AIM Solder has announced the opening of a new full-line manufacturing facility in the Changxing district of Huzhou, Zhejiang Province, China.
AIM Solder’s new 4,000 square meter plant will offer locally-made solder paste, bar solder, cored and solid wire, cleaners, adhesives and underfills. The fully-staffed facility will also provide sales support and customer service alongside AIM’s unparalleled technical support.
The company welcomed a number of distinguished guests to the grand opening of the new facility last month. In attendance were AIM executives, employees, customers and local government officials.
In his opening remarks during the ceremony, AIM’s president, Ricky Black, said, “I am proud to stand here today and see such potential for AIM to continue to build our business in China and establish a great market for our company in this important part of the world.”
AIM’s David Suraski, Executive Vice President, Assembly Materials Division, also commented on the company’s expansion. “Due to the support of our customers and partners globally, AIM has been growing steadily throughout the past several decades. In recent years, we have doubled the sizes of our operations in Europe and North America and have expanded our operations in southeast Asia. The addition of the new facility in Changxing solidifies our commitment to China.”
The ribbon-cutting was followed by a traditional lion dance and eye-dotting ceremony symbolizing wishes for the company’s continued good fortune. Guests were accompanied on tours of the state-of-the-art facility showcasing the entirety of the new production plant and how it will support the growing demand for electronic assembly solutions in China.
