Domino_China_Factory-OpeninDomino Printing Sciences has started construction on a new factory in China.

The foundation stone laying ceremony was attended by Domino’s Asia-Pacific management team, local government officials and representatives from the construction party.

The new factory is located in the Changshu Economic & Technological Development Zone. The planned area covers 26,667m2. Domino is investing approximately £19 million ($24.64 million) in the project.

The primary plan is to build three production lines, including ink production, ink jet printer assembly testing, as well as thermal transfer-overprinting assembly testing. The company targets an annual output of 14,000 labeling devices and 2,500 tons of ink.

Headquartered in Cambridge, United Kingdom, Domino Printing Sciences is a leader in coding, marking and labeling equipment. It has 10 production bases throughout Asia, Europe and the United States.

The Chinese market is an integral part of Domino’s overall vision for its future development. Domino China has been present in Beijing since 1995.

In May 2002, Domino’s Asia Pacific Headquarters were established in Shanghai. Since then, the company has invested in 4,500 m2 of production facilities, providing improved service to customers in China, and concurrently providing products and technical support services to the Asia Pacific Region.

“Domino’s development strategy is to strengthen its relationships with its customers, and the regional manufacturing base is a key part of this strategy,” said Johnny Tan, general manager of Domino Printing Technology (Chang Shu) Co.

“China is one of Domino’s biggest regional markets. In order to support the company’s development strategy, we chose Changshu, which is close to our Shanghai headquarters. With this location for our new factory, we will be able to serve the Asia Pacific Region more effectively, especially the Chinese market, by improving the efficiency of productions and logistics.”
