Weihai will be new home for SCI China

Sputtering Components China, an independent distributor for Sputtering Components, is moving its facilities from Shanghai to its own, larger and more modern facility in Weihai, Shandong province.

SCI China’s new facility in Weihai will have two factories and an office building. Construction is slated to begin in late spring or early summer.

A major seaport, Weihai is about 435 miles (700 km) north of Shanghai and is surrounded on three sides by the Yellow Sea. 

SCI China’s Vincent Wen said the new location will help provide its customers with reliable products available for their application, and they can better rely on the company as a long-term partner. 

“This move will allow us to expand the business coverage and also gives us the opportunity to standardize facility management, which will result in high quality products to our customers,” Wen said. 

“We plan to expand the business coverage not only for cathodes but also with plasma-related vacuum components.” 

Weihai is a place with comfortable weather, clean seaside air, a pair of economic development zones and many universities, including the campuses of Shandong University, Harbin Institute of Technology and Beijing Jiaotong University.

“We can work together with those universities,” Wen said.

The new location will help with overall business management as well. 

“After the move, we will have our own facility with most of the cost under our control,” Wen said. “Then we will have a steadier team of employees. It will give us the chance to firm the quality control and implement platform-based management with a more detailed facility.” 

The new facility will have two factories, one will be 3375 m2, and the other will be 4500 m2. It also will include a six-story office building. 

Construction is scheduled to begin in late spring or early summer 2018. 

As part of Sputtering Components’ world-wide sales and service network, Sputtering Components China has been representing Sputtering Components products since 2009. It currently has 10 employees.
