GWM signs strategic cooperation agreement with Eaton
On April 16, Eaton, a world leading power management company, delivered "Great Wall Technology Day" under the theme of "Outstanding Power Efficient Solution". During the activity, the two sides signed a strategic cooperation agreement. Under the agreement, the two sides will carry out strategic cooperation in technical fields such as engine valve mechanism, torque control products, supercharger, and fuel evaporation and emission control. People present at the activity were senior executives from both sides such as GWM Chairman Wei Jianjun and Eaton Asia-Pacific President Curt Hutchins.
In the activity, Eaton presented its innovative achievements such as electric safety and green switch solution, advanced system solution and lean solution in vehicle production, as well as its ELSD technology and VVL technology specific to deluxe vehicles.
Hutchins said, "I am deeply impressed by GWM's focus strategy in recent years, and the two sides have carried out effective cooperation in fields such as chassis and engine. After signing the agreement, the two sides will further deepen the discussion about technical exchange and cooperation. I believe they will have more cooperation opportunities in fields such as vehicle performance enhancement, vehicle safety, fuel economy, hydraulic and electric technologies, and they will provide better products to Chinese customers."
According to sources, GWM has cooperated with Eaton in MLD and mass-manufactured it on Great Wall H3, Great Wall H5 and Wingle pickups. Also, the two sides have begun R & D cooperation in fields such as ELSD, intake/exhaust valves and roller rocker.
Wei said GWM's strategy is focusing on SUV and the products range from the mini SUV to large SUV. Due to China's vast territory, complex road and climatic conditions, both large and mini SUVs need cross-country function. GWM hopes that Eaton will provide strong technical support and work with GWM in more technical fields through communication and exchange.
