Escha: New company premises in Shanghai
The Escha Group is expanding its capacities in China making room for more growth. In the middle of December 2017, the connector- and housing specialist opened a 2,800 square meter administration- and production building in Shanghai. Escha has been operating with an own sales- and production company in China since 2013 mainly supplying the Asian market with about fifty employees. By relocating to the new site, Escha is reacting to the strong company- and market growth of recent years.
“Since start-up in china about four years ago, we have successively and above all demand-based extended our product portfolio. Due to rising growth, we were at the capacity limit of our previous site. Things were getting tight particularly in production but also in administration. In order to maintain the high growth speed, we moved to a much bigger building a few kilometers away “, says Marco Heck, Managing Director of the Escha Group and adds: “The company in China is an integral part of our successful internationalization strategy. The production concept in Shanghai is almost identical to that at our home plant in Germay and our production in the Czech Republic. In this way, we also guarantee the high Escha product- and quality standards on the Asian market.“
Currently, Escha disposes of production capacities in Germany, Czech Republic, and China. Thus, the family company ensures a high availability of its products on important markets in Europe and Asia. Based on the status as ‘known consignor‘ and an AEO-certification, Escha benefits from customs-law simplifications and can guarantee high security standards within the entire international supply chain.
