Shanghai is the location of Eaton's latest technical center in China. The new $3.3 million Vehicle Group Asia Pacific Technical Center will develop vehicle powertrain solutions for the Chinese and regional markets, according to the company. Featuring seven "major" labs, the 1200-m² (13,000-ft²) facility will further strengthen Eaton's local testing and development resources pertaining to new engine platforms. The new facility is Eaton's sixth R&D and engineering center in China, including a global corporate research and technology center in Shanghai. The company also has engaged Chinese universities and research institutes for R&D projects and to help cultivate local talent. Eaton began its operations in China in 1993 with a manufacturing facility. Since then it has expanded its presence to include 28 manufacturing facilities and more than 18,000 employees. Eaton has set a sales target of $2 billion in China for 2015.
