ViscoTec Hong Kong Ltd is the company’s third Chinese location, having established headquarters in Shanghai in 2013 and a branch office in Dongguan in southern China in 2018.
Hong Kong's international reputation and central location within Asia simplifies access to other market-relevant countries such as Taiwan, Japan and Korea.
The new subsidiary will be headed by Markus Schultz, the long-serving managing director of ViscoTec Shanghai Ltd, who will manage the business of the new subsidiary from Hong Kong. The management of ViscoTec Shanghai Ltd will be gradually transferred to the local operations manager Jizong Zhou and the sales manager Peng Gao.
“I am pleased that we can hand over greater responsibility to our local employees. We want to show appreciation for the Chinese mentality and self-image, in order to align our relationships in the long term,” says Franz Kamhuber, commercial managing director of the parent company ViscoTec Pumpen- u Dosiertechnik GmbH and a member of the executive board of the two subsidiaries.
