Using state-of-the-art production technology, the new plant will manufacture complete plastic piping systems for a wide variety of applications, including plumbing and heating. Tailor-made Swiss quality and local training for customers ensure a unique offering for the Chinese market. “The inauguration of our tenth plant for GF Piping Systems in China underscores our determination to continue growing in this country,” said Martin Huber, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Georg Fischer, at the inauguration ceremony in mid-August. GF Piping Systems has been manufacturing in China since 1998. Last year, two new factories of the joint venture GF Chinaust near Shanghai started up production. Georg Fischer has invested a total of RMB 58 million (CHF 9 million) in the new Beijing facility.
