Bremen, 18.02.2016 - SALT AND PEPPER has been active in China since 2015. The Bremen-based company, which acts as a partner for progress for industry in the engineering, management consultancy and software design sectors, has consolidated its activities in China in a company of its own. The founding of “SALT AND PEPPER (Deyang) Engineering Consulting Partnership (LLP)” establishes the company’s foundation for further expansion in China.
The first Chinese order was received early in 2015 from a Chinese supplier who was manufacturing punched parts for two large German car manufacturers. Within 12 months, starting with a rigorous analytical phase, the local SALT AND PEPPER team had optimised important process steps, managed tool development and, acting as interim manager, assumed overall responsibility for the factory. Quality management was also introduced and overall equipment effectiveness improved sustainably.
Establishing SALT AND PEPPER (Deyang) Engineering Consulting Partnership (LLP) in major city of Deyang means that the company will be much better equipped to meet the growing demand from Chinese customers for its services. SALT AND PEPPER currently has seven staff in China. It is planned to expand the local team further during the course of the year. The team consists of both German and Chinese staff.
Marko Schluroff, SALT AND PEPPER Holding GmbH executive responsible for business with China, says “Expansion into China and the founding of our own company there is an important milestone for SALT AND PEPPER. The market offers plenty of demand for our whole range of services. Opening a branch in China means that we can keep on expanding our on-the-spot team.”
Besides the Deyang headquarters, SALT AND PEPPER has a further office in Jilin in northern China.
