American Axle & Manufacturing Holdings Inc. (AAM) has expanded its existing joint venture (JV) with Hefei Automobile Axle Co., Ltd. (HAAC), a subsidiary of the JAC Group (Anhui Jianghuai Automotive Group Co., Ltd.), to include 100% of HAAC’s light commercial axle business. Hefei AAM Automotive Driveline & Chassis System Co., Ltd. currently supplies rear beam axles, rear drive modules, power transfer units, and suspension corners for Chinese independent brand passenger cars, SUVs, and MPVs. By adding the light- and medium-duty commercial axle business, this expanded JV will supply front and rear beam axles to several Chinese light-truck manufacturers, including JAC and BAIC Foton. Subject to regulatory approval in China, the expanded joint venture is expected to commence operations in December 2011.
