Hydro's precision tubing unit in China has been steadily increasing its amount of deliveries to non-automotive customers, and the company is working to capture more business this year. Thursday was the first day of China Refrigeration 2011, and Hydro was ready in Shanghai.
Hydro's Precision Tubing sector is present with its own stand at China Refrigeration 2011, a three-day trade event being held at the Shanghai New International Expo Center.
This year's show, which ends April 9, is the 22nd edition of China's international exhibition for refrigeration, air-conditioning, heating and ventilation, frozen food processing, packaging and storage.
It is considered one of the leading exhibitions in the HVAC&R industry, focused on end-users and professional buyers. Hydro has participated every year since 2006.
The sales team and part of the technical staff at Hydro's precision tubing plant in Suzhou are participating, talking with current and potential customers about the products and services the company offers.
"The companies using copper are hungry for other materials, and aluminium is the material that is drawing the interest," says Shen Yang, sales manager at the Hydro plant in Suzhou.
"The customer needs to know how to make the change in their technology before they will make the change in material. Hydro can play that role."
