Jatco begins CVT production in Zhangjiagang
Jatco is starting full-fledged production of continuously variable transmissions (CVTs) at its second production plant in China.
An opening ceremony was held at the new plant, which is located in the Economic and Technological Development Zone of Zhangjiagang City, Jiangsu Province, on Friday, November 8.
Jatco Suzhou was established in July 2018 as the second plant in China following the establishment of Jatco Guangzhou Automatic Transmission in 2007. This plant was built to accommodate the further growth in CVT demand accompanying the expansion of China's automobile market, and it has succeeded in starting volume production in the short period of just one year after its establishment.
Its location offers superb logistics, as it is close to the large international trading port facilities of both Shanghai and Zhangjiagang, making it an excellent place for shipping not only within China, but also to overseas sites such as Japan.
