HIMA Paul Hildebrandt GmbH has announced the launch of a wholly foreign-owned enterprise in China. The new company, named HIMA (Shanghai) Industrial Automation Co. Ltd, was launched following a strategic review of HIMA’s previous operations in China as part of a joint venture with a sales agent.
Steffen Philipp, Managing Partner of HIMA Group, said: “China is the fastest growing market for HIMA, and we are seeing strong opportunities in both the process and rail sectors. With our new company, HIMA can bring its full strength to bear and offer the Chinese market a broader range and depth of technology, services and training support.”
Wolfgang Hagn, Managing Director of HIMA China, added: “We have changed our structure because of the advantages it offers to our customers. HIMA China will offer access to one-stop shopping and best-in-class service. This is vital as China is strategically important to HIMA as we look to reinforce our position as the leading independent global supplier of safety-related automation solutions.”
