Uli Behringer chose his recent Partner Event 2010 (February 24th to 27th) to announce his plans for a new 'Behringer City' manufacturing plant, where all of the Behringer and Bugera products will be made, as well as a good amount of Midas Klark Teknik's overseas manufacturing programme.
Eurotec, the official name of the manafacturing business within the newly formed The Music Group holding company, which umbrellas Behringer, Bugera, Midas and Klark Teknik, is currently situated just outside the city of Zhongshang and is a leasehold site. The new facility will be wholly owned by The Music Group, will cover some 640 acres of land and will be operational initially from 2011.
The site will feature its own power plant, and extensive leisure facilities for the nearly 3,000-strong workforce, which lives on site.
The factories will include space for the implementation of Midas Klark Teknik's exacting requirements for manufacturing, allowing the company to move some of its more specialised processes away from the UK for the first time.
