The ground breaking for FAW‘s headquarters and first production facilities on July 15, 1953 was an historic and exciting time in China’s history. The company‘s first medium duty truck, the model CA10, became the first car made in china.
The period from the start of production in 1956 until the end of 1978 was a critical growth and development period for FAW.
Plans were initiated in 1979 for a complete redesign of FAW's prominent CA10/30 medium truck. In the midst of the development phase, FAW in 1983 instigated a significant plant modernization campaign to update FAW and match the revolutionary new truck with a modern production facility. During the 1983-88 period, the company cemented its new policies of moving the corporation away from the priorities of a traditional state enterprise to that of a modern profit-driven organization.
The period between 1988 and 2001 witnessed a renewed focus on enlarging the company‘s automotive offerings. The company created two separate automotive concerns, that being the FAW Passenger Car Company and FAW-Volkswagen Automobile Co., Ltd. This climax of municipal bus, luxury tourist coach, custom bus chassis, and light, medium, and heavy truck manufacturing, combined with an extensive portfolio of proprietary and jointly-produced automobiles, firmly solidified the position of FAW Group as a top world player. Additional cooperation overseas with automotive suppliers and manufacturers, and the expansion of FAW’s overseas sales organization, both led to the creation of many significant joint venture companies between FAW Group and overseas partners. Now exporting complete vehicles, CKD/SKD vehicle kits, and oem/aftermarket parts to more than 70 countries, FAW had successfully transformed itself from a famous domestic vehicle manufacturer to a formidable participant in the global automotive arena.From 2000 unitl present , faw have corporation with volkvagen , toyota , mazda and successes to build its own FAW brand with good quality and advantage technology, until 2013, FAW sales more than 3 million units around the world and continue the leader position as Chinese car manufacture.
