Wixom, Michigan, January 17, 2017: With the beginning of 2017, dSPACE has significantly strengthened its presence in the People´s Republic of China. The company has recently inaugurated an additional branch office in Beijing, which is set to provide dSPACE´s numerous customers in the capital and in the north of China with highly qualified local contact persons. The new office also provides extensive laboratory space and highly sophisticated technical training facilities to reach the highest standards of customer support.
Broad Portfolio of Services
Interior construction started shortly after the business license for the new Beijing office was obtained in October 2016 and was completed in December 2016. On its overall floor space of almost 300 square meters, the location in Beijing provides extensive room for offices and also features state-of-the-art technical equipment. Thus, the local dSPACE staff will be able to support current and prospective customers in all possible fields of business, from initial pre-sales product consultancy to extensive engineering services and general technical support.
Highly Qualified Personnel
Employees of the Beijing office have been trained in using the comprehensive dSPACE tool chain since May 2016. In addition to their high qualification, they can also rely on the strong support and frequent exchange of information with their colleagues in the well-established local dSPACE company in Shanghai. This will help dSPACE to adapt to the needs of its steadily growing customer base. In Beijing and the north of China, customers include renowned companies and research institutions like BAIC, Brilliance, CATARC, CNR, Great Wall, Weichai, and many more.
Internationalization Progresses Further
The inauguration of the second location in China marks the steady progress of dSPACE´s international expansion. In the aim to always be close to the customers and to provide them with outstanding support as well as fastest response times, dSPACE has extended its global network to 12 locations in 6 countries around the globe. A multitude of distributors ensures the availability of the company´s products in regions with no direct dSPACE representation.
dSPACE develops and distributes integrated hardware and software tools for developing and testing electronic control units and mechatronic controls. The application areas for dSPACE systems are primarily in the automotive industry, but also in drives technology, aerospace, and other industrial sectors. The company’s customer base includes virtually all major vehicle manufacturers and suppliers. With 1,300 employees worldwide, dSPACE is located in Paderborn, Germany; has three project centers in Germany; and serves customers through local dSPACE companies in the USA, the UK, France, Japan, and China.
