The entry into China is a 10-year success story for FAULHABER. With the start of FAULHABER Drive System Technology (Taicang) Co. Ltd in Taicang in 2010, customers in this market were better supplied with products and services, and new applications areas were opened for the drive specialist. Taicang functions today as a hub for China, supported by other subsidiaries in Beijing, Guangzhou, Xi’an and Hong Kong.
With the opening of the first subsidiary in Taicang 10 years ago, FAULHABER ventured into the People’s Republic, one of the largest national economies in the world. The company selected the economic and industrial zone Taicang, located between Shanghai and Suzhou near the Yangtze River. Due to the well-developed infrastructure and optimum connection to air transport, shipping and rail routes and the high availability of skilled workers, more than 1,200 companies had settled here since 1991, including more than 130 medium-sized enterprises from Germany.
Today, FAULHABER is one of more than 180 German companies in Taicang and, together with the sales offices that have also opened over the past decade in Beijing, Guangzhou, Xi’an and Hong Kong, supplies its customers in the People’s Republic with innovative products and services in all areas of drive technology. The successful expansion over the past 10 years is also a sign of the constantly growing need for individual drive solutions in one of the largest national economies in the world.
