E-P's new 34,000 sqm factory can produce 10,000 units of electric warehouse equipment annually.
E-P Equipment has opened what it claims is the largest electric warehouse equipment factory in China.
At last week's opening ceremony of E-P's new Hangzhou factory, staff demonstrated the forklift manufacturer's new products - three electric pallet truck models, two electric stacker models and three counterbalance forklifts. All the models have AC technology and will be launched globally in the first quarter of 2010.
The 34,000 sqm (365,973 sqft) factory can produce 10,000 units of electric warehouse equipment annually. It consists of two automatic assembly lines, one for electric pallet trucks and stackers and another for three-wheel and four-wheel counterbalance electric forklifts.
E-P spokeswoman Sang Tian tells Forkliftaction.com News
that the new plant and products, showcasing the manufacturer's progress and development in 2009, is an encouraging sign for its global dealer network and customers.
"We will keep our promise even under global recession to whomever we work with. Let's grow together," Sang says, echoing the company slogan.
E-P plans to build two more plants, each about the same size as the Hangzhou facility, in 2010.
Established in 1983, E-P Equipment, headquartered in Hangzhou's Xiacheng district in China, has branch companies in the US, Japan and Korea and long-term OEM partnerships with international forklift companies. It has over 200 dealers globally and claims to supply the most complete materials handling equipment range in China.
