Delegation from China visits Schmersal

A Chinese business delegation from the city of Dongguan, which has been linked to Wuppertal since 2015 by a treaty of friendship, visited the headquarters of Schmersal yesterday. Managing partner Philip Schmersal introduced his company to the guests. In his presentation, he emphasized that Schmersal has been active in China for about 20 years and had already opened a production plant in Shanghai in 1999. Dongguan’s mayor Liang Weidong outlined the economic importance of the city with about eight million residents, which is located in the southeast of China, near Hong Kong, and is one of the most important industrial centres of China’s economically strongest province (Guangdong). The region is well on its way to becoming the „Silicon Valley of China“. After the exchange of gifts, the 16 members of the business delegation took part in a tour of Schmersal’s production plant.
