Vernay opens a new manufacturing location in China to serve local customers.
Atlanta, Georgia, September 4, 2012 – Vernay announced the newest addition to their manufacturing facility family. Vernay Manufacturing Co., Ltd. Suzhou, China opened in early 2011 and is a now fully operational manufacturing plant that mirrors the production capability and quality standards of their other manufacturing locations in the US, The Netherlands and Italy. The Suzhou team has achieved the certifications for ISO9001-2008, TS16949 and the ISO TS.
The new plant is part of their global - local strategic initiative that brings engineering resources, sales support and manufacturing to common geographic areas providing global resource coordination through a local contact.
