Chinese manufacturing plant of Reifenhauser to expand

May 18/2011

(Plastics Today) -- Reifenhauser's (Troisdorf, Germany) Chinese manufacturing plant for blown film lines is in the process of shipping its last two lines. Reifenhauser had acquired an adjacent site for expansion but the local government is now taking back land including Reifenhauser's existing site due to its proximity to an under-construction subway line.

This in fact turns out to be an opportune turn of events for Reifenhauser, given it was planning to reassess its strategy in China. "It might take three to four more months longer than initially intended but this gives us the opportunity to relocated to a single larger site, says Singapore-base Reifenhauser Private Ltd. managing director Jurgen Rehkopf, who was speaking to PlasticsToday at the Chinaplas show in Guangzhou. "Whatever we do, it will be based on high-tech solutions," adds Rehkopf.

In the past, most of Reifenhauser's production in China has been exported but the company does intend to re-evaluate local competition, hinting that moving forward it might have a greater focus on the local market. The refocus is also timely given it has been around one year after the debut of the Reifenhauser Kiefel Evolution film line, notes Rehkopf.
