Schat-Harding opens South China service station

Schat-Harding opens South China service station

Hong Kong: Booming demand in has led leading lifeboat and davit manufacturer Schat-Harding to open a third Chinese service station, this time in Guangzhou's busy port area of Huangpu. The new base is close to all the major repair yards in Guangzhou in order to offer faster response times for the yards and ports of Shenzhen, Hong Kong and the South China region. It opens on June 1 with four service engineers and a service administrator.
Andrew Lemmis, who heads up Schat-Harding's China Service Division says, "When we first started service in China in February 2006 we were in a small office operating from the Qingdao manufacturing plant with just four service engineers, a service co-ordinator and myself. We outgrew that office is less than a year and relocated to Shanghai. Now we have service facilities in Qingdao, Shanghai and Guangzhou with 22 service
engineers and back office support from ten dedicated service staff."
David Bradley, Executive Vice-president of Schat-Harding's service
division adds: "It is likely Schat-Harding will soon have to open a fourth service facility in north China, possibly Dalian or Tianjin, such is the demand we are experiencing in China and across Asia." [22/05/08]
