The plant at the CAREL Electronic Suzhou subsidiary has been created with the aim of strengthening production for the Chinese market and consolidating the group’s presence in the Asia-Pacific region.
A significant area in the new complex will be dedicated to R&D and approximately 50 personnel employed in the department will contribute to making the research centre a major hub for the development of new technologies.
The inauguration was attended by the company’s founders, Luigi Nalini and Luigi Rossi Luciani, and group CEO Francesco Nalini, representatives of Suzhou New District, Wang Mo, Huang Feng and Simon Xie, and the Italian Consul in Shanghai, Michele Cecchi, who personally opened the ceremony.
Also attending were the president of the Chinese Association of Refrigeration Jin Jiawei and representatives of the Italian Chamber of Commerce in China, Lorenzo Riccardi and Emanuela Vizzaro, as well as the two CAREL managers directly involved in the development of the new plant, Alberto Catullo, CEO North APAC, and Luciano Marzaro, managing director, CAREL China.
Francesco Nalini said: “When we built the first plant in 2005, we were convinced of the importance of investing in this market. The inauguration of the new production plant in the Suzhou district confirms that we made the right decision in the past, and opens up great prospects for the future. The construction of this new site symbolises our dedication and continuous commitment to creating a centre of excellence in China and a point of reference for the whole of Asia.”
