IMI CCI Korea opens world-class £8m facility
Division:IMI Critical Engineering
IMI CCI Korea opened its new £8m facility at Paju, a city in South Korea, less than six months after the ground breaking ceremony. Over 60 customers and 20 government officials attended the opening hosted by Mark Selway, Chief Executive of IMI plc, who said:
“We have all the right ingredients for success in Korea – a business-friendly environment, a history of strong growth and most importantly, a passionate workforce who made all the efforts to be the very best in their industry.”
The new 20,000 square metre facility is a third larger than IMI CCI’s previous site in Korea, and will provide the capability of manufacturing larger valve sizes in-house, of up to 42”, as well as enhancing welding and testing capabilities. It will also provide a significantly improved and safer working environment for employees.
After a traditional opening ceremony, which featured Korean drumming, tree planting and ribbon cutting, customers and guests were treated to a factory tour.
