Piovan to build new automation/hq facility in Suzhou

Italian auxiliary equipment group Piovan, which has been in the Chinese market for over 20 years, is building a 10,000 sq m facility in Suzhou, China, to produce automation systems for the plastics, food powders and refrigeration markets. The new site in Suzhou will also be the regional headquarters for all the group’s branches in the Asian region including Piovan Thailand in Bangkok, Piovan Vietnam in Ho Chi Minh City, Piovan Japan in Kobe, and ToBa PNC in Seoul, South Korea.

The signing ceremony of the agreement with the local government that will lead to the construction of the new Piovan plant in China took place recently.

Piovan opened its first commercial office in Hong Kong in 2000, while the opening of the first production plant was in 2005 in Zhuhai, in the Guangdong province, and then in 2008 in Suzhou, in the Jiangsu province.

The decision to invest in the construction of a new plant confirms once again the strategy that the group has been pursuing for years: investing in the development of an international and structured network with direct branches to always be alongside customers around the world, from sales to after-sales service, adds Piovan.

“The new building will be designed according to the best international standards,” said Flavio Zaghini, Piovan China’s General Manager, “It will have offices, technological laboratories for testing, showrooms, warehouses, a production area designed according to lean methodologies and – very important – the new R&D department dedicated to the development of innovative technologies.”

Piovan, which was set up in 1934 as a mechanical engineering company, entered the plastics industry in 1964 as an auxiliary equipment manufacturer. The company has nine production facilities in Italy, Germany, Brazil and the US as well as in China, plus 33 subsidiaries.
