Grand Opening of MiR's China office
MiR sees a huge potential on the Chinese market, which is the reason why we are expanding our actitivities with more employees, and today we celebrated the grand opening of our Shanghai office.
Distributors and business relations from all over China came to celebrate the grand opening of our Shanghai office, and we would like to thank everyone who participated.
The office opening is an important step for us and for our presence in China, where we are investing massively. In 2018, MiR will hire five new employees to our sales office in Shanghai, which was established in the beginning of 2017. According to statistics from the International Federation of Robotics (IFR), around one third of the over 300,000 industry robots that were installed around the world in 2016 were delivered to China.
“With their "Made in China 2025" plan, China is working intensively to automate production and processes. We see a huge potential in this market, and we’re also seeing that our multinational customers want our robots in China,” says CEO Thomas Visti, who cut the ribbon and declared the Shanghai office open.
