In 2019, ULVAC Inc. pumped its investment into the construction of a new plant in Jiangbei, Ningbo. With the C.S.I. Group’s backing, and the strong support from the staff across the Group and the construction unit, we overcame the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the rising building materials price, early to completion and move to the new location as planned and per budget without dissolving or disrupting the business organization. We believe the opening ceremony can be the launchpad for the further development of ULVAC (Ningbo) Co., Ltd.
ULVAC Inc. industries and their applications cover energy, electron, new display technologies, semiconductor devices, environmental protection, pharmaceutical, and household appliance, etc., and has almost 30 years of a good relationship with C.S.I. Group. President Iwashita made the special trip to Ningbo, originally planned to attend the 8th Export Technology Forum of ULVAC Inc. Japan, and hold the opening ceremony of the new plant and the contract-signing ceremony of the training of highly-skilled personnel base. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the opening ceremony was simplified, and a series of activities were postponed.
