Höganäs to upgrade and expand its Shanghai metal powder mixing facility

 

Höganäs AB has begun upgrades to its metal powder mixing facility in Shanghai, China. The company has announced that a state-of-the-art mixing station for advanced metal powder mixes will be opened in 2018.

“Asia, and China in particular, are important markets for Höganäs,” stated Fredrik Emilson, Höganäs CEO. “With the upgraded mixing station we can supply our customers in the region with unique, consistent mixes in very short time.”

The upgrade of mixing station in Shanghai aims to increase Höganäs’ capacity to both produce tailor made customer mixes and handle large, two ton flex bags. The project will also improve work environment, upgrade existing facilities and equipment and build a new warehouse and quality control lab.

“Höganäs’ offering in mixes, especially bonded mixes, has grown immensely year on year in the past six years. Now we are preparing for growth in the years to come,” added Terry Chen, Operation & Supply Manager at Höganäs in Shanghai.

The ground-breaking ceremony was held in October. In an opening address, Richard Molin, Operations Manager APAC, stated, “We believe that Höganäs will be an even more attractive company for people in the neighborhood to come and work for. We hope that this important step into the future, with the state-of-the-art facility here in Qing-Pu, will show everyone that Höganäs continues to focus on Asia and especially on China.”
