smartGAS: Joint venture in China

smartGAS Mikrosensorik GmbH is significantly expanding its operations in Asia, including a joint venture in China with the company’s long-standing partner SIGAS Measurement Engineering Corp. As of 01/01/2021 the new company smartGAS China Ltd. in Jiangsu Changshu near Shanghai will serve all markets in China and Asia from a central location.

In the past, smartGAS was represented in China, one of the company’s most important markets worldwide, primarily by SIGAS Measurement Engineering Corp. Establishing the joint venture smartGAS China Ltd. will bring smartGAS closer to its customers in this region in the future. The rapidly developing markets of Southeast Asia need market-specific products that are tailored to the requirements of customers. This is possible only with direct access to the market and a strong local team. Products with the greatest sales potential in Asia include sensors for process measuring technology, emissions measurements and detection of sulphur hexafluoride and fumigants.

SIGAS was chosen as a partner for the joint venture because the two companies have already worked together successfully for many years and their product portfolios complement each other perfectly: smartGAS is an expert for OEM sensors and NDIR measuring processes, while SIGAS has been successfully developing and producing gas analysis devices for ten years. In addition to the medium-term goals of improved customer proximity and level of service, smartGAS hopes that the new company will allow further expansion of its market position in Asia.

smartGAS China Ltd. will therefore serve as a sales base and smartGAS agency for the entire Asian economic region, and will be readily available to you as a point of contact.
