SAF-Holland S.A. has expanded its presence in the world’s third-largest market through the acquisition of Austin-Westran’s China-based landing gear product line and plant.

“Based on discussions with existing and future customers, we are increasing our presence in the Chinese market with a wholly owned manufacturing footprint to deliver our broad range of market-leading technology,” said Rudi Ludwig, CEO of SAF-Holland S.A. “We aim to be the first choice partner of major truck and trailer manufacturers in China, and we are already in discussions with major OEMs to this effect.”

Austin-Westran’s manufacturing plant in Xiamen, China has an annual production capacity of about 150,000 pairs, SAF-Holland said. Austin-Westran will continue its U.S.-based product lines.
