Printing and marketing solutions provider Wright Global Graphics, headquartered in Thomasville, North Carolina, has expanded its manufacturing operations in China.
The company’s new 32,000-square-foot factory in Guangdong province is 52% larger than its previous facility there, the company said in a news release. The plant remains in the city of Foshan in the Shunde district, one of the largest furniture wholesale markets and distribution centers in China.
“Over the past five years, we’ve seen a significant increase in orders from our Asian partners,” said Greg Wright, president and chief executive officer. “The opportunity in the Asian market is tremendous, and the larger factory space allows us to increase our capacity and expand our capabilities in the growing marketplace.”
The expansion enables the company to broaden its services to include weaving, finishing (both laser and hot knife), dye sublimination, embroidery, offset and flexo printing, as well as cut and sew.
Although products manufactured in the China facility are primarily for the Asian market, Wright also will be able to shift overflow orders from the United States as demand warrants, the company said.
