SHANGHAI (Dec. 4, 11 a.m. ET)  — Swiss polymer melt specialist Maag Automatik has built a new China facility that will double its operational space and bring it into closer contact with the China operations of its new parent company, the Dover Corp.

The 119,000-square-foot facility in Shanghai will improve sales and service operations for Zurich-based Maag, and will be in a shared building with other units of Downers Grove, Ill.-based Dover.

Maag makes gear pumps, pelletizers and filtration systems.

“This new facility will provide Maag with the basis for supplying components and machines directly out of China, one of our most important markets,” said Andreas Weidner, sales manager for China.

“For our Chinese customers this means closer contacts, shorter delivery times and even more added value.”

The company said in a press release that the ISO 9001-certified facility includes a product showroom where visitors can observe how Maag’s locally made products are manufactured.

“This new cutting-edge facility is more than double the size of our previous Chinese operational headquarters and exemplifies Maag’s dedication to this rapidly expanding market,” said Ueli Thürig, Maag CEO. “As a benefit, our customers can look forward to an increased availability of spare parts and vastly improved lead times.”

Dover Corp. bought Maag in February and made it part of the company’s Pump Solutions Group. Dover is traded on the New York Stock Exchange.
