Representatives of Chinese Companies Visit Arburg
In the context of a week-long educational trip eleven high-ranking representatives of Chinese companies visited the injection molding machine manufacturer’s Lossburg headquarters on 19 September 2014. In addition to scientific institutions and the AMB trade fair, visits to selected machine manufacturers were also on the agenda. The Managing Director of Arburg’s Chinese subsidiary in Shanghai, Zhao Tong, suggested the stop-over in Lossburg.
Managing Director Sales Helmut Heinson welcomed the Chinese visitors. He gave them a brief overview of the Lossburg company, emphasizing its global presence and high export rate of around 70 percent. Arburg is represented by its own organisations in 24 countries. The German machine manufacturer is present in China with three subsidiaries, in Hong Kong (since 1991), Shanghai (since 2004) and in Shenzhen (since 2006). In 2013, a warehouse was opened near Shanghai, significantly further improving the customer support in China and Asia.
The presentation of the company was followed by a plant tour, during which the Chinese delegation also learned about Arburg’s corporate philosophy. As Helmut Heinson, emphasized: “Arburg is and remains a family-run company", which is what makes companies like Arburg so interesting for the Chinese visitors. The guests were also impressed with the high level of vertical integration and process organization at the injection molding machine manufacturer.
