ESAB RESTRUCTURES TO OPTIMIZE OPERATIONS IN ASIA
June 12, 2015
Shanghai, China - ESAB is restructuring regional operations in Asia to improve efficiencies and better serve our customers.
The restructuring will consolidate manufacturing of our cutting systems products from our Zhang Jiang Gang facility with our automation factory located in Wuxi, China. Consolidation of these facilities will remove complexity from our business and streamline production to enable faster delivery of high quality ESAB products to market.
To ensure that our service levels to customers continue as seamlessly as possible, this restructuring will be handled over the course of the next three months, after which our Zhang Jiang Gang facility will be closed. We expect minimal interruptions as we consolidate these operations and will provide periodic updates along the way, keeping you informed of our progress.
ESAB’s commitment to the Asian market remains strong. Since becoming part of Colfax in 2011, we have worked aggressively to improve overall customer satisfaction and at the same time implement process improvements and structural changes to enable better operational performance. The restructuring of our regional operations in Asia is in keeping with our global manufacturing strategy.
At ESAB, we are proud to have the opportunity to deliver leading-edge products and solutions and the best customer experience.
