With its own local R&D department and in-house tool manufacturing center in Suzhou, the new facility offers strong competencies along the entire value chain – located right on the customer’s doorstep. The inauguration ceremony was held in April 2023, yet the first die-casting in Shenyang took place already in April 2022.
The Shenyang plant’s production facility is not only state-of-the-art but the buildings also fulfil the latest sustainability standards and operate die-casting machines with closing forces of up to 4 400 tons. Currently, the plant is producing lightweight components in series production.
