In 1999, IKA began its business activities in China with its own offices in Guangzhou. The reason was the same back then as it is today:
Proximity to the customer. For this reason a sales office was opened in Peking in April of 2011 and is now followed by an additional office in Shanghai. The Shanghai opening is another milestone in IKA history: The IKA subsidiary in Guangzhou has experienced consistent growth over the last 10 years. A comprehensive sales and service network has been established.
René Stiegelmann, president of the IKA group, festively inaugurated the spaces along with managing director Klaus Jacuk and acting managing director for the Asia Pacific region, Andreas Reichert.
The IKA office in Shanghai is responsible for the eastern part of China: Shanghai, Jiangsu Province, Zheijing and Anhi Province. IKA Shanghai functions as a sales office, offers after-sales service, technical support and application-technological assistance.
