China: the Group achieves yet another goal

Production now officially under way for a new company, Sacmi Changshu

China and India continue to enjoy economic growth rates that show no signs of flagging: so says the economic data from both countries, markets of immense potential that European companies increasingly see as lands of opportunity. This is especially true for the ceramic and ceramic-making machinery markets, as they are closely bound to growing consumption and the steady creation of a ‘middle class’ in these regions. Sacmi has been especially attentive to the Chinese market for some years now, through participation in major trade fairs and the establishment of various production and commercial facilities in the country to meet local demand.

Sacmi’s latest investment in the People’s Republic of China is Sacmi Changshu. Already equipped with an initial machine pool and three machining centres from Sacmi Shanghai, the company effectively became operational last 5th May.
The company - which will also build and sell Riedhammer-brand ferrite kiln production lines - takes its name from the host region, part of the Suzhou province in south-east China: one of the country’s most developed areas where industrialisation is proceeding at a fast pace.

The Sacmi Changshu start-up will be completed with the installation and coming on-line of additional machines during the coming summer: these include a vertical lathe, a horizontal lathe and a milling cutter. Sacmi’s latest investment in China – which forms part of a fairly wide-spectrum presence in the country – comes just months after another major Group achievement, the inauguration of Sacmi Nanhai, located in the Guangdong province. Dedicated to the ceramic industry, this has quickly become a key reference point for local operators, largely thanks to a highly efficient after-sales service.
Inaugurated in June 2007, Sacmi Nanhai is already expanding and will soon add a further 25,000 m2 of production space for kiln construction. Work is expected to be completed in July/August 2008.
