Rockwell Collins To Open Support Center In China

Shane Nolan

January 19, 2011 - As China’s commercial aviation industry continues to transform into a larger player in the global marketplace, Rockwell Collins, a pioneer in communication and aviation electronics solutions with a presence in China that dates back nearly 30 years, has further expanded its offerings in the region with the opening of a new China System Support Center (CSSC) in Shanghai.  

The CSSC is housed within Rockwell Collins’ recently built Shanghai office − the third facility opened in Shanghai by Rockwell Collins and the company’s fifth in China. The CSSC offers Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) on-site engineering support, fundamental and advanced engineering and program management training at customer-preferred locations, overall system integration support, and avionics system consulting to customers and partners in China.

“Having local service and support, especially in China, one of the most dynamic, high-growth aviation markets in the world means closer, stronger relationships with our customers through the entire product life cycle.” said Greg Churchill, executive vice president, International and Service Solutions for Rockwell Collins at a CSSC celebration ceremony today in Shanghai. “The CSSC stands fully prepared to work with customers on identifying and adopting best operational practices and what’s needed to meet future airspace requirements.”  

Yiping Song was appointed general manager for the CSSC. Song, a 15-year employee of Rockwell Collins, has a long-standing relationship with the Chinese aviation industry in the areas of OEM program management, avionics system integration support and most recently, commercial systems marketing for the Asia Pacific region.  

The CSSC opening comes as Rockwell Collins achieved many significant wins in China over the past year, including being selected by Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China, Ltd. (COMAC) to provide communication, navigation, surveillance, cabin management, in-flight entertainment, and simulator components for their C919 aircraft. These wins represent Rockwell Collins’ significant investment and development of strong corporate and personal relationships in China.

Rockwell Collins plans to expand its investment and increase its number of employees in China to accommodate future business expansion. Rockwell Collins is a pioneer in the development and deployment of innovative communication and aviation electronic solutions for both commercial and government applications.


Their expertise in flight deck avionics, cabin electronics, mission communications, information management, and simulation and training is delivered by nearly 20,000 employees, and a global service and support network that crosses 27 countries.
