Huayan grows its PET machine business in Asia

Guangdong-based Huayan Precision Machinery that manufactures PET preform moulds and PET preform injection moulding systems, which serve a wide range of PET packaging applications, expects further growth in South Korea, having sold ten PET preform injection moulding systems over the past few years, according to Louis Zhou from the International Business Department, speaking to IMA during the recent Koplas exhibition in Seoul, South Korea.

The company, which is competing head on with PET preform machine makers like Canadian machine maker Husky Injection Molding, boasts 128-cavity systems, two of which it has sold in Saudi Arabia, as well as 96-cavity moulds. It sold eight 96-cavity units in Turkey, recently, said Zhou.

While it may want to expand its market in South Korea, Zhou says the biggest market for its PET preform systems is still Indonesia, where the PET water bottle market is flourishing. “We sold a 96-cavity system recently and have in the past also sold 48 and 72-cavity systems,“ he added.

Set up in 2002, Huayan averages a sales volume of up to US$20 million and exports 25% of its output. It claims that its capacity can reach up to 200 machines/year at its newly built factory with 37,000 sq m of space at the Zengcheng District in Guangzhou. It has also sold 350 machines all over the world.

At the upcoming Chinaplas show in May, the company will exhibit a newly developed fast speed machine for producing PET preforms for 5 gallon PET bottles. The machine on show will be processing a preform with a weight of 695 g in a six-cavity mould and a cycle time of 69 seconds.
