Growing environmental restrictions, urban expansion and governmental industry mandates on the location of manufacturing plants have significantly changed the dynamics of where facilities can be located in China.
As western companies evaluate their China-based manufacturing operations in light of the China and global markets and are forced to relocate or close ageing plants, companies and their key Chinese suppliers are increasingly faced with more stringent rules on Site Selection, Location Strategy, Plant Construction, Plant Relocation and Plant Closure.
A U.S. manufacturing company must understand how recent changes to environmental enforcement, urban renewal, labor migration trends, industrial business park regulations and tax incentives are impacting the location and operations of both their China-based manufacturing plants and those of their key Chinese-based suppliers.
To assist companies in this complex decision-making process, the EWA Webinar “Plant Location Changes in China” will cover the following topics:
- Comprehensive review of the key drivers affecting a company’s current decision-making about Location Strategy, Site Selection, Plant Construction, Plant Relocations & Plant Closure
- Impacts on a company’s financial and operational decision-making related to plant location change in China, including supply chain disruption and operational cost increases
- Learn from EWA’s two case studies on Wisconsin- and Ohio-based manufacturers who successfully relocated and closed China-based operations
East West Associates (EWA) has significant experience operating on-the-ground in China and will lead the discussion. The speakers are:
- Mr. Dan McLeod, EWA Director and former Director of Asia Pacific Operations for Ashland Specialty Ingredients and Hercules, Inc. in Shanghai
- Mr. Jay Hoenig, EWA Director and former Asia Pacific Vice President and General Manager of Bechtel Corporation in Shanghai
Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions during the webinar.
