AFC-Holcroft Signs Two New Partners in China

February, 2012: AFC-Holcroft is pleased to announce an addition of two new partners in China: G-Wang Precision Auto Parts Company Ltd. in Jiangshan, Zhenjiang Province, and Jilin Plate Heat Treating Company Ltd. in Changchun, Jilin Province in the northeast of China.

G-Wang Precision Auto Parts Company Ltd. is a member of the San Yung Group Taiwan, who specializes in continuous mesh belt type atmosphere furnaces. G-Wang Precision Auto Parts Company Ltd. will focus exclusively on AFC-Holcroft Aluminum Brazing (CAAB®) technology for China and South East Asia. Their new 12,000 square meter facility is dedicated to the manufacturing of continuous furnaces for the aluminum brazing and aluminum process systems. San Yung Group is one of the largest furnace manufacturers in Asia, with sales worldwide, primarily to the fastener industry.

Jilin Plate Heat Treating Company, Ltd. specializes in pusher carburizing furnaces, mainly for customers requiring large-scale production, such as automotive, railroad and bearing industries. The company history spans over 50 years, and incorporates professional design and development teams into a single source supply for technical consultation, workshop design, equipment design, manufacturing, installation, debugging, service and staff training. Jilin Plate Heat Treating Company Ltd. holds an ISO2000 International Quality System Certificate.

The partnership with Jilin Plate Heat Treating Company rekindles a relationship originally formed in the 1980's at FAW (First Automobile Works) when Jilin Plate was a wholly owned subsidiary of China FAW Group Corporation, prior to its restructuring. Mr. Xie Fei , the present-day President of Jilin Plate and William Disler, Executive Vice President of AFC-Holcroft, worked together at FAW in the 1980's as young engineers, installing a large amount of Holcroft equipment.

The signing of these new Chinese partners brings the total to three, including longtime AFC-Holcroft partner Shanghai Powermax. Shanghai Powermax will continue to focus their efforts on marketing and manufacturing AFC-Holcroft's UBQ (Universal Batch Quench) and UBQA (Universal Batch Quench Austemper) and auxiliary equipment.

Says William Disler, Executive Vice President of AFC-Holcroft: "These changes in China represent further proof of AFC-Holcroft's ongoing commitment to global expansion and support. Not only are we focused on new regions, but we are also constantly improving our ability to service existing regions."

Janusz Kowalewski Managing Director of AFC-Holcroft Shanghai Office, has stated, "We are very pleased with our new partners and existing partner PowerMax to expand our market coverage of China and Southeast Asia. AFC-Holcroft is committed to excellence in service and looking forward to provide advanced technology with local support and manufacturing capabilities."
