Leading industrial technology specialist Tracerco, part of the Johnson Matthey group, has increased its global presence by establishing a new service centre in Shanghai, China. The opening comes shortly after the company invested in new operations facilities in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Perth, Australia.
Despite the global economic downturn, China continues to achieve growth and positive GDP adding still further capacity to its vast oil and gas, refining and petrochemical industries. The new office will make Tracerco’s full range of diagnostic and measurement technologies available to operators across China. Significant interest has already been established amongst lead process and maintenance engineers eager to access new tools to add to their task of increasing production rates and driving efficiency improvement.
This team consists of a core team of locally hired engineers who have been fully trained to the company’s high standards able to respond quickly to client requests, while also providing a local aftersales service to the growing installed base of Tracerco’s instrument systems.
Ken Pearson, managing director for Asia and Australia said: “Opening an office in China is very important to us. It continues to be a major economic and industrial powerhouse and as such, its demand for energy and petroleum derived manufactured products is increasing. I am confident our unique range of measuring, diagnostic and tracer products and local, technical expertise will be well received by the technology receptive Chinese market and that our customer base will expand rapidly.
