We currently have four technical centers under HELLA GE in APC, located in Shanghai, Nanjing, and Xiamen in China, and Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. The HELLA Shanghai Electronics (HSE) Technical Center, the biggest of the four, has a rich pool of expertise and know-how in the design and development of body electronics and mechanical components. As renowned system suppliers, the technical centers in Shanghai and Ho Chi Minh City have inherited German-originated design concepts for Body Control Modules (BCM) that perfectly fit vehicles in China with consistent quality and competitive cost. In addition, customers have access to our localized services covering everything from system requirement analysis through to system architecture design, detailed product design, testing and validation, system integration and on-vehicle testing. With its success in the development of sensors and actuators, HSE has become a globally recognized leader in this particular technology and market segment.  In the area of Electronic Power Steering (EPS), our Shanghai center boasts the most compact Electronic Control Units (ECU) and the most precise sensors on the market, built with the CIPOS technology. Our center in Nanjing is dedicated to the development of Energy Management Systems (EMS) and Driving Assistance System (DAS). The center in Xiamen focuses on design and development of relays for HELLA's global operations and the work to match, apply and design sensors and actuators to the needs of the customer's site.

These four technical centers always continue moving forward to help foster an energy-efficient, environmentally-friendly and safety-oriented future for the automobile industry.
