Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

To better meet increasing demands of the Asian market, paper machinery supplier PMT, Italy, reports that it made a strategic decision to open a new branch in China. The new branch will be called MT Kunshan, situated in the town of the same name.

PMT Kunshan, whose first activities will be the pre-erection of key components for the Asian market and the service to installations in the Far East, was conceived with the intent of widening PMT's current capability of supplying machinery and services to the paper industry in the Chinese market as well as expanding its activity to other countries. PMT sales activity in China will continue with the local support of Kaukomarkkinat. Some local technicians will be trained in Italy to build the first service staff while further internal and external manpower will be in charge of pre-erection activities.

Kunshan, with an ideal position in the most advanced Chinese area, between Shanghai and Nanjing, is one of the economically most interesting towns in China with its 2.4% foreign direct investment, especially from Taiwan, PMT notes.
