The superior success of the manufacturer, which adopts local working standards, in the USA.
Winning the “American Factory” award contest of Netflix (NFLX), he took Oscar to the Best Documentary category. The film, which is supported by Barack and Michelle Obamas, addresses the problems experienced by China’s Fuyao Glass Industry Group during working hours in the USA.
The movie was shown last fall. It attracted the attention of Chinese manufacturers. Companies preferred some approaches to gain their customers.
Established the most comprehensive bus factory in North America in Lancaster. Acronym of “Build Your Dreams”, BYD has rapidly expanded its footprint, and now has a strong workforce with a six-member staff in 2013. Unlike Fuyao, who resisted unionization efforts in Ohio, BYD created about 800 union jobs.
Managing North American operations BYD Motors President Stella Li said, “If we have the largest market here, we think we should contribute to society. We have to do like the best international companies. We have a very close relationship with the union. We also believe that their resources can help us. ” said.
This approach has proved a winning formula for BYD so far. The company currently operates 423 electric buses in the U.S. and counts Facebook (FB), Stanford University, and regional transit systems as some of its big name customers. Last fall, it received 130 bus orders from the Los Angeles Department of Transportation, the largest battery powered electric buses in US history.
BYD’s success in electric buses. Because the company leaves the job it builds on batteries and affordable electric vehicles for consumers. Today, the Shenzhen-based company is the second largest EV maker behind Tesla, founded by Wang Chuanfu led by government researcher.
Li said that local climate legislation, which requires cleaner public transport, has helped BYD grow in the US, especially California.
This success did not protect BYD from critics, despite growing doubts about how Chinese companies operate in the U.S.
Last year, Congress took steps to ban federal funds to purchase Chinese buses and wagons under the National Defense Authorization Act due to national security concerns. This puts BYD and US-based employees in the crosshairs of Washington.
Supporters of the movement, John Garamendi (D-CA), accused BYD of being part of the Chinese government’s “strategic and tactical plan to master the rail and transit industry.” “

Li said the move was encouraged by American opponents.
Li “Unfortunately, we are at the moment of the China-US trade tension. People are nervous. They only support without understanding what they accept on this invoice. “He said his thought.
The legislation is not intended to take effect for two years.
Meanwhile, BYD, market research and consulting firm Prescient & Strategic Intelligence Pvt.
The Lancaster plant aims to produce more than 30 buses per month, while skyrail in the US is turning to using solar and battery technology.
“Long-term, 50 years, you’re looking back – such temporary political issues don’t take much time,” said Li. “This does not affect our business much,” he said.
