Federal-Mogul invests in new sealing facility

Federal-Mogul has announced plans to relocate its sealing facility from its existing site in Nanchang, China, to a new development in the same area.

Located in the Nanchang Economic and Technological Development Zone, the new site offers triple the available space and will enable the company to meet increasing demand from OEMs for high-performance sealing products.

“China is an important market and manufacturing base for Federal-Mogul. Operation of the new Nanchang facility provides a complete technology portfolio and significantly increases capacity in line with our global business focus,” said Andrea Pappagallo, general manager at Federal-Mogul.

“The investment in this site demonstrates our confidence in the Chinese market, and ambition to achieve sustained growth in the country. For their role in enabling a successful relocation process, we are grateful for the support from local officials at the Nanchang Economic and Technological Development Zone.”

New production lines will manufacture Federal-Mogul’s MicroTorq low-friction dynamic seal, which aims to meet manufacturers’ demands to minimize power loss. The Tier 1 supplier’s MicroTorq technology complements the Nanchang site’s range of gaskets and sealing products, as well as Nimbus heat shields and Unipiston bonded clutch piston products.

“The previous sealing facility in Nanchang marked the first manufacturing investment for Federal-Mogul in China,” explained Felix Cheng, general manager at Federal-Mogul China and Korea.

“This new site is an important addition to our China and Asia business. The newly installed technology and capacity paves the way for stronger growth of our business in this dynamic market.”

Investment in the new plant, including new equipment, production lines and technologies, ensures a significant capacity increase for gasket products, including heavy-duty diesel engine gaskets to meet future production demands.
