The opening of the Chinese branch of the Austrian company Industrie Informatik in Shanghai on 31 May 2012 generated great interest. This move enhances the companys role as a leading provider of manufacturing execution system (MES) software.
After more than two years of preparations and the assembly and training of a local team consisting of Chinese and European staff, Industrie Informatik CEO Herbert Parnreiter and Eberhard Hoffmann, General Manager of the subsidiary in Shanghai, welcomed over fifty guests from Shanghai and a radius of some 200 kilometers to the successful kick-off event.
Guests included Raymund Gradt from the Austrian Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai, Christian Sommer, CEO and Chairman of the German Center, as well as customers and other interested parties. The ceremonious climax of the event was the unveiling of the business license.
Industrie Informatiks presence in China scores with Chinese companies as well as multinational concerns. Due to the dynamic economic growth of the Chinese market, multinationals increasingly seek an IT partner who provides local support. This indirectly has a positive effect on decisions in Europe.
With its modules for planning and scheduling, for collection of plant data, machine data and process data, and for personnel time and attendance, the innovative MES suite cronetwork, is not only integrated with international standard software such as SAP®, but also open for integration with Chinese ERP solutions. Due to extremely flexible language versioning, the Web interface and the unique release policy, cronetwork provides the optimal solution for multinational concerns that want to utilize the economic opportunities in China.
Several important projects have already been acquired in China. Industrie Informatik serves the rapidly rising number of automotive suppliers and tool-making companies.
