Overview

Murata Electronics Trading (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., one of the sales companies of Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. in China, recently established the Xi'an Branch, which is ready to start operating on July 27. This is the trading company's fifth outpost following its branches in Suzhou, Hangzhou, Chengdu and Chongqing.

Background

In recent years, the business center in the Greater China Region has been moving away from the coastal areas to the interior areas, and the establishment of new production bases and R&D bases and relocation of existing bases have evolved into a prominent trend. Start - up companies based in the interior are experiencing solid growth, and the search for ways and means to step up their sales activities in the interior, meet the requirements of their customers in a timely manner and provide more individualized services have become an important issue on their operations agenda.

Xi'an is a major city that is a typical example of a metropolitan area located in the interior, and where many companies involved with communications have chosen to situate their research and development bases. As such, Murata has viewed this area as extremely important in its plans to expand its business in the future, and it decided to establish a new branch in Xi'an.

The Xi'an Branch is tasked mainly with selling the products of the Murata Group and providing services to customers in the Xi'an area. It marks the first time that engineers will be permanently stationed at one of the company's interior bases, and the company believes that the technical support provided to date from Shanghai will now be made available in a more individualized and timely manner. In the future, while giving due consideration to setting up additional bases, the company aims to continue its push to strengthen its customer support systems in the interior.
