aft chinaAFT Inc. has announced the opening of a new manufacturing facility in China -- Jiaxing AFT Manufacturing Co., Ltd. The facility is located in Zhejiang Province, west of Shanghai, on the Hangzhou Bay near an excellent transportation network of highways, railways, and shipping lanes.

Jiaxing AFT Manufacturing will serve the dynamically growing pulp and paper market in China and joins the network of other AFT manufacturing centers in Canada, Finland, and South Korea.

Activities at the Chinese facility include the production of performance components (for screening and refining systems) as well as equipment rebuilds for screens, refiners and pulpers.

In addition to its performance components, AFT offers systems and equipment for fiber processing (virgin and recycled fiber) including screens, refiners, stock preparation, and paper machine approach flow.

According to company officials, the Chinese organization will be an area for investment over the next few years as capacity is added and capabilities of the site are expanded.

To support the new facility, a website www.aftzhongguo.com has been recently launched.
