Uster To Establish Manufacturing In China

Uster Technologies AG, Switzerland, plans to establish manufacturing and development operations in
China. “China is now a significant market for Uster Technologies,” said Geoffrey Scott, Ph.D., CEO.
“Our customers have benefited from recent investments in our long-established sales and service
operation to increase our presence in all the major textile areas, with local sales and service
engineers in Beijing, Shanghai, Qingdao, Urumuqi and Wuhan. This decision is part of Uster
Technologies strategy to significantly invest in the Chinese market and grow business with products
manufactured for the domestic Chinese market.”

The location of the planned operation has not been determined.
