ADB's Tianjin Plant Opens

The grand opening of ADB’s new manufacturing plant in Tianjin on May 10, 2011 is a new milestone for the group as it consolidates its presence in China and the Asia Pacific region.  The new plant will rank as the group’s third-biggest manufacturing centre, supporting its supply chain management structure and further strengthening the position of ADB on the Asian market.

The opening ceremony was attended by some 150 guests from civil aviation companies, airports, design and engineering firms, main contractors, the China Airport Construction Corporation (CACC) alongside government representatives, university delegates and the Belgian Ambassador to China, Patrick Nijs.  Following the establishment of ADB Airfield Technology in Beijing in October 2009, starting up this new manufacturing plant marks an important additional step in the group’s growth strategy on the Chinese and Asian market.
The ADB Tianjin plant, located within the Tianjin Aviation Industry Development Base, is the third global manufacturing centre – after facilities in Belgium and the US – in ADB’s supply chain management structure.
