5 Star Group is please to announce the opening of 5 Star Cases – China, a new manufacturing facility to bolster its UK operation.
5 Star Cases China, based in Fenggang Town – Dongguan City has been set up to provide high quality cases to the domestic market as well as seeking further OEM customers in the Guangdong region and around the world. The new site is currently undergoing machinery and production facilities installation but will only take a few weeks to be fully operational.
One of the first installations was a new large-format CNC machining centre. This has a fully automatic load-unload system, together with an upgraded Italian HSD spindle with 8 position tool-changer carousel and vacuum hold down table. The UK team will support the initial phase of CAD drawings but the China facility will eventually produce all CAD-CAM related documents.
5 Star Cases UK have partnered with James Zhang, a well respected businessman from Fenggang, with many years experience in the design and manufacture of high quality travel and leisure bags, from his large manufacturing plant which is in close proximity to the new 5 Star Cases factory in Zhutang Village, Fenggang. James will manage the factory on a daily basis with close support from the UK.
During a recent visit to the new facility by the 5 Star UK’s Managing Director Keith Sykes and Operations Manager Ingus Lasinskis, the site’s production area was ready for the start of machinery installation, whilst the administration areas had already been completed. Initial training of new staff members was also carried out.
