Shapeline opens office in China

(PresseBox) (Linköping, ) Shapeline takes a major step into China with the launch of a new Chinese Sales and Service office in Beijing. The office has started very successfully, with two substantial orders for plate flatness systems already placed in July and August 2012.

Shapeline AB, the Swedish-based supplier of laser flatness measurement systems to the global steel and metals industry, has opened a Sales and Service office in Beijing, China. The new office has been established in partnership with the Hong Kong-based company, Techtrans to serve the Chinese market.

"The Chinese steel and metals industry is the biggest in the world and is extremely interesting. However, we decided to hold back on the launch of the new office in China until we knew that we could contribute efficiently with Shapeline's knowledge and products," says Magnus Titus, President & CEO, Shapeline AB "Now is the right time. There is a big drive within the Chinese industry to develop high quality, high valued steel and aluminum products, as well as optimizing the processes further. Here, we can contribute through our experience from installations at steel and metals mills worldwide."

The new Shapeline office got off to a flying start during July and August following two significant orders for flatness measurement systems, the first two contracts in China, both designed for high quality steel plate lines.
