BUTTING in China – on the German model

For decades, the name BUTTING has stood for global customer proximity and continuous presence on international markets. Since 2005 we have also been manufacturing in China, the home of economic growth. In 2011, another production plant could be opened in the north - in Tieling. The investments will expand and optimise our facilities for vessel manufacturing and the prefabrication of pipe systems and ready-to-install components.

At the Tieling location we recruit the skilled staff of the future from our own ranks. We have our own on-site "BUTTING vocational school class", following the pattern of German vocational training. The students put their theoretical knowledge into practice in a 1 000 m² apprentice workshop and in BUTTING's in-house production. Thus we are creating the conditions today for lasting and sustainable business activity in China.

Together with our long-standing colleague and partner Sun Jianwei, we offer project management services for major projects with a focus on the pulp and paper industry. Two other companies have been established in China for this business in 2019:

  • Butting International Engineering (Hong Kong) Ltd.
  • Butting Engineering management (Beijing) Co. Ltd.

Our goal is not only to offer project management and the supervision of foreign companies on construction sites, but also to provide piping, vessels and assembly services from the companies of the BUTTING Group. We currently have fifteen employees with industry expertise in our office in Beijing.

Our local presence offers us additional opportunities for new customer relationships to win new sales markets.
