Azbil’s production subsidiary in Dalian

Azbil Corporation announced that Azbil Control Instruments (Dalian) Co., Ltd., Azbil’s production subsidiary in Dalian, China, will construct a new factory building to further expand the volume of and strengthen global production as part of Azbil’s business expansion worldwide. Construction is scheduled to be completed in 2022. 
The Azbil Group established Azbil Control Instruments (Dalian) in 1994 as its first overseas production base and then followed with the establishment of Azbil Production (Thailand) Co., Ltd. in 2013. Then in 2019, to strengthen global production, Azbil coordinated the capabilities of its Shonan factory with those of its Fujisawa Technology Center, the company’s R&D facility, into a “mother factory” a factory whose processes can be applied as best practices to other factories. The company is building up the three production centers in Japan, China, and Thailand. In terms of overall production, overseas sites accounted for 11% of Azbil’s production volume in 2011 and approximately 25% in 2019. Azbil is looking to increase that to 35% in 2025.
Azbil Control Instruments (Dalian) has steadily improved its production capabilities in the quarter-century since its establishment. It produces a high-mix low-volume array of mechanical products that require advanced manufacturing ability, such as industrial control valves, valve positioners, and limit switches.
The new factory building aims to improve production capability that can respond to increasing global demand as well as make production processes more advanced and even more automated.
