AMES, Barcelona, Spain, has expanded operations with the opening of a new production site in Wuhu County, near Shanghai, China, the company states. The new factory, which incorporates a production area of 14,500 m² and will employ a workforce of 250 people, officially opened on March 28, 2017.

According to AMES, the new plant will manufacture structural sintered components for the Chinese automotive sector, as well as making it possible for AMES to manufacture parts for other Asian markets depending on demand.

The factory is currently in the preparatory stages, with industrial machinery start-up and staff training underway. Production is expected to begin in full in May 2017 following client approval.

AMES’s decision to expand operations into China, the company stated, follows a trend of dramatic automobile production growth in the region and an increased need among China-based clients for a supply of locally built high-technology components.
