On December 18th 2017, the engine GB17GPV, first result of the cooperation between DUCAR and MITSUBISHI, rolled off the production line. Mr. Shibata, the general manager of MITSUBISHI, led seniors and managers to DUCAR to witness this historical moment of strategic cooperation.
Witnessing history – celebrating the first engine
On the occasion of the celebration for the production of the first engine, Mr. Xiong Xiaohua, CEO of DUCAR, said: “MITSUBISHI has been an internationally known manufacturer for over 140 years. Its brand is strong, long-lasting and reliable. I believe that MITSUBISHI corporate culture will definitely be an exceptional asset in the development of DUCAR. The strength of DUCAR lies in a special attention to the client, in the purpose of creating value for the client, and in the extremely sharp and quick response of our team. These are the reasons why I believe that this cooperation will be very successful.” On the other hand, Mr. Shibata, the general manager of Mitsubishi, said: “This is nothing but the first step, there are still many goals that we want to achieve in the future. It is my hope that MITSUBISHI and DUCAR grow together, and that we manage to develop several new products”.
The DUCAR team has worked very hard on this cooperation and is very proud of the production of this first engine. We will strive to constantly improve out products and our service, for an even better cooperation with the MITSUBISHI group.
Looking back – a year-and-a-half long “love affair”
A year and a half after the beginning of the cooperation between MITSUBISHI and DUCAR, which started in April 2016, the first engine has finally seen the light. This is only the beginning. Mr. Shibata, the general manager of MITSUBISHI, decided to cooperate with DUCAR after visiting many Chongqing manufacturers. He has been very positively impressed by the group and hasn’t regret his decision.
This is the second time that the CEO of DUCAR, Mr. Xiong Xiaohua, and the quality director, Mr. Hunter, cooperate with MITSUBISHI. Their first cooperation dates back to 1996, when Mr. Xiong XiaoHua, as the technical manager of B&S, led the team to collaborate with Mitsubishi.
The quality director of DUCAR, Mr. Hunter, the IQC manager You ZhongHong and the quality manager Ma JianHua have also been pivotal for the success of the MITSUBISHI project.
The creation of the engine GB17GPV is certainly a successful moment for the cooperation between DUCAR and MITSUBISHI, but it’s only the starting point. The two teams look forward to a long period of close cooperation, for a brilliant future.
