Chinese Supplier Exhibition on May 19th, 2017 Dearborn, Michigan

China has become rapidly the largest automotive market in the world since surpassed US in 2009. Chinese automotive suppliers have consequently grown their design and manufacturing capabilities in the past decades. As such, many international companies, including US ones, have rushed to China, leveraging Chinese automotive suppliers for the benefit of high quality goods at a very competitive price. However, the cost of this global sourcing phenomenon for US companies is inevitable both financially and culturally.

Today, with abundant financial resources and ambition, Chinese automotive suppliers are not only focusing on their domestic market, but also aggressively entering international markets, particularly into North American region. They are looking for opportunities of investment and selling directly to US OEMs and/or Tier suppliers, opening manufacturing, setting up R&D centers and sales offices in Michigan.

To bridge the opportunities, CAAPC, DCBA, Detroit Regional Chamber and NAACEE are proudly to present this exhibition where the US OEM’s and other buying companies will meet credible Chinese suppliers of engine, chassis, interior and electronic commodities. US OEM’s and other buying parties do not have to fly thousand miles to China to implement their global sourcing strategy and can avoid the financial cost and shorten the learning curve of doing business with Chinese automotive suppliers. On the other hand, Chinese automotive suppliers can listen to their perspective customers directly and shape their entering strategy for North America market. Furthermore, other professional service companies will be on site to assist Chinese automotive suppliers for entering to North America region.

As a non-profit organization and with over 25-years of experience in serving North America automakers and OEM suppliers, Chinese American Automotive Professional Club (CAAPC) has over 150 members in the Midwest and is recently expanding to the West Coast. Many of its members have been long interwoven into the local supply chain.

This event is organized by STARTYCHE company. Specialized in international merger and acquisition, business consulting, STARTYCHE is aiming to assist more Chinese suppliers to enter US market.
