Larox Opens New Production Plant In China


Nov 04, 2009

Larox recently opened the company's new production plant in Suzhou, China. 

“As a leading global supplier of industrial filtration solutions, Larox's strategy is to grow, and to offer local service worldwide. China is a very important market for us, and we want to service our Chinese customers in the best possible way," says Topi Karppanen, president and CEO of Larox Corp. “Larox has been represented for many years in China by its local agent Filterox, but opening a subsidiary demonstrates that Larox really has a long-term commitment in China. Our presence in China enables us respond better to customers' needs, monitor better market developments and emerge with new applications.”

With the growth of the Chinese mining, metallurgy and chemical process industries, the demand for high quality filtration solutions has been increasing steadily. “China is facing increasing pressure to improve its industry's energy efficiency. There are ambitious targets and programs aimed at reducing energy consumption and emissions. This drives demand for efficient filtration technology. Larox is very well positioned to offer competitive solutions to help our customers reduce costs, consume less energy and improve process performance in many ways,” says Karppanen.

Larox's production plant is located in Suzhou Industrial Park in Jiangsu province near Shanghai. “This is a very good location close to many customers, suppliers and skilled labor, with well developed logistic facilities," says Su Xugui, managing director of Larox China. A total of 30 new employees were recruited to the China office to support the existing 15 Larox China employees and the global Larox team.
