We had one goal :

More technology in every drop

We wanted to create an automotive paint factory that used the latest equipment and processes to deliver a superior range of products. We wanted to create a cleaner, healthier work environment and provide our chemists with the best of the best equipment. We knew that better control, better QC and better systems would ultimately enable us to produce better products.

A greener factory

Raw materials are loaded into our tank farm and piped directly into the production equipment, limiting VOC emissions and any wastage. The innovative, multi-storey gravity feed processing systems ensure lower power consumption and further limit solvent evaporation. There’s no doubt that building such a modern facility has enabled us to apply the very latest system design to our factory. We employed the famous companies, the well-known brands and the talented minds on the planet to build us the world-renowned facility possible.


Better design, better thinking, better processes

Over 400 employees bring their A-game to the Yatu campus every day of the week. Most are in the R&D, Training and QC departments, where they apply their technical prowess to the development and quality maintenance of our products. Working closely with OEM’s and the international industry has enabled us to apply this new thinking to creating more durable, more consistent and more environmentally sustainable coatings.

A passion for precision

Mr. Feng Zhaojun, president of Yatu, is an individual who is driven by a passion for precision. Why else would one invest so heavily in ensuring that every step of the production process is so tightly controlled. From only using the highest quality pigments and raw materials, to limiting VOC emissions and the enhancing eco-friendliness of our system, no step of the process has missed this rigorous review. The latest Netsch equipment and Schneider automation controls ensure product excellence in every batch. Late to market has actually been a huge advantage for Yatu.

The culture of enterprise

Some of the most technologically advanced and highest quality products in the world are now made in China. A focus on this area of business has seen the country delivering beyond expectation. This renewed reputation of precision and quality is the cornerstone of the new enterprise culture. Yatu is at the spearhead of this new wave – a company that has invested in the best equipment, the best people and the best processes to ensure that it delivers a product range to rival the best in the world.

The sheer scale of our operation as China’s famous auto paint company enables us to achieve the economies of scale that make our products such great value for money. Continual innovation has seen us being awarded with numerous accolades as well as achieving significant international certifications and patents.
