SG Automotive Group Co Ltd, officially Liaoning Shuguang Automotive Group, Ltd, is a vehicle and component manufacturer headquartered in the northeastern Chinese city of Dandong, Liaoning.[2] The company makes buses,[3] light trucks, semi-trailer trucks, SUVs[4] and automotive components.[3] Auto parts made by SG are used by other Chinese car makers including Brilliance Auto, Chery, and JAC Motors.[5]

Light trucks and buses are sold under the Huanghai brand name.[6] Some SUVs sold under this brand may utilize Mitsubishi powerplants as of 2011.[7] The company makes fleet sales, and some products are purchased by the Chinese State.[8]

History[edit]

SG was founded in Liaoning in 1984 with 70,000 yuan as a manufacturer of axles for off-road vehicles.[9]

In August 2012 SG agreed to acquire a 56.19% stake in a Dandong-based special vehicle company from a Liaoning-based group company, for RMB 80.90 million.[10]

SG has component manufacturing facilities in Wuhu, Anhui, and Shenyang, Liaoning.[5] Other facilities include a bus-making factory in Changzhou, Changzhou Changjiang Bus, which became operational in early 2010[11] and a location-unknown component-making facility 113,220 square meters in size that should have become operational in late 2012.[12]
