Man Yue International Holdings Ltd has signed a second five-year cooperative agreement with the Research Institute of Tsinghua University in Shenzhen. An array of new products jointly developed by the two parties including aluminum electrolytic capacitors (E-Caps) and energy storage devices will be gradually introduced to the market soon.

The firm signed the first cooperative agreement with Tsinghua University in 2004 to set up the about 300 sq. m. Man Yue Industrial Electro-chemical R&D Centre at the Research Institute of Tsinghua University in Shenzhen.
