Hong Kong-headquartered injection moulding machine manufacturer Chen Hsong has established a new German subsidiary in Kempen on the Lower Rhine, to better serve the German market, said Managing Director of Chen Hsong Germany GmbH Andreas Bexte, speaking to journalists during a pre-K2019 event in Dusseldorf recently.

The 60-year old manufacturer of injection machines with clamping forces ranging from 20-6,500 tonnes already has a subsidiary in the Netherlands, Chen Hsong Europe BV, of which the new company will be a part of.

Besides Chen Hsong Europe, which is the European headquarters, the Germany company will also serve as an additional technical support base.

The company has four facilities in Shunde, Shenzhen, Ningbo in China and one in Taiwan and produces 15,000 machines/year.

It makes two-platen machines at its largest facility (560,000 sq m) in Shenzhen, with fully electric to follow soon. At Shunde, it will start in 2020 a new line of Evolution for the European market. The third factory in China in Ningbo, it makes the smallest series in its portfolio, while in Taiwan it makes the toggle machinery.

It sells 65% of its machines in China, 7% in Taiwan and the rest to the overseas market with Europe accounting for a 10% share, but with further growth expected through the new subsidiary.

Plans are afoot for the Kempen subsidiary to stock fully functional injection moulding machines for demonstrations, tests and training. The large central warehouse in the Netherlands is also well-stocked with many new machines to ensure rapid delivery to the German market, said the Chen Hsong officials.
