First announced in May 2018, the facility located, near Charleston, will provide for expanded sales, applications, service, and training functions.
Injection molding machine supplier Absolute Haitian Corp. will officially open its new 116,000-square-foot operations facility in Moncks Corner, S.C. on May 30.
The opening ceremony will include a plant tour, machine technology demonstrations, and Q&A sessions with Absolute Haitian engineers.
First announced in May 2018, the facility – which is located just outside of Charleston – will provide for expanded sales, applications, service, and training functions. In addition, the facility adds new capacity and capabilities in the areas of assembly, test and customer demonstration of large tonnage machines and work cells.
“The new plant will provide enough space for stock machines and will allow us to pursue a range of domestic machine assembly options in collaboration with Haitian, based on the needs of the market,” said Glenn Frohring, president and co-owner of Absolute Haitian.
“The selection of the Charleston area was driven by many factors,” Absolute Haitian co-owner Nate Smith said. “These included expansion of the automotive and manufacturing sectors in the southeast region and access to Charleston’s deepwater port. Although other states in the region were considered, the State of South Carolina and the regional economic development groups made the selection an easy one.”
The South Carolina expansion comes quickly on the heels of a major infrastructure project at Absolute Haitian’s headquarters in Worcester, Mass., that is now completed. Haitian International recently completed expansions in Mexico with a grand opening of a technical support centre in Tijuana. Additional service centres in Mexico are in the planning stages.
Absolute Haitian is the exclusive sales and service partner of Chinese injection molding machine maker Haitian International. The company is represented in eastern Ontario by Larry Bonehill of Shadow Automation and in western Ontario by Steve Bell; and in Quebec by Barway Plastics Equipment.
