The Cavagna Group has taken another important step in its operational development in the Chinese market and established a new import/export company.

The compressed gas equipment manufacturer said it had long viewed China as one of the most attractive markets for the group’s international growth.

The new company – Zhongshan Cavagna Import and Export Co., Ltd – will be located near Cavagna’s production facility in Zhongshan, Guangdong province.

“The opening of the import/export company further expands on the strategic marketing plan that Cavagna has had in place for several years now,” a spokesman from Cavagna explained.

“The Cavagna Group has a long history of doing business in China. It started with some simple export operations, but was then strengthened with the opening of a sales office in Shanghai.”

“One of the most significant developments took place in 2005, when Cavagna opened a production facility in Zhongshan, the heart of China’s manufacturing province, Guangdong, and just a stone’s throw from Hong Kong and Guangzhou.”

“That brings us to today, with the establishment of Zhongshan Cavagna Import and Export in the summer of 2018.”

Cavagna’s current production facility manufactures domestic and industrial pressure regulators for propane, butane and LPG. Thanks to the new company, Cavagna will now be able to expand to many more fields of application and thus cover other business areas including: natural gas distribution networks, the widespread use of natural gas, industrial applications, cryogenic medical gases, automotive applications, and the most advanced gas transport technology.

Zhongshan Cavagna Import and Export is managed by Huai Chen Huang, who has moved to China to be in charge of the local market after 10 years of service at Cavagna Group Italy as Area Manager of China and other Asian countries.

He said, “Over the last few years, Chinese consumers have been going through a growth process. They are now more conscious buyers who demand greater product quality and who increasingly want the best value for their money.”
