As a result, MNF has built up a good reputation in Chinese market.

In order to respond to Taicang’s municipal planning request, MNF has been relocated this time. The new location lies in the Taicang Demonstration Park of Sino-German Small and Medium-sized Enterprises. MNF is within the name list of the 1st batch relocation enterprises there. The new location of MNF marks a prosperous start for its further business expansion. The size of the new location has doubled and the production line has further expanded. In addition to continue focusing on heavy industry, MNF will launch new business in terms of various market segments with more spacious workshops and more reasonable space planning.
