Dated- 30 Jun , 2012 - Switzerland
The first part of the new Rieter production plant in Changzhou, Jiangsu Province, China was officially opened at an inauguration ceremony attended by high-ranking politicians and representatives of the textile industry in China and Switzerland. The commissioning of this plant is a decisive step in corporate development for Rieter, which will now be able to serve customers in the key market of China even better than before.
The factory building now opened at this new Rieter plant, the second in Changzhou, is already fully operative. It will enable Rieter to meet customer needs in China significantly more comprehensively.
After the successive commissioning of further production buildings, completion of the entire plant is scheduled for the end of 2013.
By expanding activities in China, Rieter is following up the strategic goal of stronger growth particularly in local markets.
Today, Rieter has already established a localized product offering in China that includes a semi-automatic rotor spinning machine, draw frame and combing machines, carding and blowroom machines. To this purpose, Rieter is not only expanding production capacities, but also planning production of additional ring spinning machines.
By the end of 2013, Rieter aims to offer two localized final spinning processes in China including all preparation stages.
