Pfeiffer Vacuum GmbH, headquartered in Asslar, Germany, has expanded its facility in Wuxi, China. Said to be double its original size, Pfeiffer Vacuum states that the new, expanded facility marks a significant milestone in its development in China, allowing the company to better respond to local customers’ needs while supporting its strategic growth in the local coating and semiconductor market.

Pfeiffer Vacuum explains that since entering the Chinese market in 2007, it has maintained steady growth, employing over 150 in the region. With its expanded facility, the company expects to deliver more value to local customers and deepen its commitment to the China market in the future.

“This is part of our new growth strategy which includes a global investment programme of €150 million,” stated Hugh Kelly, representative of the management board. “In addition to providing after-sales service, the bigger facility will now also allow for the production of dry pumps and our new leak detection systems ATC, as well as the assembly of pumping stations. With the introduction of industry-leading technologies and equipment, Pfeiffer Vacuum is better poised to react to the needs of local customers.”
