On March 30, 2020, KEDA held the launching ceremony of “Digital manufacturing base” in Shilong industrial park, Shunde district, Foshan city.
When addressing the ceremony, Mr. Bian Cheng, Chairman of KEDA, said that though our overseas salesmen could not visit customers due to the global pandemic, overseas orders still increased slightly in the first quarter than last year and kept rising, therefore, a new manufacturing base is needed to meet the overseas demand.
The “Digital manufacturing base” has a total investment of 78.5 million USD, 110 million USD of sales and 7 million USD of tax after reaching target output in the future.
During the outbreak of novel coronavirus epidemic, there are more than 100 employees of KEDA still working overseas. Meanwhile, KEDA not only offered them enough materials for epidemic prevention, but also donated over 100,000 masks with CE certification to overseas customers in need, especially Italian colleagues.
The new base is the 4th plant in Shunde of KEDA, mainly used for R&D and production of intelligent ceramic equipment.
It is with an area of 51,600 square meters, a three-story workshop with total height 24m, a complete set of advanced processing equipment including welding robots, laser cutters and IT control system, etc.
The project will enlarge production capacity to meet the fast-growing demand in overseas market and accelerate the progress of KEDA globalization.
