Taylor Wharton have recently celebrated the grand opening of the company's new cryogenic manufacturing operations near Beijing, China.

The new facility will produce a wide range of large cryogenic bulk tanks for the Asian and Pacific markets. As part of the company's plans for expansion the manufacturing capacity of the new factory is expected to more than double the throughput of the previous plant. The new factory is also ideally located approximately 50 km (31 miles) southeast of Beijing and benefits from a close proximity to the nearby Tianjin port complex.

The new plant is also designed to take advantage of major highways linking the plant to the port and other major Chinese cities. President James E. Cline commented, $quot;our new facility has a significantly increased lift capability and substantially larger high-bay capacity.$quot; Mr. Cline also noted that, $quot;these infrastructure
improvements will allow Taylor-Wharton Beijing to manufacture some of the largest cryogenic tanks in the Asia/Pacific region and further leverage the company's status as one of China's market leaders for cryogenic vessels engineered and constructed in conformance with the
industry's most stringent international standards.$quot;
