Large order for Yadon
by Hans Diederichs
Schuler's Chinese subsidiary Yadon has received a major order from a Central Asian household appliance manufacturer. The order placed by the customer from Uzbekistan comprises a total of 17 C-frame, monoblock, tie-rod and high-speed presses for the production of heat exchanger plates for air conditioning systems as well as parts for washing machines, refrigerators, gas cookers and gas counters. Yadon delivered the first two 630 ton presses in less than four months after receipt of the order.
"Presses from each of our three product groups are represented in the order," reports Liang Cheng, Chief Strategy Officer at Yadon. "We have established a very good business relationship with the customer over the past years. This positive experience prompted him to give us this major order. In addition, we offer a much wider range of products at Yadon than many other competitors in China.”
Because Uzbekistan is difficult to reach by sea from Yadon's headquarters in Yangzhou in eastern China, the two machines were transported to the customer by heavy goods vehicles overland. The Schuler subsidiary also achieved record speeds in the commissioning of presses and automation: After just four weeks, production could start.
