Unimaq appoints Chinese agent
The agreement was recently signed in Beijing by Berty De Jong (pictured right), director of Unimaq and Michael Cheng, managing director of MEMAG.
MEMAG is a Beijing based company with extensive experience in can making and has been the official agent for other overseas companies in China for the past few years.
“We are really happy to announce this agreement which strengthens our plans to offer can makers in China more direct access to our products and services. We feel we have found the perfect partner and appreciate MEMAG’s experience and knowledge of can making,” De Jong says.
Michael Cheng, managing director at MEMAG, added: “We are excited about this agreement and happy to have the opportunity to work alongside one of the fastest growing companies in can making with a real focus on innovation, long term market commitment and focused engineering support.”
Whilst also speeding up local communications and service support, the collaboration between Unimaq and MEMAG will also improve on-site customer relationships and response times, particularly in respect of helping individual customers develop their own and very often local can making, processing and market growth needs.
This agency agreement follows the opening of Unimaq’s new office in Bangkok, Thailand, in February this year, which was set up to give the company’s Asian based customers better access to its can decorating technologies, product development and engineering facilities.
