Plant relocation in China

The German automotive supplier ElringKlinger has been manufacturing in Changchun since 1993. The city is one of the major industrial centres in north China with a large number of vehicle manufacturers, steel plants and metal processing companies. ElringKlinger recently began producing cylinder-head gaskets, special gaskets and plastic housing modules at a brand-new plant in Changchun. SCHOLPP China assisted with the move and also transported a coating unit from Canada to the new plant. Two supervisors from SCHOLPP China were sent to oversee the dismantling of the plant in Leamington (Canada) and to supervise its transportation to China. In China, there were an additional 150 machines to install. Over the course of three months, SCHOLPP moved these step-by-step into the new factory, just under eight kilometres from the old production site. A total of 24 Chinese SCHOLPP employees worked on the project.
