SHANGHAI, China (Aug. 22) — Trelleborg Group has opened a new plant for its Sealing Solutions business to meet increasing demand in China and the rest of Asia.
The facility will supply components — many of them made using the firm's proprietary sealing products — to such markets as aerospace, chemical processing, semiconductors, and oil and gas. Trelleborg said the factory spans more than 107,000 square feet and will employ 100 by the end of the year. The investment wasn't revealed.
The operation also will provide technical support for design and product development, along with research and testing, according to Claus Barsoe, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions president.
