Hayward Tyler is pleased to announce that it formally opened its new, state of the art, 3, 250m2 factory in Kunshan, Jiangsu Province, Peoples Republic of China.
Hayward Tyler, owned by Avingtrans plc, has been delivering high end equipment into China for over 40 years and has owned and operated a full scale service facility in Kunshan for the last 15 years. The service facility successfully provided local support to the installed base of over 500 Boiler Circulating Pumps (BCPs) operating in China. Hayward Tyler, the inventor of the wet wound submersible motor and the BCP, which incorporates this technology, has the biggest installed base of BCPs of any OEM globally and the largest concentration of these is in China.
As the world and China energy demand continues to increase, as reducing harmful emissions becomes increasingly important and as Chinese companies become stronger in the global market place, the opening of this factory and the ongoing localisation of Hayward Tyler’s capability is key strand to the business’ global strategy. The new factory will provide existing Chinese customers with an enhanced local service capability as well as manufacturing a wider range of Hayward Tyler’s highly engineered products for the power generation, oil and gas and chemical industries, both in China and for the rest of the world.
Mike Turmelle, President of the Engineered Pumps and Motors division, said: “With the support of Avingtrans, Hayward Tyler’s vision is to bring World Class products and service to the markets we are engaged in. In China we are no longer just a high-quality service organisation. Opening this new plant allows Hayward Tyler the capability to manufacture performance critical pumps here in China and also gives Hayward Tyler the opportunity to expand our service offerings, add to our engineering talent and develop a Chinese supply chain that can benefit the whole company.”
Steve McQuillan, Avingtrans CEO, added: “Avingtrans has been investing in China for over 10 years. When we acquired Hayward Tyler in 2017, we were pleased to support the proposal to build a new factory in Kunshan and we are delighted that our third major investment in Chinese manufacturing is fully open for business”.
