LUXEMBOURG SAF-HOLLAND S.A., a leading supplier to the global truck and trailer industry, has restructured its business in China.
The company’s entire production and administrative operations have been consolidated in Xiamen, and as a result, the production of trailer axles has been relocated from the Jinan location to Xiamen, and the Jinan location has been closed. In order to be closer to customers, sales and marketing have been centralized in Shanghai. Frank Chao is the new general manager of SAF-HOLLAND (Xiamen) Co. Ltd. Chao has more than 22 years of experience in the construction and truck industry.
Trailer axle systems and trailer landing legs are currently produced in Xiamen.
“We will rapidly expand the location into a hub for SAF-HOLLAND’s entire Asian business, with a principal focus on the developing China transportation market,” said CEO Rudi Ludwig.
The company is expecting significant growth in the region over the next four years.
“Products that focus on the price and quality standards of the Asian market will also help us achieving this. Our goal is to offer a complete product range for trucks and trailers from the Xiamen location,” added Ludwig.
The group currently employs approximately 270 people in China.
