SIG Combibloc, a Swiss aseptic packaging solution supplier, is a typical example of overseas companies succeeding in a fast expansion in SIP.
SIG Combibloc came to develop in SIP in 2002, starting with a plant which has thus far developed into a complex for manufacturing, R&D, marketing and services.
The company invested more than RMB 320 million in 2018 to build a facility incorporating R&D center, training center, workshops for assembly of filling machines and labs for product testing in the area. Besides, it has been upgrading its facilities and operation mechanisms relying on smart technologies.
Despite the negative impact of COVID-19, the company’s branch in SIP has fulfilled two orders worth RMB 20 million from Brazil and Thailand so far this year, which should be attributed in part to the local authorities’ policy support. It is now planning to further optimize its business chain in SIP.
