JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
Global custom engineered thermoplastics compounder RTP Company announced it has opened a technical center in Shenzhen, China. The facility will focus on providing technical support and color functions along with production of select products that are critical in meeting the rapid product development cycle demands of global OEMs and product designers in southern China and Hong Kong.
"RTP Company is committed to having our engineers, whose technical expertise our customers regularly call upon during their product development, available on a regional basis around the world," said Hugh Miller, President and CEO of RTP Company.
The 2,400 m2 (25,800 sq. ft.) Shenzhen Technical Center will house full-service color development and material evaluation laboratories to facilitate rapid product development. It will also serve as a regional hub for RTP Company's product development engineers, technical service engineers, and CAE analysts.
In addition to on-site engineers and labs, a key asset is the technical center's ability to produce custom engineered compounds along with color and additive masterbatches. "Our new Shenzhen Technical Center will enable RTP Company to have short lead times for engineered samples and custom color matches, allowing our customers to bring their products to market faster," said Johnson Goh, Shenzhen Technical Center Operations Manager.
The Shenzhen Technical Center is RTP Company's second facility in China and third in Asia. The addition brings the company's worldwide network of production facilities to a dozen. Other locations in Asia include Suzhou, China and Singapore.
