Arburg officially opened its new 1,500 m² machine warehouse in China with an inauguration ceremony on 22 November 2013. Around 100 customers accepted the invitation to the Shanghai event. Following the inauguration ceremony, guests were treated to a presentation featuring four interesting applications on Allrounder injection moulding machines and more.
"It´s a great honour for me to attend the official inauguration of our new warehouse in Shanghai in the name of the ARBURG parent company," said Benjamin Franz, Business Development Manager Asia, welcoming his audience on behalf of the Partners and the Management Team. "Arburg has reached a new milestone in its operations in China, and it will certainly not be the last." During his speech, he also emphasised that customers in Asia will now benefit from shorter delivery times. The new warehouse in the Waigaoqiao free trade zone holds a selection of hydraulic, hybrid and electric Allrounders as well as Multilift robotic systems for the Asian market.
New premises and interesting applications
A traditional lion dance banished any evil spirits from the premises. During the opening ceremony, Yiming Huang, Sales Manager at the Arburg subsidiary in Shanghai, expressed his thanks to his colleague Shuili Dong, who is responsible for the new machine warehouse.
Guests were also afforded the opportunity to see four interesting applications for the automotive industry, medical technology and packaging technology sectors. The celebrations came to a close with lunch and a prize draw.
25 years of presence in Asia
Arburg has been present with its own organisations in Asia for 25 years. Today, around 60 employees provide customer support - from sales, applications technology consulting and training, through to technical support. Whereas initially, the customers were mainly global players from the West, every second customer comes from within the region today. A further trend is that the quality of the machines which Arburg exports to China is increasing. This is evidenced by a growing proportion of electric Allrounder machines featuring robotic systems and complete turnkey systems.
