Share this article
China has always been an important market for the Trutzschler Group. The company built its first factory in the country in 2001. Now, Trützschler is further expanding its business in China to embrace the dynamic development of China’s nonwovens market.
Back in September 2019, the company formally established the Trutzschler Textile Machinery (Jiaxing) Co., Ltd. In 2022, it officially inaugurated and began production activities at a new factory. It features a modern design that was created with a strong focus on sustainability. The new site is now significantly improving operational efficiency and further boosting business development for Trutzschler in China.
Getting even closer to customers
Trutzschler Textile Machinery (Jiaxing) Co., Ltd. is located in the Pinghu Economic Development Zone. The first phase of the factory covers 26,666 square meters, with a production area of 17,600 square meters. It mainly produces nonwoven equipment and spare parts, while improving our local services even more. The facility is able to serve and deliver entire spunlace lines (inline and crosslapped), thermo-bonding lines as well as opening and web-forming systems for chemical and needling production lines.
State-of-the-art and sustainable
The new factory is equipped with high-precision equipment such as automatic handling robots, intelligent storage systems, ABB welding robots and Zeiss coordinate measuring instruments. These state-of-the-art features significantly improve production efficiency and product quality. The site also has air conditioning throughout the entire workshop. This makes it possible to maintain a consistent workshop temperature, which ensures the processing accuracy of the equipment and provides a comfortable working environment for employees.
The Trutzschler Group officially announced its carbon neutrality target in 2022, aiming to achieve carbon neutrality in all production sites worldwide by 2035. The new factory contributes to this ambition because it features energy-saving production equipment and generates its own electricity supply through solar panels on the rooftop of the building.
The nonwovens market in China is dynamic and attractive – and the Trutzschler Group has a longstanding commitment to its customers in this country. By further strengthening its production footprint in China, the company is now taking action to get even closer to its customers while investing in a state-of-the-art sustainable production site to serve this key market. Looking ahead, Trutzschler is already planning a second phase of the production site that will cover almost 11,333 square meters. In this way, the Trutzschler Group is going to increase its capacity to provide sustainable innovations and expert service – and empower customers across the Chinese nonwovens market to tap into exciting potential for business growth.
