China's leading automotive glass is making strides in the global OEM market

2007-01-01

Atlas Copco's compressors have been a reliable partner for Fuyao Glass Industry Co., Ltd.'s continuous expansion during the past 16 years

While the glass industry in general is currently in a period of downturn, by contrast the market for automotive glass is growing profitably. This is mainly due to the global expansion of the auto industry and in particular, growth in the China market. 

Headquartered in Fuqing City in Southern China's Fujian Province, Fuyao Group was formed in 1995 and today the Group has 6 automotive glass production bases across China as well as 4 modern float glass production bases. This production is also supported by a complete sales network across the country and today the Group employs 8000 people.

For the complete OEM car sets in China, Fuyao supplies well-known automobile brands including Shanghai GM Buick; Guangzhou Honda, FAW Audi, FAW Volkswagen Jetta, etc., occupying more than half of the Chinese OEM market share. For the automotive replacement glass (ARG) markets in China, Fuyao Group has a large after market service network of over 300 chain outlets across the country, and occupies over 40% of the ARG market share.

“All of this success in the industry could not be achieved without Fuyao's win-win cooperation with its vendors. Among them Atlas Copco is a key compressor provider,” said Mr. Bai.  He explained that when choosing vendors, Fuyao Group usually first considers product quality and service, other than price. 

Since the 1990s, the compressors from Atlas Copco have provided gas energy for the numerous pneumatic equipments along the product lines, enabling them to achieve a very high level of automation and mechanization. Atlas Copco's compressors have never stopped the product lines, an occurrence which would cause tremendous loss for a glass plant.
