In the past, the automotive air conditioning industry in our country has followed the large foreign companies, including the entire automotive parts enterprises. From following to introducing, digesting and absorbing, it is now gradually moving to its own innovation level. Now Longquan automotive parts, especially automotive air conditioning parts, many enterprises and their products have reached the front of the world. The scale of local enterprises is very large, and they have become the distribution center of our domestic automotive air conditioning industry. There are many enterprises, and the level of each family is also very good, which has greatly enriched our automotive air conditioning from OEM to after-sales market.

Singing needs a platform, and the development of industry also needs a platform. This "good play" was tailored by Longquan municipal government after understanding the common needs of local enterprise development. Since the creation of Zhejiang Longquan automotive air conditioning industry innovation service complex in 2018, the role of innovation has been supported.

Taking the test center as an example, the test report is a powerful tool for enterprises to broaden the market. Over the years, due to the lack of relevant qualified test reports, many enterprises have lost orders. In order to obtain the test reports, enterprises have to send them to other provinces for testing, which takes a long time and costs high. After the establishment of the testing center, it can provide inspection and testing, technology research and development, standard setting, talent training and other multi-directional services for automobile air conditioning related enterprises. It has successfully passed the evaluation and audit of cans, and the certificate has been recognized by more than 40 countries and regions, with more than 200 testing items. At present, the platform has become the third-party testing institution with the most testing projects, the widest testing range and the strongest professional ability in the automotive air conditioning industry in China.

For example, if we are a laboratory, we also have testing needs. That is, we also have some samples for ourselves. After we have finished our own inspection, we have to send them out for inspection. If the cost of delivery is about 40000 yuan, we need to send two products and do two experiments. On our side, if an enterprise takes the same samples and the same job number, If you come to us to do it, it will only cost less than 3000 yuan. In the middle, it will cost 40000 to 3000 yuan. The time saved in the middle is not counted. We can provide it to Longquan within 5 days after we send out the samples and collect the samples and get the report. This is a saving in time and cost.

There are several standards drafted by our center in 2018 and 2019, or by our standard and local committee. The first is the standard for automobile air conditioner, evaporator, condenser, compressor, electric compressor and thermal expansion valve for automobile air conditioner, These four standards are the main drafting units, our marking committee or our center. These four standards are Zhejiang manufacturing standards. Later, from 2018, we applied for two industry standards for the automotive industry, two standards for evaporator and condenser. The formulation of the two industry standards of automobile air-conditioning evaporator and automobile air-conditioning condenser has increased the right to speak for our center or our marking Committee, and has initially achieved the goal of automobile air-conditioning manufacturing in Longquan, automobile air-conditioning testing in Longquan, and standard formulation in Longquan.
