It has been nearly thirty years since the first Sidel office opened in China. Ten years ago, the company’s Beijing plant, which occupies a floor area of 40,000 square meters within the Beijing Economic and Technological Development Area, celebrated its inauguration when its first piece of equipment moved into operation. Today, the site has become an important international base of operations for Sidel due to its strong manufacturing capabilities, underpinned by global expertise and close proximity to local players in the beverage, food, home and personal care businesses.
Sam Strömerstén, President & CEO of Sidel, highlights, “Our Beijing site was the largest industrial investment ever made by Sidel, the only factory we have that is able to manufacture such a wide variety of packaging equipment. Nearly 4,000 installations in the country, the professional technical trainings offered in our 1,200 square meters Technical Training Centre and our continuous focus on quality, based on a LEAN manufacturing approach and driving our industrial footprint globally, are clear proofs of our commitment to the Chinese market.”
