This year marks the sixth anniversary of the establishment of ViscoTec China. In the past years, ViscoTec has experienced an encouraging growth in the Chinese market, with an average annual growth rate of about 40%; its precision dispensing products have been distributed mostly in the automotive, aerospace and electronics industries. An extremely wide range of additional industrial manufacturing applications lies in the plastics, food industry, cosmetics, biomedical industry, 3D printing and traditional industries. At present, ViscoTec's equipment sales in the Chinese market has reached more than 1,000 different types of products, serving more than 230 customers, especially in the automotive manufacturing, 3C product manufacturing, food, cosmetics and medical markets, ViscoTec market share of dispensing products has been constantly rising.
“We are especially grateful to Chinese customers for their support of ViscoTec for many years. Today we are also very much honored to invite our partners and friends to come and meet us at this wonderful moment. Also, special thanks to the diligent and hard-working Chinese employees in the process of opening up the Chinese market.” Markus Schultz, General Manager of ViscoTec China, said, “ViscoTec has a very active performance in the automotive industry, including the rapid development of the moment with the New Energy Vehicles; in addition, electronic products, mobile phones and handheld devices are also the key markets of ViscoTec. In these areas, customers have many complex applications, and we use our strong technology and professional and fast pre- and after-sales support services to provide the customer the satisfactory solution."
The expansion of the company is also accompanied by the continuous growth of ViscoTec China. At present, the company's office area has expanded to about 600 square meters, with a large conference room for 50 people and an additional test and demo room. The new office space will provide employees with a more spacious and comfortable office environment to better provide customers with innovative products and services.
ViscoTec is an innovative company that has been committed to precision metering and conveying of viscous media for more than 20 years. The establishment and growth of the Chinese subsidiary will better provide all products and equipment and enhanced localization technology and service support for customers in China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.
For the next development plan in the Chinese market, Mr. Markus Schultz said that in response to the current transition of China's manufacturing industry and the transition to a higher level of automation, the demand for high-end development in China's manufacturing industry is growing stronger. Based on such a general trend in manufacturing, for the manufacturing process that requires the use of adhesives such as highly viscose and abrasive pastes, the requirements for precision metering and precision dispensing are also rising, so ViscoTec provides customers with better products. A cost-reducing solution, and this is the area in which ViscoTec has been focusing on more than 20 years of continuous research and innovation based on market demand.
With the emergence of some emerging industries and applications, such as 3D printing and the current development of 5G communications, ViscoTec will bring new business opportunities; of course, the emergence of new business will inevitably be accompanied by challenges, Mr. Markus Schultz “ViscoTec has a deep technical accumulation and extensive industry application experience. We are fully confident to provide reliable one-stop systems and sophisticated dispensing equipment to the market.”
Next, in order to better serve the vast number of manufacturing customers in South China, ViscoTec opened its office in South China in November last year to provide better pre-sales inquiry and testing and quick after-sales service for customers in the region.
A new starting point, a new journey. In the future, ViscoTec will continue to adhere to the principle of “customer service is the first priority”, as always, to provide customers with professional precision material metering and conveying equipment, as well as more specialized services for the customer industry.
