Illig Strengthens Presence in China
Thermoforming specialist Illig Maschinenbau, Heilbronn, Germany, and representatives of the Chinese local government „Administrative Committee of Zhejiang Haining Economic Development Zone“ have signed a contract for setting up a Customer Relation Center with a showroom for thermoforming machines and thermoforming molds.
The intent of the Zhejiang Haining Economic Development Zone is to establish companies of the plastic processing and supplying industry. „From Haining we will provide technical training for our Chinese customers to make them familiar with the thermoforming technology and we will offer service on site“, indicates Karl Schäuble, Illig Managing Director, the reasons for this decision.
In the course of the agreement the foundation of the ILLIG China branch office is planned as 100% Illig subsidiary. The new base will centrally coordinate the service for Illig machines in China from Haining and the staff there will also be in charge of customer care on site. The current expansion of the location establishes the lasting, stable market position of Illig machines during the last years in the growing Chinese market and in Southeast Asia.
In addition, Illig signed a collaboration agreement with the company Zhejiang Wankai New Materials Co. Ltd., one of the leading Chinese producers of PET.
