ABLAR, GERMANY: Pfeiffer Vacuum, one of the world’s leading providers of vacuum solutions, has expanded its facility in Wuxi, China with a grand opening ceremony of a new plant.

Double its original size, the new, expanded facility marks a significant milestone in Pfeiffer Vacuum’s development in China, as it allows the company to better respond to local customers’ needs while supporting its strategic growth in the local coating and semiconductor market.

At the 2019 annual general meeting, Pfeiffer Vacuum shared 8 strategic pillars of the company, with Dr. Eric Taberlet, CEO of Pfeiffer Vacuum Technology highlighted the importance of the Chinese market to the company’s development. As one of the key cities in the Yangtze River Delta region, Wuxi has been receiving strong government support to develop its semiconductor, electronics and solar industry. The expanded facility not only strengthens Pfeiffer Vacuum’s presence in China but also enables closer proximity to its customers in China as well as the wider Asia market.

In support of the vacuum technology industry in China, Pfeiffer Vacuum has been working closely with top local enterprises, scientific research institutions as well as other industry partners with its products and rich expertise. With the new, expanded facility, Pfeiffer Vacuum is set to deliver more value to local customers and deepen its commitment to the China market in the future.

“This is part of our new growth strategy which includes a global investment program of €150 million. In addition to providing after-sales service, the bigger facility will now also allow for the production of dry pumps and our new leak detection systems ATC, as well as the assembly of pumping stations. With the introduction of industry-leading technologies and equipment, Pfeiffer Vacuum is better poised to react to the needs of local customers,” said Hugh Kelly, representative of the management board.
