Union Process, Inc., known globally as a manufacturer of size reduction and dispersing equipment for a broad range of industrial applications, has moved its China operation into a larger facility.
Dr. Andrew Szegvari founded Union Process in Akron, OH, in 1946. Today, the Akron facility not only houses the corporate headquarters but also U.S. manufacturing, R&D, a testing lab and an extensive pilot plant.
To meet the needs of its growing business in China, Union Process established a joint venture company in China called Qingdao Union Process Precision Machinery Co., Ltd. As the business grew, there was a need for more manufacturing space. To accommodate this need, Qingdao Union Process purchased an existing complex in the downtown area of Qingdao, China, formerly owned by a large machine tool manufacturer.
The compound consists of one structure for manufacturing of approximately 11,000 square feet and an adjoining structure of approximately 6,000 square feet which houses the lab testing, pilot plant, and storage area and office space on an upper level. There are additional storage facilities and a gatehouse in the complex.
Arno Szegvari, president of Union Process, Inc., stated, "We are very pleased to have a larger, centrally located Chinese manufacturing facility to accommodate our Chinese customers. In a short time, we have already enjoyed strong growth thanks in part to our new plant."
Qingdao Union Process Precision Machinery Co., Ltd., is located at:
11th of Huichang Road
