Renishaw, a UK based engineering technologies company and manufacturer of metal-based Additive Manufacturing (AM) systems, has reported that its Chinese headquarters has moved to a new state-of-the-art facility in Shanghai. The new office for Renishaw (Shanghai) Trading Company Ltd is located in the Shibei High Tech Park in the Zhabei District.
The new headquarters building covers over 3,200 m2, of which an initial phase of 1,860 m2 has been developed, with the second phase due be completed in early 2015. A new demonstration facility offers comprehensive technical support to OEM customers, distributors and end-users for the full range of Renishaw’s metrology products, plus Raman spectroscopy systems and Additive Manufacturing systems.
Renishaw currently has 11 offices across China with a total of 125 employees. The new building has allowed Renishaw to expand its warehouse and logistics facilities and to increase the size of its Service Centre.
“Renishaw has been strongly committed to the Chinese market ever since we opened our first office in Beijing in 1994, which was followed by a wholly owned subsidiary in Shanghai in 2005,” stated Paul Gallagher, Managing Director, Renishaw (Shanghai) Trading Company Ltd.
“Our investment in this fast-growing country has been further strengthened by the expansion into this new facility. We look forward to many more years of strategic growth, and to continuing to build a strong business in Mainland China,” added Gallagher.
