Eppendorf: From 2024 New Production Operation at 平湖 (浙江)

February 2023. Eppendorf Group is expanding its production operation in the Chinese market. The company signed a contract for a new production site at Pinghu, Zhejiang province where Eppendorf centrifuges will be made for the local market. The Group already generates about 15 percent of its consolidated revenue in China – and further growth is expected. Centrifuges are the primary product of Eppendorf’s Separation & Instrumentation Business Division.

The signing ceremony was attended by key members of Eppendorf’s planned Technology Center China (TCC), of the Pinghu Economic Development Zone (PEDZ) as well as local party cadres of the Chinese Communist Party (CPC).

The new location is 3km outside Pinghu in the PEDZ and some 90 km south of Shanghai. It is part of Eppendorf’s China strategy and will place the Group’s production operations closer to Chinese customers. Wilhelm Plüster, CTO of Eppendorf is convinced that “By taking this step, Eppendorf will not only strengthen its supply chains in a world filled with uncertainties but will also reduce the company’s logistics and transport costs.” The new plant is scheduled to start production in the first quarter of 2024.
