  •  German BBG opens second branch in China & subsidiary in the US
  •  Manufacturer of moulds & machinery, focusing on polyurethane

German BBG, the manufacturer of moulds, machinery and systems for the polyurethane industry, expands its international presence by adding a further branch in Shanghai and by establishing a subsidiary in the USA.

With their second Asian branch, in addition to the company’s headquarters in Changchun, BBG’s wholly owned Chinese subsidiary P-PEQ primarily plans to cater to companies in the Greater Shanghai area. At the beginning, the new branch will be responsible for customer service as well as the installation of moulds and mould carriers, and on-site mould modifications. The decisive factor for selecting this location was the close proximity to well-known BBG customers such as Webasto, Fuyao, Hennecke and Saint Gobain, which can all be reached within 30 minutes from the new office. The customer service department of the P-PEQ headquarters at Changchun will continue to cater to customers from the North of China. P-PEQ received its certification in accordance with DIN EN ISO 9001ff at the end of 2013. The company is thus able to benefit from the trend that Chinese standards are increasingly recognized and appreciated as a sign of quality products and services.

BBG also plans to establish its own subsidiary in Oxford, Michigan, USA, in summer. BBG North America will replace the previous industrial agency and is designed to be the contact for customers from the USA, Mexico and Canada. In addition to sales and customer service, the subsidiary is going to take over in particular the change management for moulds. A 5-axis milling machine has already been ordered from Vision Wide, a Taiwanese manufacturer.
