Coperion Opens New Plant in China
Coperion (Nanjing) Machinery Ltd. Co., Nanjing, PR China, recently opened a new facility in the Nanjing Jiangning District. Coperion President Kimberly K. Ryan inaugurated the new plant in Nanjing Jiangning District in a formal and festive ceremony.
The plant opening marked the completion of the new construction and the relocation from the old plant to the new one. The move was necessary as the old site in Nanjing Jiangning District was rezoned by Nanjing Jiangning Government for future R&D and commercial development. With the support of the Government of Jiangning Economic & Technology Development Zone, Coperion was able to find a new plant for manufacturing and production purposes nearby. Construction work started in May 2014 and was finished in June 2015.
With a footprint of more than 15,000 sq. m the new production will continue to focus on manufacturing the STS and CTE twin screw extruder series. In order to serve Coperion’s manufacturing needs, the new building has state-of-the-art machinery production technology with engineering and manufacturing know-how from Coperion Stuttgart, Germany and an optimized, tailor-made workshop layout for highly efficient production.
“Coperion’s new Nanjing manufacturing plant is another step forward for Coperion and reflects the importance of Coperion Nanjing to our business” said Ms. Ryan during her opening speech. “We see it as an investment in the future and a clear commitment to our customers. Coperion Nanjing will continue to play an important role in our network, not only as an extruder manufacturing site but also from a customer service point-of-view."
