Makers in the city are leveraging convenient access to key components and skilled personnel to develop high-end designs.
Several locational advantages keep the power generator industry in Fu’an strong. Production in this county-level city of Fujian province has an annual growth of about 20 percent.
An important factor sustaining the development of the sector is the presence of support industries within the area. Manufacturers generate cost savings from sourcing locally, which they transfer to clients via competitive prices.
Alternators, for instance, are available from approximately 700 enterprises. Of these suppliers, 20 are large factories with an annual revenue exceeding $15 million. Their products typically comply with the requirements of North America and the EU. CE, GS and TÜV marks on such equipment are common.
Power generator suppliers in Fu’an also benefit from convenient access to skilled workers and technical experts.
Within Fujian are several academic and research institutions, including Fuzhou University, which collaborate with makers on technology development. Intertek, Bureau Veritas and other independent testing centers are present as well.
Companies are now leveraging these advantages to move upmarket and build strong brands. In doing so, they hope to gain better margins and improve long-term competitiveness.
Many are collaborating with clients, suppliers, universities and research institutes to develop models with more safety features. Lower noise and exhaust emission levels are also key targets.
