Grand Opening in Ningbo
At Hoyer, we have recently completed our new and updated facilities in Ningbo, China. In addition to enhancing our office spaces, we have expanded our factory and upgraded the test center. This strategic investment in Ningbo is aimed at bolstering our capacity to meet the substantial growth opportunities within the Asian market.
With the new regional headquarters in Ningbo, China, Hoyer is creating enhanced prospects for new services and solutions.
“The new facilities in Ningbo holds several commercial and operational opportunities, and we are confident that it will add value and take Hoyer Asia to the next level,” says Henrik Sørensen, CEO, Hoyer.
“By investing in our Chinese facilities, we are showing our customers and partners that we are ready to support the huge growth potential that exists in Asia. The aim is to ensure that we can bring value to both new and existing customers; and with the new facilities we have an optimal setup for a fast supply chain, high quality and local service and support,” states Henrik Sørensen.
Grand Opening in Ningbo
The opening of the new facilities were marked 30 May 2023 where customers and other business partners from Asia were invited for a special opening ceremony. The day was characterised by Chinese traditions such as lion dance and modern Chinese performances as well as different official opening speeches.
Henrik Sørensen’s opening speech focused on Hoyer’s strategic outlook and the overall enrvironmental approach.
”A core part of our strategy is to assume leadership in the Green Transition within our industry by being an Environmental Challenger. We wish to create both financial and green value for our customers,” says Henrik Sørensen.
This was supported by speeches from distinguished guests Mikael Winther, Consul General of Denmark in Shanghai and Xing Wenhua, Chairman of the board, Shanghai Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineering (SSNAME).
“Governments alone do not make strong cooperation. It is important that Chinese, Danish and International commercial players also continue to work together and to contribute to the global fight against climate change, in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals,” says Mikael Winther and continues:
“A company like Hoyer with almost 50 years’ experience providing efficient and powerful electric motors, can exactly contribute with their green and sustainable solution to the global Maritime’s green transition.”
Xing Wenhua follows:
“At present, the marine industry has entered the stage of technological revolution with decarbonisation and digitisation as the core. Hoyer has also followed the pace of scientific and technological development and introduced new products. The related products provide strong support for reducing the overall carbon emissions of ships by efficient energy conservation and stable quality.”
In many years, the marine industry has been Hoyer’s primary focus in Asia. But in the latest years, there has been an increased and additional focus on domestic markets such as industrial pumps, wind and hydraulics.
Hoyer sees a great match between their solutions and the domestic markets in China, where the environmental focus drives the growth.
“We keep seeing an increased focus on environmental solutions across markets and across industries; and at Hoyer, we are proud to take part in this environmental journey in Asia,” says Henrik Sørensen.
