On 10 July 2015, Sumitomo (SHI) Demag celebrated the official opening of its new Demag Plastics Machinery facility in Ningbo, China. Demag Plastics Machinery (Ningbo) Co., Ltd., a 100% subsidiary of Sumitomo (SHI) Demag of Schwaig, Germany, steps up production capacity to 1,500 machines.

A total of 300 international customers and a range of senior staff members from parent company Sumitomo Heavy Industries Ltd. (Tokyo) attended the official opening ceremony. Demag Plastics Machinery (Ningbo) has been manufacturing injection molding machines for the Asian market since 1998. Over 17 years, the facility has delivered almost 10,000 machines to more than 1,000 customers across Asia.

With almost 27,000 m2 , the site will accommodate production and logistics facilities as well as providing about 13,000 m2 of available area and 1,400 m2 of administration floor space. At present, Ningbo is producing Systec C hydraulic injection molding machines with clamping forces from 500 to 10,000 kN. Automation solutions and turnkey systems are being engineered hand in hand with system partners such as Sepro, MAI or Kebo.

“When Sumitomo (SHI) Demag Schwaig started its out in Ningbo in 1998, they were the first injection moulding company to deliberately install a production site in China,“ Gerd Liebig, CSO, points out. “With more than 40,000 installed machines, China is and remains to be the largest international market for injection molding machines. Our investment in a new facility is the cornerstone for further growth. Our objective is the strategic enhancement of our product portfolio and a high level of application-specific support for our customers.“
