Chinese Wire Company Expands
Eutectic Castolin China moves to new facilities near Pudong New Area, Shanghai
SHANGHAI, China — On an expansion path for more production space, Eutectic Castolin China moved on into new facilities near Pudong New Area, Shanghai, in October. Twice as large as the former manufacturing and office area, the new 3,200-square-meter factory is located close to the airport.
The company currently manufactures CDP® wearplates and cored wires, with further investments planned in 2016 for additional standard-CDP production lines, plasma cutting machines, and bending/rolling equipment for customized wear parts fabrication. Moreover, the Castolin Eutectic Chinese subsidiary provides workshop and in-situ welding/coating services by plasma transferred arc and arc spray. Hosting a spacious production hall, a maintenance and repair workshop, demo rooms for customer visits, a stock warehouse, and administrative offices, the new premises are well-equipped for providing one-stop-shop services to the Chinese market.
“We’re very enthusiastic about this investment. It’s a new facility that will allow us to grow to new and higher levels, offering our customers a more complete service range,” said Kah Bin Sew, CEO of Eutectic Castolin China for the last 10 years.
CDP wearplates consist of an easy-to-weld steel plate overlaid with abrasion- and erosion-resistant alloys by means of arc-welding, metal-atomized, or plasma-powder coating. Their role is to provide an extended lifespan of protected surfaces, reduce maintenance costs, and increase plant availability by means of less-frequent maintenance shutdowns.
