The Wittmann Group has already been active on the Chinese market for many years. With the construction of a new sales and service center in Dongguan, its activities in Southern China will now be further strengthened.
The Chinese plastics industry has undergone substantial further development over the last few years. Today, China is by far the largest processing market worldwide for all kinds of plastic materials. Most recently, the dynamism of its business activities has accelerated even more, so that they promise further growth for the coming years as well.
With its plant in Kunshan, the Wittmann Group has already been operating a highly developed production site in China for many years, where numerous products from its entire portfolio are manufactured for the local market – in particular robots, temperature controllers, materials handling equipment, compact dryers and granulators.
Within China, rapid growth is manifesting itself especially in the country’s southern regions. With the foundation of Wittmann Battenfeld (Dongguan) Co. Ltd., its third facility in China so far, the Wittmann Group is planning to strengthen the existing sales and service activities in Southern China even further. In addition to numerous local sales offices scattered all over China, the Wittmann Group has already had a central office for the southern part of China in Shenzhen (Guangdong Province). This will now be replaced by a new 4-storey building located in a high-tech industrial park in Dongguan. The new premises will have more than 824 m² of office space, plus facilities for training programs and an exhibition hall for demonstrating injection molding machines and various other products manufactured in-house. The construction of the subsidiary’s new facility is progressing fast and expected to be completed by the end of this year. Especially in times of pandemic with restrictions on travel, the importance of a strong local presence has been underscored in an impressive way.
