Ross vice president of corporate operations Joseph Martorana announced that the company’s operations in Wuxi, China has added 30,000 sq ft of manufacturing space and increased man power to more than 165 full-time employees.
This recent expansion enables Ross Wuxi Equipment Company, Ltd to more efficiently handle a surge in new orders from various process industries –- particularly from Chinese battery producers.
Even with the increased manufacturing capability, Ross Wuxi, headed by general manager George Lu, is poised for more rapid growth. Plans to relocate to a bigger facility are underway with the construction of a new 200,000-sq-ft manufacturing plant expected to begin in 2016.
