EDI establishes Chinese presence

Flat-die manufacturer Extrusion Dies Industries LLC (Chippewa Falls, WI) has opened a wholly-owned subsidiary in Shanghai to provide technical support, rework service, and spare parts for flat extrusion and coating dies built by EDI in the U.S. EDI plans to formally introduce the new company this month at Chinaplas (Stand 1D-605).

Jason Yin, a native of China with engineering experience in China and North America, is GM of the new operation, supervising an initial staff of 10 manufacturing and technical service specialists at a 1000-sq-m facility at Songjiang, about 25 km from downtown Shanghai. He has already worked for EDI for two years as a consultant and as coordinator of the project to establish EDI China.

EDI China will provide sales support for EDI’s agent in China, Kodama Chemical Industry Co. Ltd. “EDI China will provide local access to technical service and rework service for users of the hundreds of EDI dies operating in the region, and will ensure new customers that our full support is readily available at startup and long after the sale,” said Thomas Callahan, EDI’s president and CEO, who added China is “the world’s fastest-growing market for flat dies.”—[email protected]
