The signing ceremony of the agreement with the local government that will lead to the construction of the new Piovan Group plant in China took place today, 15th of July.
Piovan has been on the Chinese market for over twenty years.
The opening of the first commercial office in Hong Kong dates back to the year 2000, while the opening of the first production plant was in 2005 in Zhuhai, in the Guangdong province, and then in 2008 in Suzhou, in the Jiangsu province.
A constantly growing presence not only in China but throughout Asia, thanks to a widespread network of service and sales companies.
The decision to invest in the construction of a new plant confirms once again the strategy that the Group has been pursuing for years: investing in the development of an international and structured network with direct branches to always be alongside its customers around the world, from sales to after-sales service.
The new Piovan Group plant will rise in the city of Suzhou, in the Jiangsu province, China; it will cover an area of ten thousand square meters and will be dedicated to the design and production of complete automation systems for the treatment of plastics, food powders, and refrigeration solutions.
The new site in Suzhou will be the reference headquarters for all the Group’s branches in the Asian region including Piovan Thailand in Bangkok, Piovan Vietnam in Ho Chi Minh City, Piovan Japan in Kobe, and ToBa PNC in Seoul, South Korea.
“The new building will be designed according to the best international standards”, said Flavio Zaghini, Piovan China’s General Manager, “It will have offices, technological laboratories for testing, showrooms, warehouses, a production area designed according to lean methodologies and – very important – the new R&D department dedicated to the development of innovative technologies.”
