SPX Corporation today announced that it has signed a multi-year agreement to develop a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Tianjin.
The new operation will be developed in cooperation with Tianjin Economical Development Area (TEDA) and will employ over 200 people dedicated to production of advanced Single Row Air Cooled Condenser (ACC) technology.
