Mach-Aire publicised at the end of 2010 their intention to operate a joint venture (JV) in China with their trading partners Shanghai Tech Labway in Shanghai.
They are now pleased to announce that as of early March this is now operational, with Darren Hughes relocating from their Horwich, Bolton facility to take up the position of general manager. Alongside him will be Carol Chuk, who joins the JV from Shanghai Tech Lab to handle marketing.
This is an exciting development for Mach-Aire which will enable them to raise the profile of their organization within one of their prime target markets of South East Asia. Having successfully worked with Shanghai Tech Lab for the last three years designing and supplying locally made Fume Cupboards to pharmaceutical companies, water testing centres,police stations and other industrial laboratories, it was felt that the time was now right to expand the product portfolio.
The JV will be introducing Mach-Aires range of containment products, namely Isolators, Downflow Booths, and Laminar Flow Systems etc. into the Chinese market, giving the customers the benefit of experienced design technology with local manufacture.
