KLNE has increased its manufacturing capacity in China by opening a new facility and research and development centre in Changzhou. The 100-acre site was officially unveiled on June 29 at a ceremony attended by the company’s sales director, Wison Qi, and marketing director, Paul Nicholson, as well as dignitaries from the Changzhou local government and staff representing the Wujin Economic Development Zone.
Qi hosted the event, which saw speeches made on behalf of the local government and KLNE before the unveiling of the foundation stone by the Mayor of Changzhou and Paul Nicholson.
“This is a big project, an important project for KLNE,” said Qi. “We will have a state of the art manufacturing facility and R&D resources here. The investment is large, not just for the building itself but for the machinery and equipment to go in it. But it’s necessary for the future of the company and it’s worth it. To have an expanded manufacturing capacity, a world class R&D department and the most modern facilities available to us in a structure designed and built to our specifications will give us great advantages.”
KLNE already has manufacturing sites in Shenzhen, Xuchang and Beijing, and last month furthered its global reach by opening a new office in Melbourne, Australia.
