More space for testing and filling technology
Baoshan, August 2016 – Schenck Shanghai Machinery has increased its assembly area in Shanghai-Baoshan by almost 50 percent to 21,000 square meters. The Dürr Group's subsidiary uses the additional space mainly for the production of testing and filling technology as well as for the assembly of wheel/tire lines and large balancing systems.
"We now have the sales, production and logistics activities of all our business fields in one place", says Peter Legner, CEO of Schenck Shanghai Machinery. From its Baoshan base the company takes care of the balancing, cleaning and filling technology business as well as test and assembly products in China and Southeast Asia. "This expansion will enable us to benefit from synergy effects and act more flexibly, especially when dealing with large systems. That way we can support our customers even more efficiently", adds Peter Legner.
The expansion is another commitment to the Chinese market. Schenck Shanghai Machinery opened the Baoshan site three years ago, thus combining its mechanical engineering activities, which were previously spread over three locations. The company employs around 600 staff.
