LHE, a South Korean company within the Alfa Laval Group, will close its Chinese manufacturing operations and move the production of heat exchangers from Qingdao, China, to its existing site in Busan, South Korea.

When making the announcement, the company indicated that it planned to close the site in Qingdao by end of April 2015. The change will affect about 40 employees. Only LHE’s manufacturing in Qingdao is affected by this initiative. Alfa Laval’s remaining production in Qingdao remains unchanged.
