Concentric's Chinese coolant pump for major tractor manufacturer
Concentric Suzhou, a subsidiary of Concentric AB, is to supply diesel engine coolant pumps under a contract worth over $3million pa to the Chinese operation of one of the world's leading manufacturers of agricultural equipment.
The pump will be manufactured at Concentric's plant in Suzhou and assembled to a front engine cover for the customer's mid-range engine. The engines are to be used in tractors for the Chinese market, so the Concentric pump assemblies offer the advantage of local supply as well as increasing local content.
David Woolley, President and CEO of Concentric AB commented: “Our plant in Suzhou is strategically located to serve both Chinese OEMs and the many major western corporations operating in the region. The success of this project is a tribute to the skills and experience of our staff and demonstrates the confidence and commitment of one of our most important global customers.”
