SAIC opens Detroit engineering, purchasing center

Shanghai Automotive Industry Corp., China's largest automaker and a joint-venture partner of General Motors, has opened an engineering and purchasing center in suburban Detroit.

The center eventually will employ 100 people and focus on purchasing, logistics, technology and engineering, according to a statement from the company's U.S. subsidiary, Shanghai Automotive Industries Corp. USA.

The office will coordinate procurement among 150 suppliers in North America and manage the import and export of components. Its engineers will help design and develop auto parts.

The three-story building covers 2,800 square meters.

Last year, SAIC's joint ventures with General Motors and Volkswagen AG sold more than 4 million vehicles in China.

"SAIC USA will enhance the operation of localization in the recruitment of professional, technical and management personnel and actively expand economic and trade activities," said SAIC Chairman Hu Maoyuan. "SAIC USA will continue healthy growth in this market."
