ContiTech Expands Service Center for Printing Blankets in Shanghai

Company remains on track for growth in China / Range further expanded for customers / New warehouse for smooth-running logistics

Hannover, (PresseBox) - The international printing blanket manufacturer ContiTech has expanded its service center in Shanghai and has moved to a new location in the Chuansha Industrial Park, where it has at its disposal an area twice as large as before, ensuring that logistics run smoothly. "Our business with the Chinese printing industry has grown immensely in recent years, bringing our previous service center to its performance limits," said Heiko Eymer, head of the ContiTech Elastomer Coatings business unit, at the official opening of the facility on November 12, 2010, in Shanghai. "With the new location, we want to continue growing."

Customers in the graphics art industry in China stand to profit from the move: "The product range and service have improved greatly," says Dr. Thomas Perkovic, head of the printing blanket segment at ContiTech. "Above all, the new location will shorten delivery times."

In the Shanghai Service Center, printing blankets of the CONTI-AIR® brand are cut to size and prepared for use in printing machines. ContiTech, an internationally geared company headquartered in Hanover, Germany, founded its Shanghai branch in 2001 to strengthen its position in China and has since profited from the country's economic development. 90% of sales are now achieved in the local market. At the beginning of the year, ContiTech already opened up an autonomous service center in Singapore where PHOENIX XTRA BLANKETS and ContiTech printing blankets are assembled for customers in the Pacific region, in Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines.
