KraussMaffei celebrating ten years of success in China

[image_0]As a supplier of large machines in the automotive industry, the company says it has gained a good reputation and considerably extended its customer base. Furthermore, the MX swivel-platen and compression moulding machine for multicolour TV bezels and windscreens is well-established in the Chinese market. The CX Multinject for multicolour/multicomponent applications in the low and medium clamping force range is just as successful. According to the company, there is also great demand for its tooling systems for polyurethane foam applications - from design and prototyping through to complete foaming systems, for example for seat cushions and insulation applications. In addition, the company occupies a leading position in the Asian market in the production of cost-optimised machines for pipe and profile manufacturing, as well as for rubber extrusion with tyre extrusion lines. By combining its three brands and organisational structures under one roof this year, the company expects to substantially strengthen its market position in China with a wider range of products and services. The KrausMaffei group in China now already employs more than 90 people alone in the sales and service companies as well as just under 300 people in the production plant in Haiyan. Pipe and profile extrusion machines and rubber extruders, including the successor components, have been manufactured on an area of 12,000 m2 at the plant in Haiyan since 2006. The product range is supplemented by polyurethane processing machines and complete foaming systems. According to KraussMaffei, an extension of the plant in Haiyan in the next few years is already being planned.
