Company Overview

Our History
Essex Asia Pacific was established in March 2005 and started plans for a greenfield factory in the Suzhou High-Tech New District (SND) Industrial Park. In January 2006, ground was broken on the new facility and by October 2006 all equipment was installed and commissioning was complete. Magnet wire operations started in November 2006. In 2010, we acquired an enamel company in Changzhou and renamed IVA Changzhou. Installed capacity is currently around 12,000MT/year of high quality enamel – 70% ownership.
