China's Wanxiang looking to invest in Fisker Automotive
By: Meribah Knight January 29, 2013
Wanxiang America Corp. is interested in investing in electric car maker Fisker Automotive Inc.
According to Wanxiang, an Elgin-based subsidiary of China's Wanxiang Group, it is looking into how it can help the Anaheim, Calif.-based automaker as a key supplier, strategic partner or investor.
Wanxiang has spent much of the last decade scooping up more than two dozen troubled American companies. Yet despite rumors, Wanxiang has no plans to purchase the Fisker Karma hybrid maker; rather, the company told Crain's, it is interested only in offering a helping hand.
As of late, Wanxiang has been in the news after winning the bidding for A123 Systems Inc., a bankrupt battery maker based in Waltham, Mass. Rival bidder Milwaukee-based Johnson Controls Inc. challenged the Bankruptcy Court's decision, citing national security concerns related to A123's core technology. Late Monday, Wanxiang said, a U.S. court and the Committee for Foreign Investment in the U.S., an interagency body that screens transactions that could jeopardize national security, approved the takeover.
