Maag Pump Systems AG has opened two new production facilities in Shanghai and Guangzhou to optimise product and service offerings in the Chinese market.
The Oberglatt, Switzerland-based company is a manufacturer of gear pumps, pelletising systems, filtration systems and pulverisers for use in the plastics, chemical, pharmaceutical and food industries.
The first of the two facilities is a 4,000 m2 facility in the Jiading District of Shanghai.
The facility, which opened 1 Nov, will produce pumps and pelletisers while housing offices for sales, service and after sales support.
According to Maag, the unit features the “largest rotor-regrinding centre in China”, with the ability to process up to 2,000 rotors per year.
“We have built this facility with the intention of bringing global manufacturing quality and expertise to China,” said Paul Merich, VP and general manager of Maag in Greater China.
The second facility is a rotor-regrinding centre in the city of Guangzhou, which will market Maag’s rotor-regrinding products and services in the south of China.
In addition, an applications/technical lab is being set up at the facility, which will allow “hands-on demonstrations” of all Maag products, including those from Maag, Gala and RE Scheer.
