Expansion of Arburg Subsidiary in Shenzhen
On 26 September 2014, Arburg’s Chinese subsidiary in Shenzhen celebrated the official inauguration of its new premises together with around 200 invited guests. The move increases the available space to 1,250 square meters. The 200 square meter demonstration room with space for three Allrounders and storage capacity for seven more injection molding machines will help to further improve customer support and service offerings in Shenzhen.
The machine house opened in 2013 was expanded by another 30 % in order to reduce delivery times even more as further evidence of the ongoing investments in China. A range of electric, hybrid and hydraulic Allrounder machines built at Arburg’s German parent plant in Lossburg is available here, ready to be adapted to specific customer requirements in China, so that they can be quickly commissioned on-site at the customer’s premises.
The two subsidiaries in Shanghai and Shenzhen will work more closely together than before and will share capacity and know how. This means that an even larger team of experts is now available to customers. Furthermore, the subsidiary Shenzhen will be the first Competence Center for automation in China. In a move to further strengthen the Chinese team, Arburg has entrusted responsibility for the subsidiaries in Shenzhen and Hong Kong to Zhao Tong, who has managed the subsidiary in Shanghai over the past ten years.
With its three locations, Arburg is extremely well represented in China. The subsidiary in Hong Kong has been in existence since 1991, while Shanghai and Shenzhen opened in 2004 and 2006 respectively. The two demonstration rooms in Shenzhen and Shanghai measure 200 square metres, offering plenty of space for customers to inspect and test the machines, as well as use them in the context of our extensive training programme. Further facilities include hotlines staffed by experts and well-stocked spare parts stores. In order to improve application technology consulting and sales, the team was strengthened through the addition of twelve new recruits. This means that a total of 53 employees ensure a comprehensive pre- and aftersales service in China.
