Schütz opens second plant in China

Schütz has laid the foundations for further expansion of its activities in China with the official opening of its second production site there after Shanghai. The new plant, equipped with full, state-of-the-art technical infrastructure, was built on a 50,000 sqm site in the city of Tianjin, not far from the capital, Beijing. An initial workforce of 50 will be employed to produce both IBCs and F1 plastic tight-head drums.

The plant went into partial production last year. Since then, all units have been completed and the plant was officially inaugurated at a grand opening ceremony on 18 May.

During a tour of the plant, guests at the opening had an opportunity to form an impression of the new production units, which comply with the latest technical and logistical standards. Particular attention was paid to the purpose-designed production environment in which manufacturing processes take place under intensified hygiene conditions, satisfying requirements for the production of food IBCs. The modern production systems operate with maximum energy efficiency – an expression of Schütz’s avowed commitment to sustainability.
