BTU International today announced the shipment of the 3000th thermal processing system from its manufacturing plant in Shanghai, China. BTU opened the facility in China in February of 2004.

Located in the Waigaoqiao Free Trade Zone in Pudong, China, the plant has been expanded a number of times since opening. In 2008, BTU added a Solar Applications Lab to the site. This unique lab — which helps BTU's customers test and develop new processes while experiencing the advantages offered by BTU technology — has proven to be a key enabler for our customers.

"We are certainly proud of our China facility and the global teamwork that has enabled our success there. Being physically located in the region has allowed us to respond more quickly to our customers in China and the rest of Asia," said Paul van der Wansem, chairman and CEO of BTU International. "We have a long-term commitment to the region and it is a key part of our plans for continued growth in the future."

BTU has had a direct sales and service presence in China since 1995. In 2009, the Shanghai facility earned ISO 9001:2008 certification ensuring adherence to the highest quality standards.
