ebm-papst started the construction of a new plant in Xi'an, the Chinese capital of Shaanxi province. From summer 2019, fan solutions for the Asian market are to be produced on 27,000 square meters. ebm-papst is investing 30 million euros in its new location in Xi'an.
Stefan Brandl, Chairman of the Managing Board of the ebm-papst Group: "Demand for our products in the Asian market is growing steadily, so that we need further production capacities in addition to our plant in Shanghai. With this new building, we are implementing a further step in our internationalization strategy "Structure 2020" and the associated further localization in Asia".
The decision for the new location near the city of Xi'an, with its 12 million inhabitants, is reinforced by the high availability of qualified specialists and excellent transport and logistical connections.
"In addition to China, we also have our sights set on the emerging markets which will in future be supplied with products from our new location," says Thomas Nürnberger, President and CEO of the ebm-papst China. "These include above all the Asean states with countries such as Indonesia, the Philippines and Thailand, which are on the threshold from a developing country to an industrialized state," adds Nürnberger.
