HELUKABEL Starts Manufacturing in Changzhou

New production facility in China starts operations.

New China Production Plant

At the beginning of the year, just one and a half years after the ground-breaking ceremony, HELUKABEL's new production facility in Changzhou, China, went into operation. With the ultra-modern production and logistics facility, which covers an area of around 269,098 square feet (25,000 square meters), the connection technology specialist is significantly expanding its capacities in the People's Republic of China. From now on, cables for the Asian market will mainly be manufactured here according to European quality standards.

HELUKABEL has been producing in China since 2014 at its previous location in Taicang. With a cost of around 30 million US dollars, the new building is the largest single investment outside Germany in the company's history. "China and the Asia-Pacific countries are an important growth market for us," explains Managing Director Marc Luksch. "We are very pleased to be able to strengthen our position in the region with another location and offer our customers in and around China an even faster and more comprehensive service in the future". Changzhou is located about 124 miles (200 kilometers) west of the metropolis of Shanghai, in the middle of one of the country's most important economic and industrial centers.
