Lapp: First Production Plant in China
Lapp Group, Stuttgart, Germany, is further strengthening its presence in China. This spring, the first production plant in China of the company will come on stream. The new Lapp Cable Works Shanghai Co. Ltd. production plant is located in the Southeast of Shanghai in the Lingang Industrial Park. It has a total floor area of more than 11,000 square meters, with further expansion possible down the line. Directly adjacent are sites owned by global companies such as Siemens, Caterpillar, Atlas Copco and Lenze, alongside well-known Chinese manufacturers like Shanghai Electric and Saic Motor.
Initially, the new plant will manufacture product specially certified for China (China Compulsory Certification), as well as standard products from the Ölflex power and control cable range. Within around two years, production is due to be ramped up to more than 3,000 km per month. Lapp Cable Works Shanghai will initially employ 30 people. The total investment is EUR 7.2 million. The new plant in China means that the Lapp Group is now operating five production facilities in Asia.
