New factory and office for WILA China

WILA has been the proud user of a brand new building in China since last March. Our WILA China division has remained in Taicang, but has moved to another location. This is because our sales organization has now been transformed into a production organization. Our Chinese colleagues were able to move into the new building once the office and showroom were completed at the start of July. Stocks for Tooling and Tool Holders were also transferred at the same time. A real tour de force! This completed the finishing phase at the factory and meant that all infrastructure was ready to use. It was then possible to start installing brand new machines at our second production location (besides Lochem, Netherlands). This location is identical to Lochem and features the same degree of automation. The factory has a surface area of 4,500 m2, of which circa 50% is now in use. This process is expected to be completed in December and Tooling production will start thereafter.

The layout and management structure at our production location in China had already been simulated at a temporary satellite site in Lochem. As a result, we think we can manage everything perfectly in China via our fully integrated business management system. This means our products will continue to meet exactly the same quality standards: World Class Manufacturing in practice. Here is an impression of our production location in China and how things are progressing.
