The second construction phase kicks off in Beijing
BITZER paves the way for further expansion in Asia
Following the groundbreaking ceremony on June 15, 2012, BITZER China started construction for the second phase of facility expansion in Beijing. Cutting-edge manufacturing facilities, office blocks, and a logistics center will be completed just in time for the subsidiary's 20th anniversary in 2014, allowing the company to fulfill customers' needs even faster. With its high level of innovation, the planned research and development center will also ensure long-term success in China. And its extensive product portfolio of reciprocating, screw, and scroll compressors will enable the technology leader to respond more flexibly to country-specific market demands in the future. Construction of an in-house training center, which will be available to all customers and employees, is also in the pipeline, as BITZER is keen to offer further training in the areas of refrigeration and air conditioning. "It's very simple to summarize our strategy for China: long-term dedication and customer focus," explains Stephan Luerssen, Managing Director of BITZER China. "We still see enormous potential for growth in China. It's really exciting for us to be here and expand on our nearly 20 years of experience in this fascinating country."
