Nordisk opens state-of-the-art factory in Kunshan!

Nordisk opens state-of-the-art factory in Kunshan!

After months of hard work and planning, we are excited to announce the opening of Nordisk’s new, state-of-the-art, 7000 m2 factory located at “Plainvim Park”, on the northern side of Kunshan, China. Considerable investments have been made in new machinery, increased storage capacity and improved assembly space. We began the move in November and expect to be completely relocated by the end of the year.

What will the new facility mean for customers?

Firstly, new machinery will enable us to produce a wider range of our product portfolio, such as main deck containers and heavy-duty pallets, for the global market. In addition, by increasing storage capacity for both raw materials and finished products, we will be in a position to further improve delivery times. Increased capacity for assembling containers also enables assembly of panels and complete ULDs both for local airlines and international airlines who may want to pick up containers in the greater Shanghai region.

Fully operational by year end

The construction phase was completed by mid-October and we received the local government permits to use the building in early November. New machinery, such as cranes, racks, shelves and CNC-machines are in place, and machines and warehouse equipment are relocated from the old site. Due to large ongoing production orders, we continued assembly of pallets and container panels for small containers in the previous facility until end of November, while at the same time starting to assemble containers in the new facility. Training of operators in new machines and processes is underway, with assistance from experienced Norwegian operators.  

Remaining machines and equipment will be transferred in early December, followed by inventory, warehouse and IT. A professional moving company has been contracted for the job, to ensure a swift and problem-free transition, with minimal disturbance. We expect to be completely out of the old facility and fully operational in the new facility by the end of the year and look forward to welcoming you to the Kunshan facility in January.
