In the history of mankind's automobile popularization, Ford has pushed the revolution in the automobile industry and created a legend that is evident to everyone.
It was awarded the “Most Innovative Volume Brand 2015” at the Automotive INNOVATIONS awards in April. The company aims to produce high quality automotive that cater for the diverse needs of the consumers.

It took the Donglai several years to pass the tests by Ford's materials technology center in Detroit on its coating products as well the certification of its quality and service systems. It is the sixth car refinish paint brand that has got the full certification by Ford in the American car manufacturer’s 112 years’ history. With such a success Donglai has proved its strong position in the industry and made history again in the global car refinish industry.

Zhu Zongmin, CEO of Donglai, said that his company has already got certifications from most car brands worldwide. It is also the only Chinese car refinish brand to be approved by global car manufacturers.

Passing the strict approval process by Ford is a new milestone for Donglai. It means that its outstanding technical team and high quality products has been recognized, said Zhu.

Donglai is a new player in the homogenized global car refinish market monopolized by a few multi-national paint companies. It is committed to providing unprecedentedly differentiated products and service to its customers and manifesting the great innovative power of China.
