Exclusive: Stolle invests in China
Stolle Tokan Machinery Company will serve as both a logistics and manufacturing centre for all company products. The facilities are set over 2,200 square metres and more than 40 people will be employed at two distinct sites.
“The explosion in China over the last five to six years and the large installed base of our equipment requires an in-country capability going forward,” Stolle CEO Gus Reall (pictured) told CanTech International. “Much like our Stolle Asia-Pacific operation in Vietnam we will look to provide not only basic parts and service but also
process support for can and end makers. We want to help the Chinese can market continue to grow. China has put in a lot of capacity over the last few years. It’s still a growth market but it also has a maintenance component to it now.”
The facility is expected to be operational by the end of 2012.
