Reduction Engineering Scheer GmbH is increasing its presence in Asia through doubling the scale of its manufacturing operation in China and setting up a sales and service center in Taiwan to support its customer base in Southeast Asia.
"Tainan, Taiwan, was chosen as the site for the service center on account of superior logistics according to Paul Merich, Head, Asia-Pacific Sales, Reduction Engineering GmbH. The main function of the 600-square meter production area will be re-sharpening of rotor knives using CNC grinding machines. "We also plan to start manufacturing pelletizers for the Asian market from our facility in Taiwan within the next 12 months," said Merich, speaking to PlasticsToday at the recent K Show. "These will be based on our German design, but incorporate some cost-saving features that will lower price by 30-35%."
