Lord Corp., Cary, NC, recently moved into its new plant located in Shanghai, China.
The facility, located at 9 Luo Gong Road in the Shanghai Chemical
represents the first phase of the company’s expansion plans. The
6,037-square-meter plant was built to accommodate the rapid growth of LORD
products, particularly the LORD Chemlok®Adhesives product line.
The new location replaces LORD Corp.’s existing facility
located in Zhang Jiang, Shanghai,
and expands production capacity as much as three times. More than 10 process
improvements have been made to the new facility, including an advanced foam
fire suppression system with a centralized computer controlled system for
monitoring and controlling most aspects of the manufacturing system, which can
simultaneously shut down all processing equipment, pumps and solvent valves in
the event of an accident.
