BDD establishes a Thermamax Corporation in Taicang delivering first prototypes

Thermamax on track for success in China

The new established corporation Taicang Thermamax High Temperature Insulation Equipment Co., Ltd. is based in Taicang (Jiangsu province) in the modern Rhine River Center.

The new established corporation Taicang Thermamax High Temperature Insulation Equipment Co., Ltd. is based in Taicang (Jiangsu province) in the modern Rhine River Center.

At the end of 2013 BDD Holdings GmbH, (the holding company for Thermamax Hochtemperaturdämmungen GmbH in Germany and Thermamax Inc. in USA), established a corporation in Taicang, close to Shanghai. In mid-July the licensing arrangements were successfully concluded. For the Mannheim-based specialist in High-Temperature Insulations, founding the Taicang Thermamax High Temperature Insulation Equipment Co.Ltd. represents a further step in their international growth strategy.

Having a presence close to existing and internationally active customers was one of the principal drivers for Thermamax to open a branch in China. Thanks to cooperation arrangements with local manufacturing companies, customers in China, and Asia generally, can have Thermamax tried and tested products delivered directly from Taicang. That means shorter delivery times, a simpler business model, and ensures conditions concerning Local-Content are met.     

The new company headquarters is in Taicang’s Rhine River Center, about an hour by road north of the economic metropolis of Shanghai. Taicang, with 500,000 population and situated in Jiangsu Province, is very much the German model city in China with nearly 200 German companies represented there.

Initially the business activities of the new company will focus on the Marine market sector. However it is planned to gradually develop those markets in which Thermamax is already established worldwide outside China, including Automotive, On-und Off-Highway, Oil&Gas, and Power Generation.

In August this year Thermamax China delivered the first prototypes of an insulation cladding system for a complex exhaust line. The complete manufacturing process was successfully audited by customer representatives.

Jochen Früh, General Manager of Taicang Thermamax High Temperature Insulation Equipment Co., Ltd and his team, intend to further expand the success of the Thermamax Group in China.
