MDC Daetwyler (China) Ltd. – Investment in China
Opening Days in March 2016 – move into new, modern and bigger premises
In January 2016 the company moved into our new, modern and bigger facilities with a high-tech equipped production site and modern offices. During our Opening Day in March we celebrated this big step forward together with our distribution partners.
The first Opening of MDC Daetwyler (China) Ltd. and the start of the lamella doctor blade production for the Chinese market was in 2002.
MDC Max Daetwyler actually entered the Chinese market many years before with its products. The first Polishmaster was installed over 30 years ago and was used in the making of Chinese Currency. After some time we started importing Doctor Blades from Switzerland through our local representative. In 2002 we decided to have a local presence to support the growing market. Throughout these years of growth, we now have a full technical support staff to help all of our distribution partners and end customers with their printing challenges. MDC China now has over 20 employees and has moved into a new building in Shanghai to support its growing production.
China is a big country for Rotogravure printing in the packaging market. Flexo printing develops also very well in the recent years.
Daetwyler is already well established for the demands of all Rotogravure applications as well as all Flexo printing applications. The growth of Flexo - to complement Gravure for example - has happened over the decades as Flexo technology develops. The wide MDC product selection and our experienced technical support team are ready for this shift in China.
What’s our development strategy for the next stage?
With our highly motivated and professional team and together with our distribution partners we continuously work on the growth of our market share in China. With our new infrastructure we are ready to handle any growth that the Chinese market will bring. We have committed to this country and this market for many generations to come.
