Livart builds state-of-art factory
Chinese manufacturer Livart Marine has completed a three-year project to build new offices and production facilities in Heyuan City, Guangdong. CEO, Leo Woo, said the aim for Livart Marine Park was to create “Asia’s largest and greenest floating pontoon factory.”Officially running in early 2022 after passing government and Environmental Protection Department inspections, the factory operates with a computerised automatic cutting machine that cuts aluminium at high speed. This is ideal for the manufacture of aluminium floating pontoons, access walkways, gangways, floating platforms, pile guides and other related marine products and parts.
The factory has over 15 types of modern production and testing equipment, including computerised CNC engraving machines, automatic and laser lighting control cutting machines for long and short materials, advanced MIG/TIG welding machines, heavy-duty cranes etc. To date, more than 2,000 floating pontoon sections have been supplied to customers, with an annual output value exceeding US$70 million. The total production area covers 15,000m² (161,000ft²), providing generous space for processing medium and large sized aluminium alloy products.
One of Livart’s great strengths is its patented heavy-duty double-slot aluminium profile pontoon system, made using an exclusive mould, and offering a design live load that can reach 5KPA/m². This expertise is combined with design innovation.
Realising that aesthetics are more important than ever to marina customers, Livart combines architectural style into its pontoon railing designs. The CNC engraving machines produce high precision patterns and sizes when processing aluminium plate, and these carved patterned plates not only meet customers’ demands for decoration but can also highlight or reflect the characteristics of local buildings.
As a certified welder with more than 15 years of working experience, Leo Woo is leading his team to build top quality fully-welded bridges and frames with the same attention to detail as master craftsmen.
