16.06.2011 News: ContiTech Takes Over Chinese Conveyor Belt Maker on June 1, 2011

ContiTech is beefing up its position in China: On June 1, 2011, the Northeim, Germany-based ContiTech Conveyor Belt Group takes over the conveyor belt operations of Tianjin Xinbinhai Conveyor Belt Co., Ltd., Tianjin. On May 28, 2011 Claus Peter Spille, head of the mining world segment, and Dr. Hongbin Dong, the future general manager of Tianjin Xinbinhai Conveyor Belt, signed the contracts closing the deal with the local sellers. Both sides have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

"This move gives us a new market in an up-and-coming region and strengthens ContiTech’s position in China," says Hans-Jürgen Duensing, general manager of the ContiTech Conveyor Belt Group. “We already manufacture conveyor belts for industrial applications at a number of locations worldwide. Now we can supply the Chinese market with products made right in the country. We are set to further expand the plant.”

Situated in the port city of Tianjin, 120 kilometers southeast of Beijing, the plant produces mainly conveyor belts for metal and cement processing and mining, as well as for power plants, port operations and the automotive industry. It has a workforce of around 150.

ContiTech has been active in China already for 30 years. ContiTech currently produces hose line systems, vibration components, air springs, surface materials, conveyor belts, drive belts, coated fabrics and other components and systems locally at nine modern production plants. It is thus able to very successfully serve the needs of automakers, machine and plant engineering and construction, mining, the printing industry, and rail transportation. ContiTech presently has 2.100 employees in China.
