ContiTech said an order from Qoros was the clinching factor in its decision to expand R&D competencies in Asia. Shown is the Qoros 3 compact sedan slated to go on sale later in 2013.

ContiTech will employ 30 engineers by year's end at a recently opened R&D center in Changshu, Jiangsu Province, about 100 km (60 mi) from Shanghai. The product focus will be vehicle mounting and vibration control. Work will be conducted in close collaboration with customers such as Geely, Great Wall, General Motors, Shanghai Volkswagen, and Qoros. The supplier said an order from Qoros was the clinching factor in its decision to expand R&D competencies in Asia. In 2010, the ContiTech Vibration Control business unit won a bid to collaborate with the automaker on engine mounts in the development of the central platform for assembly for Qoros's first production model. ContiTech has invested about €8 million in the R&D center. Headquartered in Shanghai, Qoros is an equal partnership between China's Chery Automobile and the global industrial holding company Israel Corp. Its first product, the Qoros 3 compact sedan, is slated to go on sale later this year.
