iPoint establishes new subsidiaries in China and Japan
REUTLINGEN, Germany, Nov. 5, 2013 /CNW/ - The software and consulting
company iPoint-systems is increasing its presence in the Asian market
by establishing subsidiaries in Shanghai and Tokyo. With this, the IT
specialist is continuing its global growth course - it was only in
spring that iPoint opened a new subsidiary in Michigan, USA.
The establishment of "iPoint Software and Information Technology
(Shanghai) Ltd." is in line with iPoint's activities in the Chinese
market. The company maintains good relations with the research
institute China Automotive Technology & Research Center (CATARC), the
administrative organization of the Chinese automotive industry. The two
partners signed a cooperative agreement in the middle of this year; a
visit of a CATARC delegation to the iPoint headquarters in Reutlingen
is scheduled for this year. The Shanghai subsidiary focuses on service,
consulting and training for customers on site. The first services
offered by the Chinese subsidiary include first-level support for the
iPoint Conflict Minerals Platform.
First-level support as well as training courses on this subject are also
part of the service portfolio of "iPoint Japan Co Ltd". Another main
focus of the new subsidiary will be the distribution of further iPoint
products. Moreover, iPoint is collaborating with an experienced and
renowned Japanese distribution partner, who will be marketing the
iPoint solutions on site. Furthermore, iPoint has already been in touch
with associations of the electronics and automotive industry.
Jörg Walden, CEO of iPoint-systems, is convinced of his company's
expansion policy: "The Asian economy, in particular the electronics and
automotive industry, is characterized by enormous growth potential.
Regarding sustainability, Asia is reported to be in the process of
getting ahead of the European and American markets. By providing our
solutions and services on site, we can ideally support our Asian
customers in terms of product compliance and sustainability."
