Asia’s most practical applications-focused lightweight vehicle congress will arrive in Shanghai on Mar 26, 2015 for its annual two-day run. The Global Automotive Lightweight Materials (GALM) Asia 2015 will be sponsored by Jebsen Industrial’s Automotive Technik as part of the business’s commitment to steering China towards low emissions, environmentally friendly cars. 


According to GALM organisers, China is now the largest automotive market in the world, having surpassed the USA in 2009. In 2014, Chinese car buyers bought 2.7 million more vehicles than their American counterparts. Jebsen Automotive Technik believes that this, coupled with the Chinese government’s push to lower the country’s environmental footprint, offers local industry players tremendous growth opportunities.


GALM Asia is the Shanghai installation of the world's most practical lightweight vehicle series. It has sister shows in London, UK and Detroit, USA. Its aim is to provide the practical data needed to help automotive OEMs select the materials and manufacturing technologies needed to enable the global production of carbon emission compliant, lightweight vehicles in China, Japan, India and Korea. Its visitorship on average, includes 35% automotive OEMs, making it the perfect platform for Jebsen Automotive Technik to connect with its key customer segment.
