Japan's DP Motors builds plant in Taichung 

Because DP Motors President, Fumio Kurebayashi, was aware of the impressive basic technology and development potential of Taiwan's bicycle industry, he decided to establish DP Motors in the industry stronghold of Dajia, Taichung. He hopes to stimulate the growth of the e-bike supply chain, and provide customers the finest and most suitable products and services. 
Mid-drive motors
According to President Kurebayashi, the production line at DP's Dajia plant focuses on mid-drive motors. Depending on the state of market demand, the company may also produce high-end hub motors at the plant in the future. At present, the Dajia plant has already begun to take orders and ship products. After production technology has reached a greater state of maturity, the plant will then add an additional production line to increase capacity. The QCD-oriented plant has a projected annual output of 30,000 motors, and can provide customization and ODM services. 
Based on its supply chain concept, DP Motors decided to establish its first overseas plant in Taiwan, and it hopes it can help Taiwan to establish a complete e-bike supply chain. DP Motors is trying to localize its supply of parts and components in Taiwan as much as possible; it is aiming at the mid-/high-end market segment, and hopes to develop lightweight motors as it continues to improve its technology. 
DP's groundbreaking M080MD high-performance, compact mid-drive motor for city bikes is available in 36V/250W & 46V/350W specifications, offers over-80% efficiency, and can provide torque of 80Nm and sustain a speed of 25-32kph (the motor can be customized in order to comply with different countries' regulations); it has an overall weight of 3.5kg, making it extremely competitive, and its trim, compact design can enhance the appearance of the completed e-bike. Responding to market demand, DP has also introduced the M065 MD mid-drive motor for road bikes; this motor is very compact, and weighs less than 2.5kg, but offers an astonishing 200W and 60Nm in assist power.
