Company background

Yulon is a major Taiwanese carmaker and distributor. It manufactures and markets Luxgen-brand vehicles, and operates dealerships for Nissan via a joint venture in Taiwan and China. It also distributes Mitsubishi vehicles through affiliate China Motor.

The company was founded by Shanghai-born entrepreneur Yen Tjing-ling in 1953 when Taiwan was trying to establish its own automotive industry after World War II. Yulon started out making car components. After Yen died in 1981, his wife, Vivian Wu Shun-wen, took over the company. She was considered one of Taiwan's most influential business leaders before she died in 2008.

Yulon was one of the first major Taiwanese companies to expand into China in the 1990s, setting up facilities in the southern province of Fujian at a time when Chinese President Xi Jinping, then a senior Communist Party official in the region, was aggressively wooing Taiwanese investment.

Current Chairman Kenneth Yen is the only son of Tjing-ling and Wu. He succeeded Wu as Yulon's chairman in 2007. He has a bachelor's degree in business administration from Rider University in the U.S.
