IMI Critical opens new China plant in Qingpu

27/07/2016
​​​​​​​IMI Critical Engineering Greater China opened its new facility in Qingpu, on the outskirts of Shanghai, in July 2016, bringing together its manufacturing capabilities, business management and sales under one roof.
The 6,459 m² Qingpu Plant, which includes a workshop area of nearly 5,000 m², is a major plank of IMI Critical's commitment to develop its business 'In China, For China'. The plant opened just 10 months after Roy Twite, Managing Director of IMI Critical Engineering, announced that IMI would invest nearly RMB 100 million to carry out local manufacturing in China. IMI currently employs around 200 people in China.
The official opening ceremony was hosted by Roy Twite, Member of the Executive Committee of IMI plc and Managing Director of IMI Critical Engineering. He told assembled clients and dignitaries: "Your business is the reason that we have been able to invest here in China, and we really appreciate that. China is one of the most important markets for IMI and we plan to grow our business over the next 5 years and beyond. We are committed to continuously improving our service to our Chinese customers by localising our business and investing here in China to be close to the market."



Guests of honour at the opening included customer representatives, leaders from Qingpu Municipal Government including Mr. Hai Ping Yu, President of Shanghai Qingpu Industrial Zone Development Group and Mr. Zheng Yi Zhang, Deputy-Director of Economic and Trade Commission of Qingpu Municipal Government. Members of the IMI Critical Board, and Mr. Jackie Hu, President of IMI Critical Engineering Greater China and Korea, also attended.

The new plant integrates the manufacturing capability of Shanghai CCI Power Control Equipment Co., Ltd. and Z&J High Temperature Equipment (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. It will manufacture control valves and isolation valves such as globe valves, gate valves, as well as relevant actuators and control units for power, oil and gas, petrochemical, chemical and other energy industries, especially for critical applications.
