Atlas Converting Equipment is pleased to confirm that it has recently completed the incorporation of its new China-based subsidiary, A.C.E. (Shanghai) Trading Company Ltd., which is located in new premises in the Pudong business district of Shanghai. This follows the UK company’s separation from Bobst Group via a management buy-out (MBO) in October 2010.

The core team for Atlas and Titan at A.C.E. (Shanghai) Trading Company will provide support in both sales and service activities for all Atlas and Titan slitter rewinder customers throughout Greater China, which continues to be a very important market for the company.

Mr. Raymond Chan continues in his role as regional sales manager for the Atlas and Titan product range in Greater China and Mr. Daniel Zhang continues in his role as service manager and is responsible for all service, spare parts and customer support operations at the company.

"We are delighted to have established our own, autonomous subsidiary trading company to represent our operations in China," confirmed Alan Johnson, managing director of parent company Atlas Converting Equipment in the UK. "We look forward to developing a much stronger relationship with our customer base in China for both the Atlas and Titan product ranges and now having our own group company in place will certainly help us to achieve that objective as effectively as possible."

"For over 30 years, China has been one of the most important export markets for Atlas and Titan and will continue to be in the future. Our new trading company in Shanghai provides a strong platform for our future business development in China," he concluded.
