ROTHERHAM business eyeing the lucrative Chinese market are being offered help to go East by one of the UK’s most prominent manufacturing trade organisations.
The PPMA Group of Associations, a non-profit making group representing UK manufacturing is offering their unique Dragon Service to Rotherham manufacturers looking to export to China.
The service which has previously only been open to its members, enables a manufacturer to 'dip their toe in the water' in China with very little risk and at minimal cost.
The PPMA employs a member of staff to operate for a manufacturer.
They will handle all Chinese HR and employment issues. The employee would be re-charged at cost and a small share of the Chinese office overhead.
Chris Buxton, CEO of the PPMA Group, said: “This has proved very popular and effective for our members as an extremely low cost and low risk method of getting exporters into China - a lucrative market that many manufacturers wish to expand into but are either not sure how, or are put off by large market entry costs such as securing office premises.
We would like to hear from any Rotherham manufacturers wishing to explore these markets".
The Dragon service also offers companies chaperoned assistance to China - further details on www.ppma.co.uk/china/china-office.html or interested companies should contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call Grant Collier on 020 8773 8111.
The PPMA group is made up of four trade associations: the Processing and Packaging Machinery Association, the British Automation and Robot Association, the Polymer Machinery Manufacturers and Distributors Association and the
UK Industrial Vision Association.
