Ross Expands China Operations
Ross Vice President of Corporate Operations Joseph Martorana announced that the company’s operations in Wuxi, China has added 30,000 square feet of manufacturing space and increased man power to more than 165 full time employees. This recent expansion enables Ross Wuxi Equipment Co., Ltd. to more efficiently handle a surge in new orders from various process industries, particularly from Chinese battery producers.
Even with the increased manufacturing capability, Ross Wuxi, headed by General Manager George Lu, is poised for more rapid growth.
