Pfeiffer Vacuum opens new plant in Wuxi China

Pfeiffer Vacuum of Asslar, Germany (which provides vacuum solutions for the semiconductor, industrial, coating, analytical and R&D markets) has celebrated the expansion of its facility in Wuxi, China with a grand opening ceremony. Double its original size, the expanded facility marks a milestone in the firm’s development in China, allowing it to better respond to local customers’ needs while supporting its strategic growth in the local coating and semiconductor market.

“This is part of our new growth strategy which includes a global investment program of €150m,” says management board representative Hugh Kelly. “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,” he adds.

At its 2019 annual general meeting, Pfeiffer Vacuum shared eight strategic pillars of the company, with Dr Eric Taberlet, CEO of Pfeiffer Vacuum Technology, highlighting the importance of the Chinese market to the firm’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. Pfeiffer Vacuum says that the expanded facility not only strengthens its presence in China but also enables closer proximity to its customers in China as well as the wider Asia market.

Pfeiffer Vacuum says that, since entering the China market in 2007, it has maintained steady growth with over 150 employees, largely part of the country’s booming economy as well as strong market demand for scientific and high-precision vacuum technology.
