Exopack Advanced Coatings has chosen Guangzhou, in the heart of one of China’s most advanced and dynamic economic regions, as the location for its first distribution center outside the U.S. and U.K.

A March 21 grand opening is planned for the new 10,000-square-foot Exopack Advanced Coatings complex in the Guangzhou Science City – a three-year-old advanced technology center developed with substantial support from the Guangzhou government.

“The new complex will function as the major logistics and distribution center as Exopack Advanced Coatings continues expanding its service and support to the Asian market and growing its customer base in South China and across Mainland China,” says Jeff Jarvis, global business manager for Exopack Advanced Coatings. 

Initially, 7,000 square feet of the new facility will be devoted to storage and processing of the company’s line of Diazo Phototool and Artwork Protect Films (APF). The films are available in a dozen different sizes and, since last summer, have been delivered in environmentally friendly packaging with sealed foil bags that open easily and are fully reclosable.

The remaining 3,000 square feet will house an office, laboratory and training center. After four years with the company, Vincent Chen, sales and distribution manager for China, will oversee operation of the new Guangzhou site. Hiring of additional staff is now underway.

The new presence, company officials believe, will further distinguish their products and services from the competition’s offerings and enhance Exopack Advanced Coatings’ leading position in the market.
