Kimball's (KBALB) subsidiary Kimball Electronics Group has celebrated the grand opening of its new manufacturing facility in Nanjing.
The Nanjing facility is a state of the art electronics manufacturing facility, which will complement Kimball Electronics' existing global footprint of operations and build products supporting the industrial, medical and automotive marketplace.
The Nanjing facility will provide printed circuit board assembly, system subassembly, and final product assembly to KEG customers. In addition to the manufacturing of electronic assemblies, the Nanjing site will also provide engineering services along with supply chain support for all KEG facilities.
"We are very excited to have our China facility operational and have the ability to support the requests from our customers for China production," stated Don Charron, President of Kimball Electronics Group. "The engineering and manufacturing expertise of the Nanjing facility will enable us to better serve our growing base of customers."
Kimball began hiring the management team for its China operation last year and currently has 48 employees. Kimball made the decision to develop the China operation to strengthen its global responsiveness to customers and to add manufacturing capabilities for the automotive and industrial equipment industries.
