Globe Union Announces Move of Manufacturing Facilities Due to Local Chinese Government Urban Development Plans

Taichung, Taiwan, July 11, 2022/PRnewswire – Globe Union Industrial Corp., the parent company of the U.S.-based Gerber Plumbing Fixtures, announces that its faucet manufacturing in Fuyong, Shenzhen, China, will be moved to a facility located in Machong, Guangdong, China. This decision is a result of plans made by the district government of Shenzhen to urbanize the area around Globe Union’s faucet manufacturing facility, which include a road that will be built directly through the Company’s current Fuyong facility.

This new manufacturing site will focus on the business’s core manufacturing competencies, while leveraging its supply chain partners’ strengths and efficiencies. The transition will take place over the next 15 months in alignment with the timeline provided by the local government in Shenzhen.
