Car Bumper Manufacturers in China

China has begun to emerge as the economic force to reckon with in the global market. Its billion strong population has made it possible to break through almost all the markets, and these include the car bumper market. It seems that there is no dearth to car bumper manufacturers in China. Below is a list of some of the more visible Chinese manufacturers who have made their presence felt online, plus an overview of their companies.

Xiamen Kingtom Rubber-Plastic Co., Ltd. Is established and located in the province of Xiamen. This ISO 9001 certified company is 400-strong with 60 production lines. They are specialized in rubber and plastic parts for sanitation, automobiles (which includes car bumpers) and electrical appliances. Their monthly capacity is around 400 tons finished items, so items can be delivered in less than a week. Their vision is to turn their company into a large scale company operating for the international market.

Changshu Jianan FRP Products Co., Ltd. specializes in FRP (or fiber reinforced plastic) technology. They have a comprehensive range of products: from the automobile bumper to the motorcycle casing to the cable jacket, they all have it. Although they have a much lesser number of employees – 120 – they do have a vast factory area of over 12,000 square meters, and their annual production capacity is 10,000 MT. Also, the proximity of their location makes it convenient for them to transport their deliveries on time. They mostly cater to the international market, with their products reaching as far as UK, Australia and America. Their annual sales are US $2,200,000 and their main buyers are the Hitachi Medical Corporation and the Import Trenz, among others.

The Haiyan Zhenda Automobile Fittings Factory, established in 1976, has been a leading manufacturer of auto parts, including brake lining, rubber parts such as the car bumper, and engine bolts. They are an OEM supplier to major vehicle assemblers, and they are vouched for by their ISO 9001 and TS-16949 certifications. It is no wonder then that their sales top US $10,000,000 annually and that half of the products they make find their way throughout the world.

The L&C Auto Parts is relatively young compared to the abovementioned. It was established only in 19990, although they have been in fact steadily growing over the years. Their annual sales tip $ 8,000,000. Their main products include the car bumper, the guard rail, the solenoid, the armature, the exhaust manifold, et al. Their two main factories specialize in producing hardware car parts for assembly and creating starters and armatures, respectively. They place great stock in the quality of their products as evidenced by the investment they put in their R&D and QC departments.

The Anhui Technology is a large trading company that supplies mostly the US and European markets. They have a variety of product offerings, from appliances to chemicals to machinery. This contributed to their export volume of $524, 000,000 last year. Their branch, the Anhui Technology Auto Parts & Accessories, offers automotive break parts, automotive suspension parts and accessories (the car bumper being one of these) and automotive battery terminal/fittings.

The Shanghai Tengkun Consulting Co., Ltd. offer a broad range of products, from auto spare parts (like the car bumper, car mirror, or car tire) to furnishing parts and telecommunication equipment. Their products have proven to be a hit in the Japanese, European and North American markets. They are engaged in the export and import service, and also have a Commission agent for their documentation works agency and inspection agency.

And to think that this is only a drop in the sea that is the car bumper business, and the ocean that is the automobile industry. The plethora of car bumper choices is a boon for consumers who wan the best value their money can buy.

Should I Buy My Car Audio Product At Ebay?

Car audio at Ebay? Yes, you can get a good car audio system at Ebay. All you need to do is to log on to the net and sign-in at Ebay. This will not only save your fuel but also your time. So what is actually included at eBay under car audio? Let’s take a peep in.

Sub-categories under car audio at eBay

The various categories included at eBay under car audio are…

o Car alarms and security

o Car amplifier

o Car audio in-dash units

o Car CD changers

o Car speaker and speaker systems

o Car subwoofers and enclosures

o Car video and navigation

o Installation products

o Parts and accessories

o Signal processors

o 12-volt portable appliances

There are, however, several issues you’d have to bear in mind if you intend to buy your car audio system or accessories at Ebay…

1) You run a huge risk. eBay does not give you any guarantee on the product you’re buying. All they provide is an interface for your transaction.

Therefore, if you’re not experienced in using auction sites you’d be better off buying from an established car audio site.

2) You may be buying from a dissatisfied user who just wants to get rid of the stuff.

3) You cannot have any support if issues arise. You bought from another user, not an authorized outlet.

4) You’re less likely to buy the latest and best. This shouldn’t be a problem if you are more after making a bargain purchase than owning a reliable system that will serve you well.

If you do decide in spite of these and other setbacks, do yourself a favor: Research the seller and make sure you’re not buying from a crook.

My best bet for your car audio system remains a car audio dealer who has expertise, not Ebay.

Car Enthusiast Forum: A Great Way of Communication for Auto Lovers

There’s a well known saying that “Birds of a feather flock together”. In every sphere of society we find people, having common interests, creating their own groups. Be it a baseball game or getting together for a concert or a ballet class, having a common ground is important to individuals and the society itself.

Earlier the people who loved cars, got together and formed auto clubs to have discussions on the updated information on automobiles. With the advent of internet, the 21st century auto lovers have found a common platform to discuss about cars in the form of car enthusiast forums. Morgan Murphy of Mountain Brook, Birmingham, had taken advantage of this and generated a huge income. Two years back he left a comfortable white collar job and started up an online automotive community. The community focuses on just about anything on classic cars. It has lists of car shows and tells the members where to buy vintage car models or parts. His car enthusiast forum’s main revenue source is advertising and recently the site has got a $1 million investment from Jemison Investments!

In a car enthusiast forum you will get accurate technical information on different models of automobiles. You will also get a friendly and supportive forum environment, where you can discuss about many things like- auto industry news, discounts available on automobile parts and accessories, other aspects of cars, SUVs, trucks, and so on. A car enthusiast forum is the number one source for automotive discussions.

The common characteristics of a true car enthusiast forum are-

1. Knowledge: The forum staffs spend a great deal of time working on their vehicles. So, they have genuine expertise on their individual vehicle models.

2. Staff: All staffs share a common mission. So they enjoy each other’s company and work well together. They consider their colleagues as good friends. They pass their enthusiasm to other members, who eventually aspire to become staffs.

3. Events: The staffs and members arrange meetings and events like car shows, races, cruises, and such other things to share their love and enthusiasm for their cars.

4. Members: They are the greatest working force to create a successful forum. The members provide help to fellow enthusiasts and help the forum to grow.

Car Accessories Are Necessities

I don’t know if it was ever properly documented, but it is my bet that car accessories have been around since the very first car was in the hands of the first private car owner. The clich├ęs of rearview mirror dice, license plate frames, radio antenna balls or other car exterior accessories were likely not in use (mainly due to the lack of those items on the first cars), but I guarantee something was added to that first car. Maybe a seat cover, or leather wrap on the steering wheel. Any way you look at it, your car will not remain truly stock if you’re anything like all the other car owners in the world. Let’s look at the various modern options there are out there for making your car, your car.

For anyone who lives in areas of the world where it gets cold, and there are winters almost everywhere, a remote car starter is a great luxury that borders on being a necessity when the thermometer drops well below freezing. I live in Vancouver now so it is not quite as needed as when I lived in Toronto, but it can still be useful on those frigid winter mornings. When buying your remote car starter from a car accessories shop, look into practical things like how far a distance you will be away from your car when you start it (driveway/garage to doorway you’ll be standing in), who will install it, do you want a one way or two way starter (a 2 way requires a confirmation signal be sent), how will you deal with possible factory security features, and can you get replacement parts. After looking into all this, and researching the options, you’ll be ready to get yourself the right car starter, and you’ll be able to start your day in a warm car with that mug of coffee in your cup holder not going cold.

Bluetooth hands free communication devices can be great for those on the go. They can be integrated into your factory equipment over your speakers, and can even have features such as caller ID, a backup camera picture displayed on the screen, and a number of other audio and video input features. With more and more police departments enforcing laws about people talking while on cell phones, occupying their hands and driving ability, those on the go can’t really afford not to buy a Bluetooth hands free communication tool of some sort.

Another safety feature is upgrading your lighting. The usual lighting options for your next drive include fog lights, which produce a broad and close in light, to normal which are narrower but further out, to driving beam patterns which are as broad as normal headlights but extend twice as far in front of you. You can also look into High Intensity Discharge (HID) upgrades. This feature is in all the new high end cars and gives you substantially better lighting at less power consumption. Auxiliary lighting manufacturers include: Hella, PIAA, Pilot, KC Lights, and Optilux. When it comes to car accessories, upgraded lighting can be one of your best investments.
