New plant in China
Bonn/Shunde (PR China) - On March 12, Kautex Maschinenbau will open its new plant in China. For the Bonn (Germany) based manufacturer of blow molding machinery, this is an important step that will give room for further growth. The previous production facility in Shunde (in the province of Guangdong) was already bursting at the seams. The new plant—also in Shunde—meets the current requirements in terms of production capacity and quality standards.
Long but successful search
The new plant was constructed only a few minutes' drive away from the old site. Bright, pleasant and functional, it offers plenty of space for the production, development, service and sales operations as well as visiting customers. “In many respects, our old site no longer met our requirements. Also its outward appearance did not project the quality of our products,” says Mr. Gouliang Du, President of Shunde Kautex Plastics Technology.
Room for growth
The newly built plant will just allow the manufacturing of more machines, but more importantly of larger machines. This is made possible by a higher ceiling in the production hall and correspondingly higher craneways. “We need the space mainly for the multi-layer and multi-cavity machines that are increasingly in demand”.
Already this year, a significantly higher number of machines will be manufactured and shipped to customers. The new production hall, designed with much natural lighting like its Bonn counterpart, and the new and substantially larger office wing will bring enormous improvements for the ca. 115 employees.
Bright and pleasant conference rooms of various sizes will provide an appropriate setting for visiting customers. Also the desire to have more room for training has been addressed. Engineering and Sales will have their new home on the ground floor so as to be as close as possible to the assembly hall. Mr. Gouliang Du is confident that the new facility provides the ideal conditions to achieve the desired growth. …more minimize
