Grand Opening of ARGO-HYTOS in Yangzhou, China
On October 25, 2014, we celebrated the grand opening of the ARGO-HYTOS manufacturing plant in Yangzhou, China.
At two o’clock in the afternoon, Christian H. Kienzle, CEO of ARGO-HYTOS, his daughters, Nicola and Christine Kienzle, and Mr. Chen Xi, district manager of the Guangling region, welcomed the guests, cut the ceremonial red ribbon and wished the new facility success and growth.
Afterwards, the 200 guests were asked into the beautifully decorated production plant, where more surprises awaited.
Mr. Li Li, chairman of the CHPSA (China Hydraulics Pneumatics & Seals Association), Mr. Chen Xi, district manager of the Guangling region, and Mr. Rauen from the German engineering association VDMA (Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbau) offered their warmest congratulations.
Between speeches, the guests were treated to traditional Chinese music and dance performances.
Afterwards, Andreas Briegel, new managing director of ARGO-HYTOS Yangzhou, opened the Bavarian-style buffet.
An amazing fireworks display that lasted almost thirty minutes – an opening present by the industrial park GIP – marked the grand finale of the ceremony.
The opening of the Yangzhou branch clearly demonstrates the commitment of ARGO-HYTOS to China as an industrial powerhouse.
On an area of 2,500 square meters hydraulic components and systems are manufactured and assembled.
Approximately 60 people will be employed at ARGO-HYTOS Yangzhou by the end of the year.
Other sales offices of ARGO-HYTOS in China are located in Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen, Xiamen and Hong Kong.
