The 8,000 m2 (83,111 ft2) new building, with 7,500 m2 (80,730 ft2) of the manufacturing space, will offer local assembly of the company’s Mars II and Jupiter II servo-hydraulic machine series for the European market. The expansion comes almost exactly seven years after Haitien opened the 4,300m2 production hall of its fully electric Zhafir Venus molding press series on June 18, 2009 in Ebermannsdorf.
Current production capacity will cover clamping forces of 67 to 3,300 tonnes, while the plant’s future goal will be to accommodate Haiti’s entire line of the Jupiter II two-deck series, from 506 to 7. 427 tons.
Xiang Linfa, Managing Director of Haitian International Germany, said Plastics technology that his company achieved record sales in Europe in 2015, posting double-digit growth, adding that given the initial results, the company is on the right track to continue this progress in 2016. The assembly operation Expanded European joins facilities in Vietnam, India and Brazil as Haiti’s other manufacturing operations outside of China.
In addition to adding space for assembly of larger machines, Linfa said the new hall will allow Haitian to improve its application center, including running mold tests with full production cells. .
In terms of local spare parts, Linfa said Germany maintains a stock of around 3 million euros, but with the expansion that number will rise to 5 million euros.
“We always try to keep around 100 machines in stock,” Linfa said. “First, it makes us flexible; second, it offers short delivery times. It also gives us the ability to have almost any clamp size available for mold testing.
In terms of lead times, Linfa said that once a machine arrives in Germany, the company only needs 4-8 working days for the press to be ready for delivery to the customer. “We always have a good number of machines in stock in our hall,” said Linfa. “With our extensive inventory of components and spare parts, we are able to customize with many standard options. “
According to the company’s results in 2015, when Haitian delivered more than 26,000 machines worldwide, Europe, along with Vietnam, Korea, India and Mexico, was listed as a region that “has recorded impressive sales growth ”.
