HIMA launches HIMA Industrial Automation in China

September 8, 2016 - HIMA has relaunched its Chinese operation in the form of a wholly foreign-owned enterprise. The new company is named HIMA (Shanghai) Industrial Automation Co., Ltd.

Previously, HIMA had operated in China as part of a joint venture. Following a strategic review of the business and their long-term objectives, the safety specialist relaunched its Chinese operation on July 1, 2016, as the wholly foreign-owned enterprise HIMA (Shanghai) Industrial Automation Co., Ltd.

To introduce its new entity, HIMA held a conference at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Shanghai. Attending the event were nearly 100 customers and business partners.

HIMA has operated in the Chinese market since 2001. Initially, the company collaborated with a sales agent. In 2006, the agent and HIMA formed a joint venture. The joint venture operated successfully for 10 years and expanded HIMA’s customer base and market penetration in China.
