JDR Cable Systems BV is strengthening it’s strategic position, working simultaneously on a new production facility in the region Rotterdam, The Netherlands and a service/test facility in Tianjin (near Beijing), P.R. of China.

A brand new purpose built factory in the Rotterdam district will be available for move-in first quarter of 2007. This way JDR’s Smart Solutions division will more than triple it’s current capacity up to 100 M Euro and provide opportunities to develop production capabilities that will meet or exceed the ever more demanding needs in products for the seismic and defence industries.

Concurrent investments are being made in new production machinery and extensive upgrades to existing equipment to provide further improvements to quality, efficiency and delivery times.

At the same time JDR is currently setting up it’s subdivision in Tianjin (Beijing area), in order to provide Service activities, such as termination assembly/repair and testing cable system applications.

The Service Center China will be managed by an experienced Service Supervisor from JDR Netherlands, who is releaved of his duty, to devote himself permanently setting up this new business unit.

"Continued growth in our existing markets and the introduction of successful new products around the world, has made it a necessity to move to the new facilities as soon as possible. We are fortunate in being able to build the new plant within a few kilometres of our existing factory as well as setting up a new division in China. This not only ensures continuity in our skilled work force; it will also give us the possibility to deliver high quality service with even shorter respond times." Stated Mr. Han van Veen, Managing Director of JDR Smart Solutions.
