Belden Opens Connector Plant in China

Belden Inc., a specialist in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, has begun producing industrial connectors in China. A new plant in Suzhou, in the eastern Jiangsu Province, was officially opened on June 23, putting the company in a strong position to capitalize on growth opportunities in key markets across the whole of the Asia-Pacific. Belden says it will also increase its leadership in high quality end-to-end signal transmission solutions.

The company is now better placed to provide its global customers with a comprehensive range of differentiated products, technology and services that provide uninterrupted high performance. Belden’s Industrial Connector Business Division already has four production bases in Europe and America; the creation of this fifth operation is set against a background of high demand in the Asia-Pacific market and the company’s strong emphasis on China in particular.

Products tailored specifically for the Chinese market will be launched in the next few months, in line with Belden’s commitment to meeting personalized requirements of its customers.

Ashish Chand, managing director of Industrial Solutions for Belden in APAC, says the establishment of the new base is a very important step in the company's localization strategy. Chinese customers will benefit from shorter lead times as well as from local technical services, he says. “The operation is of particular importance for Belden in providing complete industrial communication products and solutions in key markets,” he told participants at the opening ceremony.

The Suzhou operation will have quality management systems complying with the ISO 9000 standard, in line with Belden’s existing plants. All production equipment has been imported from Europe, and products will obtain UL certification in China.
