"We have experienced a dramatic level of sustained growth in our HOST(SM) services business which helps our western OEM customers manage their offshore manufacturing activities in China. The addition of another office strategically located in a different area of Shenzhen will help us accommodate this growth in demand, while making it more efficient for us to monitor and support manufacturing activities across the entire Shenzhen and Guangdong area," commented Howell Wang, Managing Director of Riverwood Solutions China, Ltd. "More and more small and mid-sized OEMs from the US and Europe realize the importance of local supply chain management and have come to embrace the value proposition of our unique HOST(SM) model as an integral part of how they run their business. The addition of another regional office in Southern China provides us with access to an expanded pool of highly skilled operations and supply chain professionals to support the growing needs of our diverse customer base," continued Wang.

The new location replaces the company's original office in the Baoan district and is located in the OCT (Oversea Chinese Town), Nanshan district. According to Mr. Wang, "The new location is strategically chosen in the hub of city connecting to both the Shenzhen Airport and Hong Kong customs to facilitate our visiting western customers and our team's regular travel between the component suppliers and Shenzhen. The new location also complements to our Minzhi office located near Shenzhen North Railway Station, one of Shenzhen's main transportation hubs."
