Shini Plastics Technologies Inc., a Taiwanese auxiliary equipment maker, is holding a grand opening ceremony at its new Technical and Logistic Center in Suwanee, Georgia, north of Atlanta, on April 4.

This is the Shini’s first U.S. operation and the fourth outside of Taiwan, following up on sites in India, Europe and Germany.

The main focus at the 40,000-square foot Georgia building will be supporting Shini’s automation and hot runner business. It includes offices, warehouse space, a showroom and a testing and technology center. The building will stock inventory for its distributors in North and South America.

The Atlanta-area business currently employs seven people, according to Alan Chen, overseas business and marketing director. Chen said the center will hire three more employees. Kevin Allred is regional sales manager.

Shini Plastics Technologies is based in Dongguan, China. Parent company Shini Group is in Taipei.

Shini’s first warehouse outside of China and Taiwan was in Poland. The machinery maker also has a sales office in Stuttgart, Germany, and Chen said it may open a small distribution facility for Germany as well.

The company began in 1969 as a producer of electric heater bands, heating tubes, motor service and design and control box assembly. Shini got into auxiliary equipment for plastics in 1975. The equipment manufacturer did a rebranding in early 2013 to build an international brand.

Shini runs three factories in Taiwan, four in China and one in India.

Chen said previously announced plans to open a factory in the western Chinese city of Chongqin is in its final phases, and the plant should open this summer.

The address is the Georgia tech center is: 4189 Capital View Drive, Suwanee, GA 30024. The telephone number is 770-831-5959.
