Haitian International Opens Second Factory in Germany
The German subsidiary of the world's largest injection molding machine manufacturer, Haitian International, celebrated the completion of its new manufacturing hall at its site in Ebermannsdorf together with 680 guests from 15 nations.
After around 9 months of construction the 8,000 m2 new building (7,500 m2 manufacturing area) was opened on June 6, the official opening ceremony took place along with Mr. Zhang Jianming, CEO of Haitian International and Mr. Zhang Jianfeng, CEO of Haitian Plastics Machinery. The Mayor of Ebermannsdorf, Josef Gilch, brought a special gift: The new access road to the company is now officially registered as “Haitian street”.
Effective immediately, servo-hydraulic machines of the Mars II and Jupiter II Series will be assembled in this hall for the European market, customized for customers and tested through its paces. The production range covers clamping forces from 600 to 30,000 kN. With growing focus to the energy-saving two-platen Jupiter II Series (entire range 4,500-88,000 kN). At the Grand Opening visitors could already get an idea of the performance of the two-platen technology, since several Jupiter machines with up to 21,000 kN demonstrated their dynamics and precision live in action.
In the first hall, built in 2009, the electrical Zhafir machines Venus II Series and Zeres Series will continue to be assembled with clamping forces from 400 to 6,500 kN. The application center in the Zhafir hall offers mold tests and trainings for German and European customers.
With the commissioning of the 2nd factory, Haitian International Germany has a significantly extended production capacity. This will increase the availability of the machines "to go" as well as the speed of delivery time of spare parts. "The new hall and the resulting space gives us many more opportunities to offer mold testing on production cells with larger machines," says Philippe Porret, Deputy Manager of Haitian International Germany. "We are simultaneous growing in all areas. In assembling and system development, in sales and service structures, and in all levels of support. "
