The Holland Group has agreed to license air suspension and landing gear technology to China. Agreements with Zhenjiang Boahua Semi-Trailer for landing gear and the Beijing Corpco Technology Development Co Ltd for air suspension products will allow the Chinese heavy-duty transportation industry to adapt Holland products for heavy trucks, trailers, buses, and motorcoaches.
Jeffrey Talaga, managing director — Holland China, will oversee the licensee agreements, which call for stringent enforcement of Holland's quality requirements. Plans call for the manufacture of 10,000 front and rear air-suspension pieces for use within China and an undisclosed number of landing gear to be produced for China and other Pacific Rim nations.
Beijing Corpco Technology Development will produce from its manufacturing operations in Baotou, Inner Mongolia. Zhenjiang Baohua Semi-Trailer has manufacturing and distribution facilities in Jiangsu province near Nanjing.
