Tauberbischofsheim, Germany- Weinig AG continues to invest in China. In Yantai, Shandong province, the world leader for machines and facilities for solid wood processing is expanding the production area of the plant by around 800 m2 to a total of 12,000 m2.

The new assembly hall was inaugurated at a ceremony attended by the members of the board at Weinig who had come especially from Tauberbischofsheim. In future Unicontrol 6 window machines will be produced there. This classic angle system for artisan production of window frames has been in Weinig's range in Germany for many years. The new production facility in Yantai is intended solely for the domestic market in China. The expansion of the range with the window machine is Weinig's response to the strong growth experienced by the wood processing industry in China. The manufacturer is very confident for the future. "Our Chinese customers value engineering from Germany", the Chairman of the Board, Wolfgang Pöschl, emphasizes. "The Unicontrol 6 will be assembled in Yantai according to German standards of quality to satisfy the increasing demands of the Chinese market."

The main factory in Tauberbischofsheim will make a significant contribution to the market drive in China. Numerous precision parts such as the cutter spindles for the machines will be supplied from Germany. "This means that the expansion of the plant in Yantai will not compete in any way with the production facility in Tauberbischofsheim; on the contrary, it strengthens its position", Pöschl explains. Weinig's premium products will continues to be made in Germany without exception.

Weinig has had its own plant in China since 1995. Following successful development in recent years, the construction of the new assembly hall marks the third large investment project.
