The FDT Group AISBL has formed a new China FDT Association with ten leading Process and Factory Automation supplier members headquartered in China.
“The China automation market has mirrored the high growth of the China domestic market. The FDT Group has supported China activities indirectly for several years, however, recent requests by indigenous automation companies to increase the China FDT activities lead to the formation of the China FDT Association,” states Glenn Schulz, Managing Director of the international FDT Group. “This new FDT association has been structured to allow local control and focus of FDT activities in China.”
The ten China companies joining the FDT Group include: Beijing Automation Technical Research Institute, Beijing Hollysys Co., Ltd, Chongqing Chuanyi Automation Co., Ltd, ChongQing YuTong System and Software Co., Ltd, Microcyber Inc., Shanghai Automation Instrumentation Co., Ltd, Shanghai Chenzhu Instrument Co., Ltd, Shenzhen Maxonic Automation Control Co. Ltd, and SUPCON Group Co., Ltd.
“We are very pleased with the focus and dedication of our new China FDT Association. Our new chairman of the China FDT Association Board, Mr. Ken Qui of Endress +HauserChina, has set out an ambitious schedule for the new organization,” states Mr. Michael Sinz, Director of marketing for FDT in China. “I extend a special thanks to our sponsoring member companies: Endress+Hauser, Flowserve, Invensys, Rockwell Automation, Schneider Electric, and Yokogawa as well as ITEI and Southwest University for their guidance in the formation of our new FDT association.”
