For Immediate Release

MAGUIRE ASIA EXPANDS OPERATION IN CHINA TO SUPPORT BOOMING GROWTH OF MAGUIRE® BLENDERS, DRYERS, AND OTHER SYSTEMS

Company Opens New Offices, Expands in Shanghai, Goes Online with Website in Chinese

GUANGZHOU, June 21, 2005 - With 2005 sales in China alone promising to be triple or even quadruple those of 2004, Maguire Asia has substantially increased its sales and service capabilities for Chinese customers, the company announced today at Chinaplas 2005 (Stand C 756). Chief among its initiatives are:

  • Three new offices in China. The new Beijing and Guangzhou offices provide sales, technical support, field service, and spare parts; a new office in Suzhou (west of Shanghai) will provide sales service. 
  • Expansion of Chinese head office in Shanghai. Maguire Asia has installed a new laboratory and demonstration facility with operating equipment representing the full range of Maguire materials handling systems. The expansion comes only a year after Maguire Asia opened its headquarters in Singapore and at the same time established the office in Shanghai.
  • Chinese-language Maguire website. As of June 1, it was anticipated that this site would go live by the time of the Chinaplas 2005 show. It would be linked with the website of parent company Maguire Products, Inc. at www.maguire.com

Driving this expansion is booming sales growth for the Maguire® Weigh Scale Blender, LPD™ vacuum dryer, Clear-Vu™ loading system, liquid color and additive pumps, and other equipment and related software, according to Hubert Nerlich, managing director of Maguire Asia. "Maguire technology enables plastics processors to save on operating costs and increase productivity while meeting stringent requirements for product quality and consistency," Nerlich said. "The dosing precision of our gravimetric blenders has provided a real advantage for Chinese manufacturers of products as widely different as tiny electronic connectors and high volume packaging film, and our fundamentally new vacuum dryer has begun to replace

conventional desiccant drying systems at a rapid pace. In fact, the LPD dryer is our fastest-growing equipment system in China."
