The cornerstone laying ceremony took place in the presence of the official representatives of the local government / administration and the team of HUBER China represented by managing director Franck Loctin.
The Shaxi District is located in the northwest of Shanghai on the Changjiang river (also called “blue river”). The construction works for the 13,000 m² new office and production area, 1,800 m² of which are office buildings, will go on there until autumn 2019.
The new production facility will have five times the capacity of the previous production in China. The medium-term goal is to manufacture there machines at the value of at least 30 - 40 million Euros and sell them exclusively to the important Chinese market.
Owing to the further increase in competitiveness and capacity, all will profit from this ambitious plan and the innovative solutions and products: HUBER SE as parent company, our subsidiary in China and, not least, China’s environment!
