No. 399 Chuanqiao Rd, Yodo Office Park, Pudong District, Shanghai
