SHANGHAI, July 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cooper-Standard Holdings Inc. (NYSE: CPS), the parent company of Cooper-Standard Automotive Inc. ("Cooper Standard"), today demonstrated its commitment to global expansion in the Asia Pacific region during the grand opening event for its new Asia Pacific Technical Center in Shanghai, China. The Company's Asia Pacific headquarters will also relocate from Kunshan, China to the new Shanghai facility.

The new Asia Pacific Technical Center and headquarters covers 762 square meters with 55 employees who support the entire region's customer base.  From this location, the Company will provide local technical support with engineering and design capabilities to the entire Asia Pacific region customer base.

"The opening of this facility is the latest step in executing Cooper Standard's profitable growth strategy," said Jeffrey Edwards, chairman and CEO, Cooper Standard. "The Asia Pacific region represents the greatest growth in automotive production through 2020. The new facility expands Cooper Standard's technical presence by providing additional engineering capabilities and support for our customers in the region and on a number of global platforms."

At the event, Edwards and Cooper Standard's Global Leadership Team highlighted the Company's growth strategy, including its current and future goals. The Shanghai facility showcases technology innovations and underscores the Company's commitment to grow in the region. Attendees were also invited to tour the new technical center.
