Saurer Expands Suzhou Plant, Focuses Operations

The Saurer Group, Switzerland, has set up a new production facility in Suzhou, China, near Shanghai. "With [this] factory we want to intensify our production in China, concentrate our technological presence and thus achieve short distances to customers", said Heinrich Fischer, CEO, speaking at the opening ceremony. "Initially," he added, "the facility will supply machinery and equipment to the Chinese market, with plans to produce machine sub-assemblies and eventually complete machines for the global market."

Saurer also has moved production, sales and service of its covering machines from Hamel AG, Switzerland, to Volkmann GmbH, Germany, and is concentrating twisting, cabling and covering machine production at Saurer-Allma GmbH, Germany; Saurer Suzhou; and Volkmann.
