TOKYO, June 26 Japan's Alps Electric Co
said it has not been contacted by General Motors Co over
any problem with its China-made ignition switches, in relation
to a massive recall by the U.S. automaker.
GM said in a filing with U.S. safety regulators that
switches in cars used in the Chevrolet Impala and Monte Carlo,
Buick LaCrosse and Lucerne, and Cadillac DeVille and DTS cars
that were recalled on June 16 were made by China-based Dalian
Alps Electronics Co, which is 90 percent owned by Alps.
"As of today, we have not been contacted, or received any
complaint from GM of any problems or defects with Alps'
switches," said Takashi Sogo, group manager of investor and
public relations. He said Dalian Alps had also not received any
complaint from GM.
