Rieter’s long tradition of trading relations with China dates back to 1940, when Chinese spinning mill customers purchased their first Rieter machines. In the 1990s Rieter established presence in China with a joint-venture assembly plant, and in 2000 opened its own production plant in Changzhou. Since then Rieter has successively expanded in China with substantially investments in market-specific product development, sales and distribution, local customer services and local manufacturing.
The factory building now opened at this new Rieter plant, the second in Changzhou, is already fully operative. It will enable Rieter to meet customer needs in China significantly more comprehensively. After the successive commissioning of further production buildings, completion of the entire plant is scheduled for the end of 2013. By expanding activities in China, Rieter is following up the strategic goal of stronger growth particularly in local markets.
Today Rieter has already established a localized product offering in China that includes a semi-automatic rotor spinning machine, draw frame and combing machines, carding and blowroom machines. To this purpose Rieter is not only expanding production capacities, but also planning production of additional ring spinning machines. By the end of 2013 Rieter aims to offer two localized final spinning processes in China including all preparation stages.
Changzhou will therefore play a key role in Rieter’s global production network.
In his speech at the inauguration ceremony, Erwin Stoller, Chairman of the Rieter Board, said “We are very proud to present this new production plant to you today. It not only follows up our principles of operational excellence, but also sets us new benchmarks. I have got to know our Chinese colleagues here in Changzhou as highly innovative and future-oriented, and I heartily thank them for their enormous commitment.”
Rieter is a leading supplier on the world market for textile machinery and components used in short staple fiber spinning.
