Halton opened a new production facility in the Lingang area of Shanghai, China. In this new location Halton will manufacture its line of hoods for commercial kitchens, ventilated ceilings and pollution control systems.
The new factory includes a showroom demonstrating a variety of Halton's commercial kitchen solutions. "It is important to us that we can demonstrate our technologies and to develop them close to our customers and also together with them. It is important to our customers that we can offer them state-of-the-art solutions that also comply with the local market requirements," says Georges Gaspar, director of Halton Foodservice.
In the previous location, Halton will continue to serve the company’s Chinese and Asian markets by manufacturing Halton Marine’s fire dampers and demisters and Halton Health’s laboratory solutions. Halton has steadily expanded its operations in China since 2005 when the company opened its first manufacturing operation in the country. The current factory opened in 2010.
Halton exports its products from China to different parts of Asia, including Japan, South Korea and India.
