Weinheim, Fermany -- Freudenberg Group said it is, in conjunction with its partner NOK Corp, expanding its sealing activities in China.
The company is currently building in Changchun, China, an exact copy of its flagship plant in Remagen, German. That way, Freudenberg and NOK can meet Volkswagen's request for local production and supply.
In Taicang, not far from Shanghai, NOK-Freudenberg Group is now entering into production of polyurethane seals with a particularly long service life. These are used in mobile hydraulic applications, for example in construction machines.
