Renishaw announced that its subsidiary Renishaw (Taiwan) Inc has moved to a significantly larger facility within the Taichung City Precision Machinery Innovation Technology Park. The office was officially opened on October 5, 2016 with a ceremony that was performed by senior Renishaw managers, Government officials and representatives from Taiwanese industry. The new office covers over 1,100 square meters and includes product showrooms, training facilities and live demonstration areas, allowing Renishaw to offer enhanced commercial and technical support to customers.
“2016 is the 16th year of Renishaw's direct presence in Taiwan, and the new office represents our continuing commitment to the market”, said Mr Chobby Lai, Country Manager of Renishaw (Taiwan) Inc. “The new facility enables us to demonstrate our full range of market leading industrial metrology products and it is also testimony to our strong commitment to offer a high level of service and support to our end users, OEM customers, distributors and partners, as we aim to help raise efficiency and product quality for local manufacturers.”
Renishaw opened its first representative office in Taiwan in 2000 and established a subsidiary in 2008, although the company's precision measurement technology was introduced to the market by its long-term Taiwanese distributors, MTC and Usync, more than 25 years ago.
As well as its full range of market leading industrial metrology products, including probe sensors for CMMs and CNC machine tools, calibration systems, position encoders, flexible gauging systems, and Raman spectroscopy products, Renishaw is also actively promoting and sharing its advanced metal additive manufacturing (3D printing) technology in Taiwan. As a world leader in the design and manufacture of metal 3D printing systems, Renishaw is committed to sharing its innovation, knowledge and experience with the Taiwanese manufacturing industry.
The official opening ceremony was performed by Mr Lai, together with Jean-Marc Meffre, Managing Director of Renishaw Far East; the Honourable George Norris, Acting Deputy Representative of the British Office Taipei; the Honourable Mi-Ching Tsai, Deputy Minister of Ministry of Science & Technology, R.O.C; Mr. Carl Huang, Secretary General, of the Taiwan Machine Tool and Accessory Builders Association (TMBA), and Mr. Samuel Shieh, Chairman of Quaser Machine Tools Inc.
