Denso’s new China operation to build common rail systems

Denso Corp. said that it had established a wholly owned company, Denso (Changzhou) Fuel Injection System Co., Ltd., in Changzhou, Jiangsu, China, to produce common rail systems for diesel vehicles. Construction on the plan will begin in October and be completed in August 2008. Production is slated to begin in July 2009.

“We believe that the demand for common rail systems will grow as China moves towards stricter exhaust emission regulations,” said Hiromi Tokuda, senior managing director in charge of Denso’s Powertrain Control Systems and Electronic Systems Business Groups.

Denso currently produces common rail systems in Japan, Hungary, and Thailand.
