Flying start for Alfa Laval in China 2007
Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – continues its high activity in China. The company has received three new orders for Alfa Laval Packinox custom-designed heat exchangers from Chinese customers. The order value is about SEK 180 million. Delivery will take place during 2008.
- I look upon the development in China as a confirmation of our strong local position, says Lars Renström, President and CEO of Alfa Laval Group. In December we received large orders to the petrochemical industry in China to a total value of about SEK 240 million. On top of this we have now received orders for an additional SEK 180 million.
In all cases the heat exchangers will be used in catalytic processes in the manufacture of mixed xylenes which are key raw materials for various petrochemical end products such as polyester fibres and PET plastic bottles.
