In an elaborate ceremony HEINKEL Drying and Separation Group opened a new office and assembly hall on 15 November 2017 in Foshan next to the Southern metropolis Guangzhou in China thereby strengthening its presence and competitiveness in the Asian market. Jongia, as a member of the group, will greatly benefit from the many new opportunities created.
Centrifuges, dryers, filter dryers, agitators and mixers for the Chinese market will be assembled locally in Foshan. The actual production as well as design and engineering continues to be in Europe. Herbert Haas, general manager of HEINKEL Foshan, sees great advantages: “With the opening of the new assembly hall our customers in Asia will benefit from technology and know-how `made in Europe`. At the same time our products will become more competitive and we will expand our local operations in China“.
