LGMG Europe has officially opened its new production facility in the Netherlands, marking the occasion with an opening ceremony that was attended by both its business partners and customers.

Said to be 10 times bigger than the company’s previous site in Spijkenisse, the new plant will allow the company to increase the speed and efficiency of its manufacturing processes. 

Guests attending the opening event were treated to a tour of the new facility, which LGMG Europe has spent the past five months renovating. The site includes offices, a state-of-the-art training centre and a full spare parts warehouse.

LGMG, which is due to introduce 10 new equipment models to its product portfolio later this year, said a new ERP (enterprise resources planning) system had also been implemented. This will enable the company to increase the availability of finished products and spare parts, and provide a faster response times and services. 

The opening ceremony was co-hosted by LGMG Sales Director of Europe, Vincent Vercaemst and Ares Song, General Manager of LGMG MEWPS, who just a few weeks ago revealed that the subsidiary’s sister company, LGMG Mexico, would begin producing boom and scissor lifts in the second half of this year following the opening of its new US$140 million facility in Monterrey.

The Mexico plant and an overall restructuring of its operations in the US are in response to the U.S. Department of Commerce and International Trade Commission’s rulings in late 2021 that imposed high import tariffs on LGMG’s products entering the US market.
