Carel opens EEV line in China

CHINA: Italian refrigeration controls manufacturer Carel has opened a new production line devoted entirely to electronic expansion valves at its plant in Suzhou, China.

The new line is at Carel’s 15,000m2 plant in the SND district of Suzhou, which was opened last year with the aim of strengthening production for the Chinese market and consolidating the Group’s presence in the Asia-Pacific region.

“The opening of a new valve production line in China is part of Carel’s strategy for creating production capacity near its main markets (in this case, the APAC region), as well as ensuing redundancy and backup for its European production plants,” added Pietro Rossato, group chief operations officer. “This means we can guarantee our customers business continuity and mitigate any negative effects due to disruptions, such as in the case of the current pandemic”.
