Delcam plc has just opened its 30th sales and support office in China to serve users of the company’s range of CAD/CAM software products. The latest office is situated in Qingdao on the country’s eastern coast. It is the eighth office to be established by the Delcam China subsidiary of the UK-based software developer.
Delcam China’s other centres are the head office in Beijing and regional offices in Shanghai, Shenzhen, Chengdu, Xi’an, Wenzhou, and Chongqing. In addition, the Delcam Hong Kong and Delcam Taiwan joint ventures operate two offices each in China, and there are also 18 reseller offices in the country.
The Qingdao region was one of few manufacturing centres in China where Delcam was not represented. The area is a major centre for the manufacture of domestic appliances and automotive components, but it is also experiencing a general expansion of local industry. As the Chinese region nearest to Korea, the area has attracted investment from many leading Korean manufacturers.
“The establishment of our Qingdao office is another step toward ensuring that all of our customers in China can have access to local support from experienced engineers,” says Delcam’s business development manager for Greater China, Joe Zhou. “In addition, Delcam has always been extremely successful in Korea, and the new office will help support our Korean customers that are expanding into the Qingdao region.”
The opening of its 30th outlet in the country comes at a time when Delcam’s sales in China are at record levels. Sales for the first four months of this year were up more than 25% relative to the same period in 2007.
