Motts helps UK manufacturer build factory in China

1 Nov 13 UK heavy generator producer Brush has appointed Mott MacDonald to provide engineering, procurement, and construction management (EPCM) services for the development of a manufacturing facility in Changsu in China’s Jiangsu Province.

Brush’s generators are used in the nuclear, thermal power, industrial and oil and gas industries. The Changsu plant will be the company’s first production facility in China and will primarily serve the Chinese market. It will be developed in two phases, with the first phase consisting of a 15,000m2 single floor workshop and 1,500m2 office area.

Paul Lengthorn, Mott MacDonald’s project director, said: “We are delighted that Brush has chosen Mott MacDonald to work on its first move into China. Our knowledge of the local market has allowed us to prepare the sufficient documents and technical data quickly, while our team has vast experience of working with international companies.”

He added that the project is challenging due to its tight schedule, with completion scheduled for only 16 months from the initial company registration. Brush has also acquired land space for a potential second phase of development.
