Multivac to establish new production facility in China

In February 2019, Multivac signed an investment agreement to establish a new production company in Taicang/China. The new production facility will enable Multivac in future to react to the requirements of customers in China with even greater speed and focus. The production of packaging machines and their peripheral components is planned for the new site. In addition to manufacturing, the Taicang facility will also have development and design departments. Steven Shen, who has worked for Multivac since 2012, most recently as Technical Manager for the sales company in China, has taken over the management of the new company on 1 March 2019.

“China is a significant market for us,” said Guido Spix, Director and Group COO/CTO. “This makes the establishment of a local production facility a logical step for us and a further stage in expanding our global production and sales network. Our objective is to achieve shorter delivery times for our customers and to be able to respond even more rapidly to the needs of local customers”.
