WIKA Suzhou will work to introduce more competitive advanced technologies to increase the competitiveness of its semiconductor supply chain and build WIKA's production base, functional headquarters, and research and development center in the Asian-Pacific region.
WIKA Instrument, LP is the leading global manufacturer of pressure and temperature measurement instrumentation. Established in 1997, WIKA Instrumentation (Suzhou) Co Ltd mainly produces and sells thermometers and pressure meters.

WIKA Suzhou plans to increase its capacity for scientific research and innovation to contribute to SND's modern industrial system, Liu added.
