Trelleborg expands China production facility

13 December 2019

China – Gaskets supplier Trelleborg has expanded its Chinese factory in response to an increase in local demand for tunnel seals. The expansion will see the company produce its Gina gasket locally for the Chinese market, following the addition of a new manufacturing line at its Qingdao facility.

Richard Hepworth, president of Trelleborg’s marine and infrastructure operation, said: “China is home to some of the largest and most demanding, and in some cases increasingly complex, infrastructure projects across the globe. As such, expanding production capacity in Qingdao ensures that we’re well placed to meet customer needs across the region with feet on the ground, local support and superior turnaround times – often imperative for high-stakes projects. Our Gina Gaskets have historically been designed and engineered at our Ridderkerk facility.”
