The extensive relocation comes as a result of the company’s phenomenal growth in China over the past 17 years. In line with HK Wentworth’s strategic objectives to take Electrolube China to the next level of growth and development, the new factory houses five floors and provides enormous capacity to expand the manufacturing capability of Electrolube products, which include conformal coatings, thermal management materials, encapsulation resins, contact lubricants, cleaning solutions and service and maintenance aids.

This is a very dynamic time for Electrolube and the move forms part of our strategic plan to drive the organisation forward and build on Electrolube’s thriving reputation in the Asian electronics industry.”

The new manufacturing facility in Zhuji combined with our extensive R&D facility in Suzhou represents a real coup for Electrolube China and we will continue to support the local domestic market as well as export Electrolube products all over the world.”
