Since then, the Company has invested in 4,500 square meters of production facilities, providing improved service to customers in China, and concurrently providing products and technical support services to the Asia Pacific region.
“China is one of Domino’s biggest regional markets,” Johnny Tan, GM at Domino Printing Technology (Chang Shu) Co. Limited, noted. “In order to support the company’s development strategy, we chose Changshu, which is close to our Shanghai headquarters. With this location for our new factory, we will be able to serve the Asia Pacific region more effectively, especially the Chinese market, by improving the efficiency of productions and logistics.”
