Endress+Hauser expands flowmeter production in China

Gerald Ondrey

Endress+Hauser (Reinach BL, Switzerland; www.endress.com) is manufacturing more and more flowmeters in Suzhou, China, with the principal growth drivers being water and wastewater industry. Endress+Hauser Flowtec, global leader in flow measurement technology, has reacted by enlarging its plant in the east of the People’s Republic.

The extension work was recently completed after getting underway in March 2012. “With respect to production logistics, the new building allows us to respond even more quickly and flexibly to our customers’ demands,” says Gerhard Jost, managing director of Endress+Hauser Flowtec. An extra 3,600 square meters — increasing the total floor space to 18,000 square meters — is earmarked mainly for the production of measuring tubes as main components of magnetic flowmeters.

Klaus Endress, CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group, sees the new expansion as part of a sustained growth strategy: “We develop our production sites around the globe to be close to our customers wherever they are in the world.” The expansion in Suzhou is designed to meet the growing demands of the Chinese market.

One of the most important targets adopted in China’s 2010 five-year plan was the nationwide upgrading of the water infrastructure. “This gives us the unique chance to get established in this growth market with high quality measuring instruments,” explains Jost. “Whether in water treatment, sewage plants or water distribution, the exact measurement of water flows is a critical factor in process control.”
