A second ground-breaking ceremony – Pollmann doubling its size in China

Twelve years after establishing a location in China, the second ground-breaking ceremony took place in April: It marked the beginning of our construction project to double the production capacities of Pollmann China. Consul General Robinson-Seyrlehner and Consul (Commercial Affairs) Mag. Schösser from the Austrian Consulate in Shanghai and Mr. Gu Xiangmin, Mayor of the city of Zhangpu, attended the ceremony.

The expansion of our total building space to 20,500m2 will take place on Pollmann’s existing premises. “Fortunately, we had the foresight to buy a large enough piece of land so that we can respond well to market developments today,” says owner Markus Pollmann.

As Pollmann China Managing Director Ewald Miksche describes the company’s development: “On our 10-year anniversary a little over a year ago, we had 400 employees. Today we have 500 and we are bursting at the seams”. Our sunroof customers are also doing very well and have considerably expanded their capacities in China. Since proximity to our customers is one of our top priorities, it only makes sense that we want to join in when our customers invest in the future.

The new plant will start operations in the spring of 2019. Based on 375 million yuan in 2017, the sales target for 2022 is 600 million yuan or about 80 million euros. We plan to generate this amount with the growing number of Chinese customers and with continued business with world-renowned automotive supplier brands like BOSCH, BROSE, CONTINENTAL, MAGNA, INTEVA, INALFA and WEBASTO.
