Arburg establishes Taiwan subsidiary
April 5, 2016 by Canadian Plastics
Germany-based injection molding machine maker Arburg has founded a subsidiary in Taiwan.
Located in Taichung, the subsidiary – which officially started on April 1 – takes over from Arburg’s long-time Taiwanese sales agent C & F International Corp.
“Due to Taiwan’s great importance as an innovative market with many high-end companies, we are taking prompt action to secure and strategically expand our local presence there,” said Andrea Carta, Arburg’s overseas sales director. “By taking on many sales and service employees from our former trading partner, the same extensive knowledge and familiar local contacts will continue to be available to our customers in the future.”
Carta also noted that the new subsidiary can provide Arburg customers with “even more support in their internationalisation process.” “This can only work smoothly, however, if we have our own location in Taiwan,” he said. “Numerous Taiwanese Arburg customers are turning to the People’s Republic of China, but also to Southeast Asia. And these important decisions are taken in Taiwanese company headquarters.”
The new subsidiary covers an area of around 550 square metres.
