The entity”s activities focus on sales, on-site service and spare parts supply. Danny Dohrmann, who has been head of AMEPA”s Chinese representation, which has now been incorporated as a business, will continue as head of the new company and the newly hired local staff.

Martin Fieweger, responsible for AMEPA”s US and Chinese subsidiaries, wants to support its customers with optimum service: “Seeing that our order intake from China has been developing very positively, we are now in a position to provide a significantly expanded service portfolio there – including a wider range of on-site commissioning and aftersales services. All our development and manufacturing activities will remain at our headquarters in Würselen.”
