Only five years after the most recent expansion in China, the Endress+Hauser Group has once again increased production capacity with a third plant in Suzhou, 100 kilometers west of Shanghai. The 16,500-square-meter facility will help the Group meet disproportionately high growth in the Far East.
The opening of the new building, which is situated in Suzhou Industrial Park, a 450-square-kilometer campus that is home to more than 20,000 companies, was recently celebrated today in the presence of representatives from government and business, as well as customers and employees. The new plant will give the centers of competence for flow measurement engineering, liquid analysis and temperature measurement engineering additional capacity.
“The roughly 44 million euros investment underscores the tremendous significance of the Chinese market,” said Dr Bernd-Josef Schäfer, Managing Director of flow measurement technology specialist Endress+Hauser Flowtec, headquartered in Reinach, Switzerland. The spacious, modern and well-lit production halls and offices provide the ideal conditions for continuing to fulfill the requirements of the Chinese market and the wishes of the customers.
