The US$40 million campus will support SPX’s business expansion in China, providing integrated services for all aspects of SPX business activities in key growth areas such as global infrastructure, process equipment and diagnostic tools. In addition to manufacturing, the campus will house research and development, logistics and customer service functions.
“SPX continues to see significant demand for its products and services in China and the Asia-Pacific region,” said SPX Asia-Pacific President Bob Foreman. “This new state-of-the-art manufacturing campus underscores our long-term commitment to growing SPX's presence in China and the broader region. It will strengthen the support we provide to our customers in China, foster greater collaboration across all of our businesses, enhance our products and services and further develop the skills of our nearly 3,000 employees in China.”
The first phase of the SPX facility is expected to be completed by the end of 2011.
SPX has been in China since 1994.
