Our joint venture with Japan Vilene Company (JVC) in Chengdu, Freudenberg Vilene Filter (Chengdu) Co. Ltd., celebrated its 10th anniversary. To some of you, the Chengdu-based company is probably better known by its internal acronym FVFX. The plant manufactures cabin air filters. Chengdu is located in the Xindu District and is home to more than 30 automakers, including FAW-Volkswagen, FAW-Toyota, Volvo, Geely Lynk & Co. and Shenlong, a large number of which we supply.
"The rapid development of Chengdu as a hub for the automotive industry is proof that we made the right strategic decision when we located the joint venture in this area ten years ago", stated Mr. Zhu Yuexin, General Manager of FVFX.
