EPLAN announces opening of Shanghai office

September 5, 2018 - A total of 230 guests from the fields of science, business and politics celebrated the founding of the new Eplan office in Shanghai, China, on 8 June.

Eplan Greater China President Bill Qin began the impressive opening celebration in the Hongqiao Jin Jiang Hotel Shanghai with his keynote talk “Excellence Through Innovation.” Providing an overview of digital manufacturing and current ideas for innovative engineering, he finds that industrial design will continue breaking down barriers while moving towards manufacturing. Eplan’s goals in China are clear: Leading engineering design will advance smart manufacturing in the country.

In his presentation about smart engineering, Industry 4.0, and smart manufacturing, Eplan Managing Director Haluk Menderes spoke about the necessity of integrated processes – from engineering through to manufacturing.

Eplan has been present in China since 2005 and continues to grow, with more than fifty employees in ten offices, including Shanghai, Beijing, Chengdu and Shenzhen. The Chinese offices focus especially on mechanical engineering, the automotive industry and energy technology, a field that that is growing strongly in almost all business segments. Chinese companies such as Shanghai Electric, Chery and CRRC rely on Eplan’s solutions expertise as do other global players in the market. Working with control cabinet and IT solutions provider Rittal and automation specialist Rittal Automation Systems, both Eplan affiliates within the Friedhelm Loh Group, the companies have offerings for control cabinet and switchgear manufacturers on the Chinese market.
