AddisonMckee announced that the new plant has completed the assembly of its seventh AddisonMckee PowerBend CNC bender, in the People’s Republic of China.
With state-of-the-art tube manipulation technology and manufacturing centres already firmly established in the United States, Great Britain and Canada, AddisonMckee chose to open a further internationally-based manufacturing facility in China to demonstrate its ongoing commitment to serving the tube manipulation needs of the Asian-based manufacturing and automotive industries and to provide a local facility for machine manufacture, distribution and consumables supply.
High quality and cost-effective:
Known as AddisonMckee China, the tube manipulation specialist’s latest operation was established in autumn 2006 in the TEDA export development zone and has assumed a leading role in the production of AddisonMckee’s recently introduced range of PowerBend hydraulic benders; high quality, yet exceptionally cost-effective models that are increasingly being sought out by customers with less sophisticated tube manipulation needs across Asia as well as North America and Europe.
Perishable bend tooling:
Wholly dedicated to supporting its local Asian customers, AddisonMckee China is also finalising plans to begin the production of perishable bend tooling. The company will provide its customer base, especially those in China, with high quality tooling of a proven design that will allow them to rely less on local manufacturers who have limited experience of manufacturing this type of specialised tooling.
Already AddisonMckee’s Chinese corporate customers, and others across Korea and S.E.A., have been receptive of the plan to provide local tool manufacturing and support and are anxiously awaiting its start-up.
Service responsibility for East Asia:
Committed to providing a complete solution, not one merely focused upon machine development and supply, AddisonMckee China has also assumed service responsibility for the whole of East Asia (China, Korea, Japan and S.E.A.) as well as sales coverage for China and S.E.A.
The division has service staff located in China and Korea, and is working with representatives in other key markets to ensure that the highest level of same day technical assistance is provided to both new and established customers.
AddisonMckee’s efforts in Asia have not gone unnoticed by its international customers. Indeed, due to its commitment to provide ‘true’ local manufacturing and after-sales support, AddisonMckee China has shipped a locally produced PowerBend 75 model to a customer who had exclusively relied on a competitor’s machinery for the past 10+ years.
About the AddisonMckee range of PowerBend tube benders:
Launched last year to satisfy the requirements of organisations with basic tube manipulation needs, AddisonMckee’s PowerBend models benefit from the tube manipulation specialist’s reputation for quality, precision and reliability, yet are offered at an exceptionally competitive price. Benefiting from years of proven design techniques, PowerBend models provide the high levels of accuracy, repeatability, prompt tool change and ease of operation as required by today’s manufacturing industries.
