On April 25, 2017, Bossard moved its main Chinese operational unit from the Wai Gao Qiao Free Trade Zone to the Xin Zhuang Industrial Zone in Shanghai.
The move provides Bossard with 16,000 m² of space. The 5,000 m² warehouse offers room for up to 40,000 cubic meters of inventory capacity.
The new ISO17025 accredited engineering laboratory provides Bossard’s customers with the opportunity to have fasteners and corresponding connections tested, thus ensuring high quality and advanced fastening technology consulting. This allows Bossard China to serve customers better with the state of the art engineering laboratory.
At the opening ceremony, Mr. Song Shixiong, Director of Economic and Technology of Minhang District, Mr. Xi Weisong, Vice General Manager of Xinzhuang Industrial Economy Development Co., Ltd., and Mr. David Dean, CEO of the Bossard Group, cut the ribbon to open the new location. Both Mr. Xi Weisong and Mr. David Dean praised the close collaboration between the local government of the Industrial Zone and Bossard. A traditional lion dance and visit to the engineering laboratory concluded a successful opening of Bossard’s new location.
