Schattdecor Inc. (USA)
The second printing facility in Quzhou, China began operations in May 2019, making it Schattdecor’s 18th location worldwide. The plant was designed and built by the Schattdecor Group itself over a period of 13 months. And in the spring of 2019, the site’s first roll of printed paper was already ready for delivery.
Over a period of one year, the company built a production and office facility with 25,000 m² of floor space on a property spanning 100,000 m². Construction work on the adjacent buildings and outdoor facilities is scheduled to be completed in June 2019. The new building offers space for a total of ten narrow 4-foot and six wide 8-foot printing machines. The surface specialist built the new facility in response to limitations on capacity at the Shanghai plant, which had been producing at full capacity for some time.
According to Roland Auer, CEO of Schattdecor AG: “We are currently reaching our capacity constraints in Shanghai, but there is simply no way to expand the site structurally. This means we needed to build a second production facility immediately. We are seeing strong demand for printed decor paper in Asia, so it was only logical to invest in another location. This allows us to expand our local capacities and offer a comprehensive range of products from the two printing facilities, along with impregnation in Huanggang and our Kingdecor joint paper venture in Quzhou. By opening this new location, we have created the ideal conditions to respond to the dynamic growth we are seeing in China and Asia.”
Initially, the plant will be equipped with two 4-foot printing machines. Two additional printing machines are already in production and are scheduled to go into operation by the end of the year.
Following the acquisitions of the Malaysian impregnation company, Vasatech, and the American finish foil manufacturer, US Coating, at the beginning of 2019, the Schattdecor Group is once again expanding its network by adding another international location.
