Remaining on the Course for Growth
"Thinking globally – acting locally" is the motto of the new HANSA-FLEX corporate group. This means: being present locally with a global network of branch offices. Because HANSA-FLEX sees customer proximity as part of its responsibility for ensuring smooth processes in hydraulics.
HANSA-FLEX is pursuing international growth while at the same time extending its product range. We intend to continue our efforts to become a world leading provider of hydraulic systems. Our intensified concentration on the emerging markets in the Middle and Far East is an important step on this road.
For this reason the opening of the new head office for the Asian market in Shanghai is a logical consequence of the HANSA-FLEX growth strategy. "With the new building in Shanghai HANSA-FLEX is creating a logistics and manufacturing centre for the growing Asian market. Furthermore, a central warehouse is also being erected here from where the whole of Asia will be supplied," says Managing Director Thomas Armerding.
The 15,000 m² building accommodates not only warehouses and the production and logistics centre, but also the administration department and a training centre with overnight accommodation. Overall HANSA-FLEX has invested approximately €4 million in the new building. When the centre is fully operational, up to 100 employees will work there.
In spite of the worldwide crisis, China is one of the fastest growing national economies in the world. The metropolis of Shanghai has around 14 million inhabitants and has been the economic centre of the People's Republic for years. The seaport of Shanghai is already the second largest in the world and is still enjoying considerable growth rates. Up to the year 2020 the Chinese government will have invested more than US$5 billion into extensive expansion measures for the port.
Wherever building work is carried out, hydraulics always has a role to play. This is one of the main reasons why the Asian market provides the best sales opportunities for the products of the HANS-FLEX corporate group and the associated services. After the opening of two branches in China in January 2009, Shanghai is the sixth HANSA-FLEX location in the land of smiles.
The principle of HANSA-FLEX's success is called system partnership. It is the breadth and depth of the products andserviceswhich makes the company a highly appreciated partner today. Because in a key technology such as hydraulics, solutions from a single source are preferred. With its dense network of branches HANSA-FLEX displays permanent local presence and customer proximity – worldwide at over 340 branches on four continents.
