Synventive initially moved its hot runner nozzle, tip, and small manifold manufacturing work cells to the new facility. Also moving to the new facility is the company's hot runner system R&D department. The increased space will allow the company to expand its R&D by adding a new, larger test lab and offices. The test lab will feature state-of-the-art equipment and injection moulding machines. According to the company, this expansion is the latest development in an aggressive growth plan for Synventive in Asia. From the establishment of its Asian headquarters office in China five years ago, in 2005, the company now has two manufacturing facilities in Suzhou, and direct China sales offices in Shenzhen, Shanghai, Tianjin and Ningbo, as well as other Asia locations in Taiwan, Korea, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia and India.
