Did you know that Schindler Group was the first western industrial to sign a joint venture in China in March 1980? This is one of many “firsts” that explain the close and dense relations that have united Switzerland and China for centuries…
So it was a great honor for our CEO Zhen Xiao, accompanied by our Deputy GM Yulia JIN 金玉 and our Communication Specialist Angie Chen, to visit their impressive new campus: Jiading Schindler City. What’s it all about? It’s quite simply …
🛗 one of the biggest escalator factory in the world,
🏢 a 200 meters high elevator test tower,
📍 the regional headquarters of Schindler
💼 and all necessary supporting functions for logistics, social functions and representation!
An exceptional site that we will be visiting during the fact-finding mission we are organizing from November 5 to 12, supported by numerous organizations including Switzerland Global Enterprise, Neuchâtel Economie, Innovaud, the CCIG – Chambre de commerce, d’industrie et des services de Genève and P&TS SA.
Finally, our delegation had the opportunity to discuss the business environment in China with Franz Arnold, Vice President Modernization Schindler China and board member of SwissCham Shanghai (SwissCham China), and George Ma, Vice President Corporate Communication & Marketing.
