Default FAW Introduction

China FAW Group Corporation, commonly referred to as FAW due to its original name of First Automotive Works, broke ground for its first factory on July 15, 1953. Since then, FAW has been at the forefront of promoting China¡¯s automobile industry. Although FAW began life solely as a truck producer, it later expanded into the light-duty truck and car sector. In 1991, working in partnership with Volkswagen AG, FAW created a new state-of-the-art production facility with a yearly production capacity in excess of 150,000 units. In 2002, Tianjin Automobile Industry (Group) Corporation was merged into First Automobile Group, and began joint venture production with Toyota Motor Corporation. At present, FAW¡¯s current production strategies put a heavier emphasis on the production of cars while maintaining our dominant position in the truck industry.
FAW has 27 wholly owned subsidiaries and controlling interest in 20 partially owned subsidiaries. Among these are FAW Jiefang Automobile Co., Ltd. and FAWER Automobile Parts Co., Ltd, which are wholly owned subsidiaries;Faw Car Co., Ltd. ,Tianjin FAW Xiali Automobile Co., Ltd. and Changchun FAW Sihuan Automobile Co., Ltd., whose shares are traded on the stock exchange, and FAW Volkswagen Automobile Co., Ltd. and Tianjin FAW Toyota Motor Co., Ltd., and etc which are Sino-foreign joint ventures. FAW¡¯s production bases are evenly distributed in Northeastern China, Northern China and East of Shangdong Province ,and Southwestern China. FAW also has an advanced technology center for the research and development of new products, technology, and materials in China. The company¡¯s total assets are valued at 102.4 billion Yuan (US $ 12.4 billion) with over 132,400 employees.
FAW has expanded its product line into 6 different categories of vehicles including light, medium, and heavy-duty trucks, cars, buses, and mini-vehicles with total sales in excess of 7 million vehicles. FAW has been able to maintain its leading domestic market position while expanding into new international markets, executing a carefully planned strategy to build a comprehensive global organization.
In order to work towards our dream to ¡°let every Chinese family own a car,¡± we hold to our core value of ¡°first automobile, first partner¡± and our management concept of ¡°custom first¡±. Currently, FAW employees are diligently working to build a new FAW, whose target is to be managed digitally, to became an auto-industry group with a capacity of one million units, and competent in the international market.

New chief in FAW.

December 29– Chinese authorities have appointed a new general manager named Xu Jiangong for First Automobile Works, the company announced on Wednesday.

The new leader, 54, had worked many years for FAW and served as deputy general before entering politics in 2003. He was Communist party boss for the city of Jilin before chosen as general manager for FAW.

Xu’s predecessor, Zhu Yanfeng, has assumed the office of lieutenant governor of northeast China's Jilin Province after 24 years working for FAW.

Zhu became general manager of FAW in 1999. During his tenure, FAW acquired Tianjin Xiali Auto Company and set up several joint ventures with global auto giants such as VW, Toyota and Mazda.

Hi FAW Jiefang,
Could you tell us something about the Hongta Auto and Baolong Auto subsidiaries and their products?
Also would be interested to know where the little Jiaxing or Jinn, aka Happy Messenger or Happy Envoy, is being produced currently.
