James Liu, managing director and owner of SJF Industrial Technologies, added: ‘The acceptance of high-end quality products and solutions is growing rapidly in the Chinese market. We have seen this with the industrial lubrication solutions from Woerner, as with the sealing products from James Walker. And we are confident that the quality products of Groeneveld will prove their value in many segments in the Chinese market as well.’
Working alongside Groeneveld China, SJF will have prime responsibility for offering class-leading support to existing customers in China, both end-customers and OEMs and their dealers.
Mr Liu sees great opportunities for Groeneveld. He commented: ‘Groeneveld products have proven their value all over the world. On trucks and trailers, in construction and mining equipment…With increased efficiency, reliability and uptime on the one hand, and reduced maintenance costs on the other, we are convinced that the Chinese market is ready for the high-end products that Groeneveld offer.’
