Located in the port city of Nantong, the new plant includes four buildings, covering more than 200,000 square feet. The facility will now serve as the base of operations for more than 300 of the company's employees, who will support the company's manufacturing, quality control, engineering and supply chain management activities in the region.

"Although the global economy has not completely recovered from the recession, we've invested heavily in a huge, new production facility," said James Klausmann II, Kinedyne's executive vice president. "Our philosophy has always been to take an aggressive approach to our company's future. My father founded the company four decades ago, and we didn't grow to reach a leadership position in our market segment by being timid."

The new facility will support efforts to standardize a broad range of the company's products for a variety of global markets. The new facility was also built as part of an effort to expand the company's capacity to manufacture numerous subcomponents used to build various Kinedyne products. The Nantong facility will add new capacity related to metal products, as well as expanding on existing operations.
