BEIJING, Dec. 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NIU Technologies (“NIU”, or “the company”) (NIU), the world’s leading provider of smart urban mobility solutions, has recently put into operation the newly built global R&D and manufacturing facility in Changzhou, China.

The new facility covers about 75 acres and has a designed capacity of 700,000 units per annum.  NIU installed four semi-automatic assembly lines, one highly efficient double-decker logistics facility, a products showroom, and a dedicated quality control laboratory in the new factory.  The quality control laboratory is equipped with full-automatic and semi-automatic instruments for components testing, and self-developed inspection systems for battery cell quality testing.
