Plastics machinery facility opened in South Carolina / Focus on automotive and white goods sector
Haitian's (Ningbo, Zhejiang / China; www.haitian.com) US subsidiary Absolute Haitian (Worcester, Massachusetts / USA) has expanded its North American operations with the opening of a new production unit in Moncks Corner, South Carolina / USA near Charleston. A grand opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on 30 May 2019, including a tour of the new facility for customers, suppliers, public officials and other guests.

The new 11,000 m² facility provides additional capacity to support Haitian International’s product lines for injection moulders in the US and Canada. It complements existing facilities in the US, in Massachusetts, Ohio and Illinois plus warehousing in southern California. The proximity to Charleston's port allows the company to easily supply customers in the states of Michigan, Ohio and Indiana.

The facility’s drive-in dock enables flatbed trucks to move fully loaded onto the floor for more convenient unloading. “All of these features position us well to reduce lead times on delivery and enhance support to our customers,” said Mike Ortolano, co-owner of Absolute Haitian. “The expansion of the automotive sector, presence of white goods manufacturing and fast regional growth in the southeast were major considerations,” added co-owner Nate Smith.

Absolute Haitian is the exclusive sales and service partner in the US and Canada for Haitian, which is the world’s largest supplier of plastics injection moulding machinery, shipping more than 35,000 machines in 2017. Its products are sold in more than 130 countries. In 2018, the injection moulding machinery manufacturer's revenues rose by 6.5% to about CNY 10.9 bn (EUR 1.43 bn).
