Magma Ceramics & Catalyst capacity expansion in Vietnam
Following on from its construction of a precision ceramics manufacturing facility near Hanoi in Vietnam in 2014 Magma is significantly expanding its productive capacity with the installation of a new high temperature kiln.
The kiln will be operational in November 2015 and will triple the sites capacity.
David Collinge, Magma’s Vietnam General Manager commented “This investment means that we will be able to quickly reduce lead times and accept larger orders”
Raymond Hargreaves, Magma’s Commercial Director commented “The interest shown in our Vietnam facility has been fantastic. The combination of lower cost and industry leading quality is being well received by our customers”
Over the past 12 months Magma has concentrated on the introduction of international Quality, Environmental and Health and Safety systems. These have all now been certified by the British Standards Institute to ISO 9001,14001 and 18001.
Establishing these standards is a core element to all of Magma’s sites. These standards in combination with real time process data capture systems is allowing Magma to improve on a weekly basis.
