SALTILLO, Mexico, May 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- As the world's largest manufacturer of micro-channel heat exchangers, Sanhua MCHE has followed the unprecedented trend of manufacturing migration in North America by making decisive investments in Mexico in Q4 of 2014 to further improve its global manufacturing layout.
On April 11, 2015, the first 60 micro-channel condensers came off the assembly line and were packaged at Sanhua Mexico, representing the success of the first production in a Mexican factory and a total monthly capacity of 13,000 units of micro-channel heat exchangers.
Thanks to the great support of Chairman Zhang and the top management from Sanhua Holding group, the project was able to launch in March 2014 and factory construction was soon done by September 2014. In December 2014 the first employees finished their training at R-Squared Puckett Inc., USA.
Once the main equipment was ready, the installations to the factory immediately started from February 2015. In order to provide expertise to the installation and commissioning process, Sanhua technical engineers, production leaders and suppliers worked tirelessly to complete the installation one week ahead of the original schedule to ensure that trial production ran smoothly.
The equipment for the second phase will be ready by September 2015 and by then Sanhua Mexico will be capable of producing both micro-channel condensers and evaporators with an eventual annual production capacity of 300,000 units of micro-channel heat exchangers.
The successful set-up of Sanhua MCHE Mexico Factory will be a great enhancement to its global manufacturing footprint.
In March 2015, the second production line of R-Squared factory in the United States achieved full operation, reaching annual capacity of 350,000 units of MCHE. The global production capacity of Sanhua MCHE has exceeded 2 million and achieves the overall layout of capacity configuration in North America, Latin America and Asia Pacific.
'Striving for perfection and pursuit of excellence' is the core of Sanhua's culture and in order to improve production management efficiency, Sanhua has fast-tracked the set-up of its IT department to implement the MES and SAP systems to the benefit of customers like GE during the auditing of their Hangzhou factory this year.
Sanhua MCHE is committed to optimizing energy efficiency and providing system solutions with high quality products and services. With customer and market orientation always a key focus and under the leadership of General Manager Jeb Ni, Sanhua is firmly speeding up its overseas investment in order to better serve its customers.
