Major new contract for Dürr in China

Bietigheim-Bissingen Germany, September 30, 2010 – Dürr is the general contractor in building a new paint shop in the southern Chinese city of Changsha. The client for this order is GAC Fiat, a joint venture of the Italian Fiat Group with the local automobile manufacturer Guangzhou Automobile Group. Crucial for receiving this contract was certainly Dürr's repeated proven turnkey experience in China.

The contract includes the construction of the complete paint shop: from pre-treatment and dip coating to underbody protection, and from primer to basecoat and topcoat. It also includes conveyor systems and equipment for the workspaces. In addition to drying ovens, the equipment for media production and supply as well as the factory ventilation are included the scope of services from Dürr.

16 Dürr type EcoRP L033 painting robots provide fully automatic exterior painting. Interior painting is to take place at manual workplaces that will also be delivered by Dürr along with the entire paint supply system. Dürr is equipping the UBS line with a robot station with two EcoRS 16 robots and the application technology for automatic underbody protection. Seam sealing is done manually – here as well, Dürr will provide material supply.

With this contract Dürr benefits from its international presence with a local workforce in China of around 700 employees. These are linked with Dürr's other affiliates by a uniform IT environment with Dürr's own project management software. With the contract from GAC Fiat, project teams in Germany and Italy will work together with the Chinese colleages.

The plant in Changsha works with water-based paints for the primer and base coat and will go into operation by the summer of 2012.
