Factory space triples / steute moves into larger production plant in Shanghai/China

steute Technologies GmbH & Co. KG is expanding its production capacity in China. The company with headquarters in Löhne, Germany, develops and produces high-quality switchgear, intelligent sensors and innovative wireless systems for medical and industrial applications. The Shanghai subsidiary was founded in 2011 to supply the Chinese market, attending to Chinese customers and producing switching systems for their industrial needs, as well as user interfaces for medical devices in China. 

Marc Stanesby, Managing Director of steute Technologies: "We have continually expanded our business in China, building up a strong and discerning customer base. At our previous location, further growth was no longer possible. By moving, we have been able to triple our factory space. And here, in this state-of-the-art technology centre, the conditions were ideal."

Time and cost-effectiveness were the factors driving the original decision to produce in China: "As a specialist provider of niche solutions, we manufacture many different variants and customised products. It is also important to us to source materials locally and be able to deliver without delay. This is part of our recipe for success."

Alongside the move of its production plant, steute has also expanded its sales team in China. James Zhang, Managing Director of steute Electrical Components Co. Ltd.: "We are convinced that we will require increased capacity in the very near future. All signs are pointing in this direction."
