FPS Food Process Solutions opens first manufacturing & support center in China
Answering to the increasing demand from the Asian Market, FPS Food Process Solutions (FPS) announced the official opening of its new Manufacturing & Support Centre in Zhongshan, China. Zhongshan is a vibrant, blooming commercial city in the south of China.
The new facility, with 8,500 sq. m. (91,500 sq. ft.), is another strategic milestone of FPS’ global expansion plan as it further realizes its Vision - to revolutionize hygienic standards. Led by General Manager, May Lin, the Zhongshan Centre will act as a single location for sales, support services, and fabrication. In addition to the large manufacturing, warehousing and office space, the new facility will include a showcase of the industry-leading IQF Tunnel and Spiral Freezers, all with signature externally mounted motors. This location will mainly serve the China and Southeast Asian region.
“FPS has had a long-term commitment to offering the most hygienic equipment, since day one,” said Jeffrey Chang, President of FPS. “Personally, as a Chinese Canadian immigrant of over 30 years, it brings me an indescribable sense of pride to return and serve the Chinese market with the utmost hygienic solutions for the food industry.”
In terms of sanitary design, China provides a vast untapped market. Conventional systems typically aim at price-competitiveness. However, the emerging global trend is putting the focus on food safety standards, and this market is known for rapid transformation.
“In under a decade, FPS has grown to the size it is today, greatly contributed by the unfaltering belief that food safety should dictate equipment design; freezer throughput becomes insignificant when the volume of food processed is unsafe to consume, and the processor’s reputation is at stake,” stated Chang.
With this extended outfit, FPS significantly anchors its presence in Asia and creates a new space to develop and establish FPS’s innovative technology, humbly hoping to benefit the Asian food industry as a whole.
