On Tuesday, 23rd June 2015, TGW officially launched the production facility in Changzhou and celebrated this milestone with traditional Chinese fireworks – the louder, the more successful the business.
After a year of preparations with the close teamwork of TGW China and TGW Mechanics in Austria, the milestone of opening the local production company in China, TGW Logistics Equipment Production (Changzhou) Co., Ltd., has been achieved.
With the start of production, TGW China is able to provide high quality TGW standard carton and tote conveyors for the local market and to strengthen the business in Asia. Delivery costs can be reduced drastically and the well-known TGW quality is guaranteed: “We are happy to be able to provide better service to the logistics and material handling industry in China and Asia. We are able to further increase our competitiveness throughout the market providing TGW quality on the Asian continent”, says Mark Chua, Managing Director of TGW China.
Christoph Wolkerstorfer, Managing Director at TGW Mechanics, is happy about this step: “This is another milestone of TGW to improve the position as a major player for intralogistics solutions especially in the Asian market. Besides the support of the TGW integration business in its core markets apparel, grocery and general merchandise, we can provide a technically established cost competitive conveyor package for our partners, who are installing intralogistics solutions in Asia and Australia.”
