Chinese NGC establish European headquarter in the duisport
Logistic know-how is crucial: NGC gear and drive technology specialist to serve the European market from Germany in the future
NGC is the first Chinese enterprise to settle down in the port of Duisburg. Nanjing High Accurate Drive Equipment Manufacturing Group Co., Ltd (NGC) is a global player for gear and drive technology.
Establishing its European headquarters in Duisburg, the manufacturer offers its European customers direct access to its products and services. NGC is supported by the broad range of the duisport Group.
„The decision of NGC to establish its European headquarters in Duisburg confirms the attractiveness of the site and its importance as a leading logistics hub in Central Europe. Through our full-service approach to develop logistics solutions for the manufacturing industry, we will ideally complement the services of NGC. As a result, we meet the increasing demands regarding flexibility and performance, but also generate new added value at the site,“ says Erich Staake, CEO of the Duisburger Hafen AG.
Dr. Heinz-Peter Ehren, CEO NGC Transmission Europe GmbH: „Duisburg is the ideal location for our entry into Germany and Europe. Its central location close to our customers and research institutions as well as the optimal connection to all modes of transport has made the choice easy. Moreover there are the diverse logistics services of the duisport Group, which enjoy a high priority also in our headquarters in Nanjing thanks to a direct train to China among other things. “
The parent company was founded in 1969 as Nanjing machine shop and after restructuring and expansion it was renamed into Nanjing High Speed Gear Factory in 1976. In 2001 the company was turned into a publicly traded company, which is listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange since 2007 as China Transmission (stock code 0658). Within China, the company with its approximately 10,000 employees is valued at its one of the 100 most important and most competitive suppliers in mechanical engineering industry.
Because of the internationalization begun two years ago China Transmission is already represented in the United States for the North and South American markets, as well as in Singapore for the Asia-Pacific region. The official inauguration of the site with the approximately 1,000 m² factory building in Duisburg is planned for mid-year.
