In China, multiple large orders from six major customers in the logistics sector are reasons to celebrate. At SNBC, however, it initially caused a headache. The orders were for the production of automatic packing stations, and the contracts were scheduled to run for several years. The company's in-house sheet metal processing capacity was insufficient, and even contracting out to all nearby contract manufacturers would not have solved the problem. But refusing the order was also not an option, so only one possibility remained: building a new factory.
From the outset of this project, SNBC did not want to do anything halfway. Their vision was for fully automated production. According to the company, expertise and complete reliability are required to implement this project in the shortest possible time. "Both of these qualities had been demonstrated by TRUMPF many times in our company. We therefore quickly agreed to work with TRUMPF", says Liu Bo, Production Manager at SNBC.
