Leybold Tianjin Factory

German company Leybold is a pioneer of vacuum technology. They offer a wide range of vacuum components, standardized and fully customized vacuum solutions, as well as vacuum technology accessories and instrumentation.


In Tianjin (China’s fourth largest city, with its 16 million inhabitants) Leybold operates a modern production facility. They wanted the world to know how this China facility combines German knowhow with local dedication and smarts. That is why they asked Manitoba to make this movie. The end result uses a creative metaphor to make its case: each of the different advantages of this Chinese factory is linked to a specific animal of the Chinese zodiac.
