“The opening of the first plant in China is a landmark event for us,” said Hans Billington, President of ILLINOIS PARQUET CO. “We've had a busy couple of years leading up to expanding our presence in different countries, and now we finally did it, and we are proud of what we have achieved.”
George Rogers is the Managing Director of ILLINOIS PARQUET CO CHINA. George explains that the construction process for the Shanghai, China plant was very long. “We had some difficulties along the way, but we achieved our goal. Our Chinese team worked very hard to get everything ready for opening.
On this wonderful day, about 200 people attended the opening, and more than 300 people took part in the international seminar that we organized on the eve. "
“ILLINOIS PARQUET CO CHINA has built a production facility in Shanghai without a Chinese partner, just like other engineering and solid floor companies have done. Our company has been supplying high-quality engineering floor to China for the past 10 years. We will produce the same quality products in our China factory, like a factory in the USA. We will do this with raw materials from all over the world and prepare a highly qualified local team that will know how to meet global standards."
The ILLINOIS PARQUET CO CHINA plant has a production capacity of 4,500,000 sq. m per year. Manufacturing is the first experience of ILLINOIS PARQUET CO. Hans Billington says: "The plant will increase our competitiveness in China by shortening delivery times to key markets." The plant will export products both to Asia and all over the world.
