HELUKABEL starts manufacturing in Changzhou
New production site in China starts operations
Production has started: At the beginning of the year, just one and a half years after the ground-breaking ceremony, HELUKABEL's new production facility in Changzhou, China, went into operation. With the ultra-modern production and logistics facility, which covers an area of around 25,000 square metres, the connection technology specialist is significantly expanding its capacities in the People's Republic of China. From now on, cables for the Asian market will mainly be manufactured here according to European quality standards.
HELUKABEL has been producing in China since 2014 at its previous location in Taicang. With a sum of around 30 million US dollars, the new building is the largest single investment outside Germany in the company's history. "China and the Asia-Pacific countries are an important growth market for us," explains Managing Director Marc Luksch. "We are very pleased to be able to strengthen our position in the region with another location and offer our customers in and around China an even faster and more comprehensive service in the future". Changzhou is located about 200 kilometres west of the metropolis of Shanghai, in the middle of one of the country's most important economic and industrial centres.
