AZO Celebrates Anniversary in China
To celebrate the 10th anniversary, AZO China had organized a ceremony with displays of traditional Chinese culture such as the Beijing Opera, blue and white porcelain and diabolo. AZO then presented AZO China with a Chinese dragon made of stainless steel, which had been designed and made in Osterburken. In return, AZO was given a gift of a model made of rosewood representing an AZO system.
In 2007, AZO Germany took the decision to establish another sales and service company in China. With Jianyu Wang who had studied chemistry in China and engineering management in Germany, AZO Ltd. China found an accomplished candidate for the post of manager. The Tianjin site and adjoining TEDA special enterprise zone promised the best access with regard to logistics and infrastructure. There was a supply of available office space, it was not too complicated to set up the firm and this meant that AZO China got off to a good start in 2007.
In 2011, with crucial support from AZO China, AZO succeeded in winning the biggest contract ever in the entire history of the AZO Group. Tingyi, the world’s largest producer of noodles, that also has its headquarters in Tianjin, awarded AZO 17 individual contracts worth a total of 30 million euros. Further major contracts followed from well-known manufacturers from the food, pharmaceuticals, chemicals and plastics industries. According to AZO, this was not primarily due just to the decision-makers being convinced of the quality AZO delivers; rather, it is extremely important on the Chinese market to be aware of and to observe cultural conventions.
