Alfa Laval, Lund, Sweden, is consolidating its manufacturing of boilers in Asia to one unit in Qingdao, China. The company’s manufacturing facility in Hai Phong, Vietnam, will close during the second quarter of 2013.

 Alfa Laval acquired the manufacturing units in China and Vietnam as part of its 2011 acquisition of Aalborg Industries. According to a company spokesperson, a drop in demand for boilers triggered the move.
