SUPOR Kitchen & Bath Co., Ltd ("SUPOR Kitchen & Bath"), a subsidiary of China SUPOR Group, has recently announced the world’s largest stainless steel faucet plant, which began production in 2012, entering a stable mass production stage. The company also announced that it will attend the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in Las Vegas, U.S.A, from February 4-6, 2014 (Booth 3067).
Supor worked with global automation leader ABB, Tsinghua University and other domestic and international authoritative research agencies over nearly five years, reforming processes four times, scrapping nearly 1 million faucets and investing nearly USD 80 million. Finally, Supor achieved major breakthroughs in stainless steel machining, brazing, polishing and other processes and accomplished many “firsts” for the global stainless steel faucet industry. For instance, the machining precision of stainless steel has reached 0.02mm. It is the first time for the sanitary industry to adopt the world’s leading, laser welding and solid-melt brazing technologies, which are accurate and efficient, stable and natural. Supor is first in the industry to realize mass industrial production through 100% robot polishing, 20 times more efficient than mature workers. Supor plans to build automatic polishing production lines with more than 1,100 robots to thoroughly realize the transformation of the sanitary industry from traditional labor intensive to technology intensive.
Supor plans to invest USD0.50 billion. It had invested over USD 0.32 billion by the end of 2013, and built 11 automatic production lines with production capacity of 0.7 million stainless steel faucet sets per month. Total annual capacity will be 48 million after project completion, with a total 54 automatic production lines.
In 2013, DT Group, Roca, Laufen, Homewerks, Franke, Delta, Kohler, Wolseley, PJH and other famous enterprises visited Supor’s Shenyang factory, and some established strategic partnerships with Supor.
