Cama completes Asian packaging machinery facilities in Shanghai
The Cama Group has made a major investment into a new R&D and manufacturing centre for its packaging machinery in Shanghai, China, meeting increased demand for its equipment.
The company said the move represents a key milestone for its operations in Asia, with the firm having been present in the region since 2013 with an after sales and service office.
As the business noted, the heightened level of interest in its services in Chinese markets had led to a realisation that a localised production facility would be required in the country.
Its range includes a number of packaging systems devised for the confectionery and bakery sectors, with a high degree of focus on advanced automised features developed for equipment efficiency.
The move comes amid further expansion of the business, with major plans for a new headquarters progressing in Italy, which will enable a major upturn in production output.
“The Shanghai Hub is Cama’s third global manufacturing center. Since 1981 – the date of its foundation – Cama has never stopped developing and fine tuning its high technology solutions and strengthening the support it delivers to all markets around the world. Something that has been reflected by our growing market share,” explains Daniele Bellante, CEO Cama Group
“Shanghai is the economic centre of China and offers a strong international background,” Bellante continues. “The region offers an excellent supplier base, robust supply chains, convenient transportation and a high level of well-qualified people, making it the perfect base of operations for our new R&D manufacturing center.”
“The goal of our new Chinese operation is to develop a new range of machines specifically designed and adapted to the precise needs of the Asian market. This new machine series will be called CCM – Cama China Manufacturing,” explains Ke Da, General Manager of Cama Asia.
