International Automotive Components and Feltex Automotive Establish Joint Venture in South Africa

International Automotive Components (IAC) announced that it has formed a joint venture with Feltex Automotive. The joint venture, IAC-Feltex Pty Limited ("IAC-Feltex") marks IAC's initial entry into the growing South African automotive region. IAC will provide design, engineering and manufacturing expertise for vehicle interior components. In addition to product and process expertise, Feltex brings experience from successfully operating in South Africa since 1937. The IAC-Feltex JV will be located in the East London IDZ Automotive Supplier Park. The joint venture will initially support current production requirements for Ford, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota and Volkswagen South Africa operations and is positioned to support additional business opportunities. Also, this facility will support global vehicle programs, such as the Mercedes C-Class, for which IAC will supply the interior garnish trim, flooring system, trunk trim and exterior wheel arch liners.

IAC Group North America, Inc. Opens Chongqing Facility to Support Continued Business Growth in China

IAC Group North America, Inc. celebrated the opening of its 10th and newest manufacturing facility in China, in the Southwest city of Chongqing. The new facility marks yet another milestone in IAC's continued growth in Asia and further underscores Chongqing's reputation as an emerging automotive hub. IAC Chongqing also marks the company's first wholly-owned facility in the country since it began operations there more than six years ago. IAC's rapid expansion in the Asia-Pacific region continues to be a priority as the company continues to support its growing global customer base. The new operation marks the company's second manufacturing location in Chongqing, but will consolidate both locations, growing the total number of IAC manufacturing facilities in Asia to 17, supported by six technical and engineering centers. The new facility supplies both the Ford Kuga and Ford Mondeo door panel and floor console assemblies, along with instrument panels, cockpits modules, finish trim panels and ducts for the Ford Mondeo. Additionally, IAC Chongqing supplies door panel assemblies, glove boxes and instrument panels for the Volvo S80L and will begin manufacturing instrument panel trim components for a new Suzuki model later this year. The Chongqing facility is a greenfield operation and employs approximately 275 associates in a variety of positions. The 10,400 square meter plant employs world-class manufacturing processes consistent with IAC's global manufacturing and assembly footprint. This new facility, in support of IAC's customers, was designed and prepared for production in approximately 20 months, quickly becoming an industry benchmark for delivering excellent manufacturing quality, flexibility and service to customers in the region. The Chongqing facility is the first in Asia to introduce FastKast(TM), IAC's proprietary A-surface material manufacturing process. FastKast(TM) incorporates thermoplastic polyolefin and polyvinyl chloride resins in conjunction with IAC's advanced process development, which enhances product quality, improved tactile feel and aesthetics on instrument panels and other interior trim components. Late last year, FastKast(TM) debuted in support of Ford business at IAC's manufacturing site in Bals, Romania. Additional capabilities in Chongqing include seamless airbag scoring, foaming, roll-coating, lamination, various welding techniques, punch trimming, vacuum forming and cut and sew. The facility is also equipped with a full test lab capable of airbag deployment validation testing, material and environmental testing and precision Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) data collection. IAC's presence in the Asia-Pacific region has expanded to include design and technical facilities and joint ventures in key markets including China, Korea, Japan, Malaysia and Thailand. This network supports a broad customer base that includes multinational and domestic OEMs around the world. IAC's Asian headquarters are located in Shanghai.
