ARO China move expands operations
ARO’s Chinese subsidiary, established in 2005, has recently moved its operations to a new larger facility, located in the famous Wuhan Economic and Technical Development Zone in China's Wedz district.
The new facility provides a total area of 2,700 m², including a 1,000 m² area dedicated to office space and meeting rooms, all totally customized to ARO’s requirements.
Responding to the latest stringent health and safety standards, the new premises incorporates reinforced insulation and a heating and air conditioning system connected to a geothermal heat pump for sustainable and renewable energy.
With a brand new manufacturing shop and warehouse covering 1,700m², ARO China is ready to support the growth of its products in the region conforming to the stringent quality standards required. In addition to manual and robotic guns, there is also an assembly and test capacity for welding controllers.
A new welding lab has been fully equipped with all the latest products and technologies, so even the most complex welding trials can now be performed right here in Wuhan. Advanced high strength steels and aluminium alloys, increasingly used in the automotive industry to make vehicles lighter, can be welded by experts that are regularly trained in Europe.
ARO France and USA are already certified to ISO 9001: 2015 certification with ARO China now on track to receive ISO 14001 environmental certification.
