OXFORDSHIRE, ENGLAND | Meech Intl. continues to expand its global presence with the formation in China of a wholly owned subsidiary–Meech Static Eliminators (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. The Oxfordshire-based company, which is a leading developer of static control, air, and web cleaning technologies, claims it is winning an increasing number of sales from China, and during the next 12 months it will be confirming its long-term commitment to the area by opening offices in Beijing and Guangzhou.
“China is a very important market for Meech and also for many of our OEM customers, several of which have set up local manufacturing facilities and sales channels,” says CEO Chris Francis. “We’ve had a presence in China since 2004, at first via a CBBC (China-Britain Business Council) program and later on with help from the PPMA (Processing & Packaging Machinery Association). This new Meech subsidiary is the next stage in our expansion plan to provide even more comprehensive on the ground sales and support to our OEM partners, as well as Chinese companies, whether they are end users or manufacturers.”
