Heinzmann Power Control (Jiaxing) Co. Ltd., Chinese subsidiary of the HEINZMANN Group, has completed its move to new company premises. At present, the company occupies about half of the area of 6500 m2, the remainder being let to German partner companies. HEINZMANN expects this bundling of forces at a modern and greatly enlarged location to enable even prompter and more reliable customer support in Asia. This will be facilitated by the centralised organisation of management, production, sales and service. This move will further expand HEINZMANN China as Sales and Service Centre for Asia.
Construction of the new company premises started in April 2015. One particular requirement for the new site was that it should fulfil German construction standards. The building incorporates a three-storey production workshop, an administrative block and a neighbouring three-storey building housing training rooms and the works canteen. At present the workforce numbers 30, but it is planned to hire more personnel before very long. The new site is in a European industrial estate in the town of Dayun, in Zhejiang Province, about 70 km from the centre of Shanghai. The international airport Shanghai Pudong is about 90 minutes away by car. There are also connections to a fast train service and a motorway intersection.
The major part of HEINZMANN China’s activities is distributing HEINZMANN products to the Asiatic market. This covers both technical consulting and support such as customer services, including maintenance and repair work. The new site also produces made-up cables and constructs switch cabinets to customers’ specific requirements. The switch cabinets incorporate HEINZMANN Group components. In future the activities will also include the final assembly of actuators designed specifically for the Asian market. This will guarantee the shortest possible lead times for HEINZMANN’s Asian customers.
