To continue to provide customers across the globe with greater access to ABB’s high-quality service and parts, ABB Turbocharging has announced the establishment of a branch office of ABB Jiangjin Turbo Systems Co., Ltd. in Zhoushan.
Zhoushan, thanks to its superior geographical position and the booming development of China's marine industry and economy, is now taking over 35 percent of the total working load of ship repair for the country, making it the premier ship repair center in China. With the rapid growth in the demand for efficient and convenient services from customers, ABB foresaw the opportunity at this prime location and reached a strategic cooperation with Zhoushan Xinya Shipyard Co., Ltd., an important hub for ABB.
This branch will offer customers the benefit of ABB’s original spare parts and services, and more convenient access to maintenance and repair for all ABB turbochargers, regardless of the model types and use. With the new location, the time previously required for repairs and maintenance will now be significantly reduced.
“ABB Jiangjin Turbocharging System Co., Ltd. Zhoushan Branch is the first legal entity established by ABB in Zhoushan,” said Mr. Jiang Haibo, Head of Industrial Automation Division, ABB China. “It will be a valuable addition to our sales and service network in Zhoushan and the entire south-eastern coastal Yangtze River Delta region. It will help ABB remain closer to the needs of the market and serve our customers faster and better, as well as in the delivery of ABB’s mission ‘In China, for China, and for the world’.”
The cooperation with local partners will encourage and grow innovation to meet the needs of both present and future customers, further contributing to the regional industrial transformation and upgrading. It will also create positive influences and enhance the economic development of Zhoushan and Zhejiang province.
"We are very optimistic about the future of Zhoushan. By leveraging ABB’s technical advantages in Internet of Things and digitalization, through active participation in the construction of key projects and the economic development of Zhoushan, we are confident to achieve a ‘win-win’ collaboration,” added Haibo.
As well as offering geographical benefits to customers, the branch will also provide greater access to customers to fully utilize ABB’s digital offerings through its support network.
“ABB Turbocharging is committed to providing customers with high quality and accessible services and products, which encompasses the delivery of innovative and digital solutions. These solutions, be it products or services, enhance the equipment performance, increase operational flexibility, and reduce operating costs (OPEX),” said Allan-QingZhou Wang, Head of ABB Jiangjin Turbo Systems Co., Ltd.
ABB Jiangjin Turbo Systems Co., Ltd. sales and service network will serve both domestic and international customers. These include branches/subsidiaries in major coastal cities such as Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Tianjin, Dalian, Qingdao, Zhoushan, as well as service points in Shekou and Fuzhou in cooperation with local shipyards, in a bid to optimize utilization of resources and service footprint, expand network coverage and improve service responsiveness.
