Music Group Plans Big China Expansion

ZHONGSHAN, China — Pledging a total investment near $50 million, Music Group founder/CEO Uli Behringer outlined a plan for a 50-acre complex housing the company’s R&D and manufacturing operations here. Behringer projected a total of nearly 5,000 employees to be working on site, with a total 3 million square feet of automated factory space and plans for completion by 2014.

“It is my distinct pleasure to announce the fulfillment of a major objective of our Group today with the start of this incredible undertaking,” announced Uli Behringer to the gathered employees and dignitaries.

The new campus is projected to include more than 100 surface-mount machines, automated transducer lines, injection molding and hydro forming facilities and a total “cleanair” wood products and painting pavilion.

The company’s extensive agency test labs will be expanded with additional RF and TDMA facilities and an all-new two-story anechoic chamber will be built for acoustical testing. The campus will also offer housing for almost 2,000 company employees and include on-site educational, child-care and health facilities.
