Great Wall Motor Company Limited (GWM) is a privately owned automaker in China with headquarters in Baoding. With revenues of $1.2 billion and products sold in more than 120 countries, GWM was China’s first private automobile enterprise listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. The company has more than 30 subsidiaries and over 22,000 employees.
To diversify into the international market, GWM needed to establish an enterprise-wide compliance platform capable of ensuring adherence to eco-design standards and enhanced product quality.
GWM adopted Dassault Systèmes’ ENOVIA Materials Compliance Central (MCC) solution to meet European Union environmental regulations and CATIA to enhance design quality.
Using DS PLM solutions, GWM was granted the EU accreditation certificate for four of its models in 2009 and became the first Chinese brand to be officially accredited by the EU.
