Autoneum is expanding its production capacities in Asia with two new plants in Changchun in the Chinese province of Jilin and in Pune in Western India.

Autoneum already supplies both international and local vehicle manufacturers in Asia with multifunctional lightweight components for noise and heat protection and the new plants will increase its proximity to customers in these important production centres.

Jilin province is one of Asia’s largest car production centres and the new Changchun plant will help to increase market share with European, Japanese and Chinese car manufacturers, with products for both light and commercial vehicles in this region. Construction of the building has already begun and is progressing according to plan. The project is supported by the local authorities in China and from the end of 2024 it will ramp up production, with the first samples for already awarded business for inner dashes, interior floor insulators and other NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) components.

Autoneum currently operates at two locations in India, in Behror near New Delhi in the north and a joint venture plant in Chennai in the south. Orders have already been received for components from the new plant in Pune which will begin manufacturing carpet systems, interior trim, wheelhouse outer liners, e-motor covers and other noise protection components in the second quarter of 2024. The plant will supply international as well as local car manufacturers from western India, with a particular focus on Indian and Korean vehicle manufacturers.

“With our two new production facilities in China and India we can meet the growing demand from car manufacturers in Asia for our lightweight and multifunctional components,” said Andreas Kolf, head of Autoneum Asia. “Asia is an important growth market for the automotive industry and therefore for Autoneum.”
