Electrolube, the global electro-chemicals specialist, welcomed visitors to a grand opening of its new 8,800-square-metre manufacturing facility in Zhuji, in the Zhejiang province of China, on the 23rd August. Many guests including leaders of local Government, clients and distributors attended the special occasion to celebrate the growing success of Electrolube in China. Key speeches were given by the Group Managing Director, Ron Jakeman, the newly appointed CEO and Vice President of HK Wentworth’s Asia operation, Sharon Zhang, and one of Electrolube’s long-standing distributors.
HK Wentworth’s Asian operation has now moved from its former Beijing-based manufacturing facility, where it has been situated since 2002, to the new state-of-the-art manufacturing site in Zhuji. The extensive relocation comes as a result of the company’s phenomenal growth in China over the past 17 years. In line with HK Wentworth’s strategic objectives to take Electrolube China to the next level of growth and development, the new factory houses 5 floors and provides enormous capacity to expand the manufacturing capability of Electrolube products, which include Conformal Coatings, Thermal Management Materials, Encapsulation Resins, Contact Lubricants, Cleaning Solutions and Service and Maintenance Aids.
