Endress+Hauser announces opening of third Chinese plant

January 26, 2018 - Five years after the most recent expansion in China, the Endress+Hauser Group has increased production capacity with a third plant in Suzhou, 100 kilometers west of Shanghai. The 16,500-square-meter facility will help the Group meet growth in the Far East.

The opening of the building, which is situated in Suzhou Industrial Park, a 450-square-kilometer campus that is home to more than 20,000 companies, was celebrated in the presence of representatives from government and business, as well as customers and employees. The plant will give the centers of competence for flow measurement engineering, liquid analysis and temperature measurement engineering additional capacity.

Apart from an extensive portfolio of measurement instruments, Endress+Hauser also offers a range of global services that allow customers to optimize their processes along a plant’s entire life cycle.

To date, the Endress+Hauser facility in Suzhou has been capable of calibrating flowmeters with nominal diameters between 2 and 1,200 millimeters. In the future, the company will be able to calibrate electromagnetic flowmeters in China with a nominal diameter of up to 3,000 millimeters with a maximum measurement uncertainty of ±0.05 percent. That corresponds to a variance of 100 milliliters for 200 liters of medium – or one champagne glass for a bathtub full of water.

Endress+Hauser has been active in China with its own sales center since 1995. Today there are more than 420 sales employees in Shanghai, Beijing and 11 other offices. The flowmeter plant in Suzhou opened in 2004, followed by a second plant for the manufacture of level, pressure and temperature measurement engineering and liquid analysis. Around 290 employees work in production in Suzhou, supplying other countries in the Asian region in addition to the Chinese market.
