Wittmann Group’s Austrian injection moulding machinery maker subsidiary Wittmann Battenfeld has secured a large order for its SmartPower and MacroPower series from Hong Kong-based household products/applicances maker Hayco. Wittmann will supply over five to ten years, 100 units of its SmartPower servo-hydraulic injection machine, MacroPower large injection machine as well as peripheral auxiliary equipment and the central feeding system.

Hayco has been manufacturing in China for over 30 years. Its three plants in Shenzhen are over 1.5 million sq ft. In August, 2015, Hayco announced that it would invest over US$50 million for a brand-new injection moulding and assembly plant in the Dominican Republic to expand its global footprint and improve deliveries to the US and Europe in the future.

The need for world class technology in this new facility and reinvestment in its existing operations in China led Hayco to partner with Wittmann and the integrated injection moulding solutions, said Wittmann in a press release.

It will supply these new high-performance machine series to Hayco for its new plant in Dominican Republic and the expansion of existing three plants in Shenzhen.

The company says its SmartPower combines the advantages of hydraulic machines with those of all-electric machines: energy efficiency, precision, user-friendliness, compact design, high speed, cleanness. The new MacroPower spans 400 to 1,600 tonnes, with servo-driven hydraulic pump a highly recommended option.

Hayco’s in-house capabilities include product design and development, mould making, extrusion & injection blow moulding, injection moulding, in-mould labelling and assembly at its three sites in China, which ship to 40 countries worldwide.

It will start up its new site in Dominican Republic in 2017

Hayco has a diverse portfolio of products, which it supplies to leading consumer brands. It has long term partnerships with companies such as CamelBak, Church & Dwight, Clorox, Kärcher, OXO, Philips, Procter & Gamble, Target, Walmart & 3M. The company supplies over 150 million consumer products a year.
