Zurich Instruments opens China office

In order to provide a better service to its customers in Greater China Zurich Instruments has just established an office in Shanghai.

On June 23rd, 2016 Zurich Instruments has launched a subsidiary in Shanghai, China. The new company is Zurich Instruments’ first fully-fledged overseas daughter. Davis Wang (38) has been appointed to the local Country Manager and will lead the operation together with Dr. James Wei (41), Business Development Manager Greater China. 

Davis Wang has a long standing experience in scientific and technical sales in China. With his impressive 10-years track record at DEWETRON he adds the experience to run and ramp a Chinese subsidiary to the team.  Davis commented: „I am very excited to be part of this highly innovative company with an excellent brand and lead the business development in China. After we get the office basics operational here in Shanghai, we will immediately be looking at hiring people and building a team with a good mix of technical and business related expertise.“ 

James Wei, born in Canada with roots in Taiwan, fluent in English, French, and Mandarin has been with Zurich Instruments’ Marketing & Sales team for 5 years now. During that time his focus was on international sales and business development in Asia. He knows the company and its products inside-out and decided to support the setup of the Chinese office within the scope of a temporal relocation to Shanghai for 2 years. 

Zurich Instruments co-founder and CEO Dr. Sadik Hafizovic commented: „Greater China is of great strategic importance to our company and we believe that a Chinese office with local people will help us tremendously to get a tighter link to our Asian customers and to provide better customer service to the Chinese scientific community as well as to the R&D departments of the corporate world. Personally, I’m thrilled about this step as it marks another important mile stone in the companies development from a ETH Zurich spin-off to a global technology leader in the test & measurement business.“
