On-the-Ground Experience

ASIMCO Technologies was the first multi-product, multi-plant automotive components supplier to be established by international investors and companies in China. The Industrial Policy which China implemented in 1994 named automotive as one of the country’s seven pillar industries. In order to encourage investment in China’s auto components sector, China said, as part of its new policy,  that foreign investors in China’s automotive components sector could have majority ownership, the only industry where this was permitted at the time.


Founded by Jack Perkowski in February 1994, ASIMCO Technologies pioneered China’s auto supply industry as the first industry consolidator and a leading independent automotive components company in China with sales in excess of $650 million. Sold to Bain Capital in 2010.
