News

Expanded facility will allow company to better respond to local customers’ needs

Pfeiffer Vacuum, a provider of vacuum solutions for the semiconductor, industrial, coating, analytical and R&D markets, has celebrated the expansion of its facility in Wuxi, China.

Double its original size, the new, expanded facility marks a significant milestone in Pfeiffer Vacuum's development in China, as it allows the company to better respond to local customers' needs while supporting its strategic growth in the local coating and semiconductor market.

“This is part of our new growth strategy which includes a global investment program of €150 million”, said Hugh Kelly, representative of the management board, “In addition to providing after-sales service, the bigger facility will now also allow for the production of dry pumps and our new leak detection systems ATC, as well as the assembly of pumping stations. With the introduction of industry-leading technologies and equipment, Pfeiffer Vacuum is better poised to react to the needs of local customers.”

At the 2019 annual general meeting, Pfeiffer Vacuum shared eight strategic pillars of the company, with Eric Taberlet, CEO of Pfeiffer Vacuum Technology highlighting the importance of the Chinese market to the company's development. As one of the key cities in the Yangtze River Delta region, Wuxi has been receiving strong government support to develop its semiconductor, electronics and solar industry. The expanded facility not only strengthens Pfeiffer Vacuum's presence in China but also enables closer proximity to its customers in China as well as the wider Asia market.

Since entering the China market in 2007, Pfeiffer Vacuum has maintained a steady growth with over 150 employees, largely part of the country's booming economy as well as strong market demand for scientific and high-precision vacuum technology. As the inventor of the turbomolecular pump, Pfeiffer Vacuum has been investing in Research & Development for nearly 130 years, with an aim to provide cutting-edge solutions and innovative products to customers and the wider industry.

In support of the vacuum technology industry in China, Pfeiffer Vacuum has been working closely with top local enterprises, scientific research institutions as well as other industry partners with its products and rich expertise. With the new, expanded facility, Pfeiffer Vacuum is set to deliver more value to local customers and deepen its commitment to the China market in the future.
