TechnoAlpin makes its presence felt in China, too
TechnoAlpin specializes in designing and installing snowmaking systems for ski resorts all over the world. For several years, TechnoAlpin's local representative for China has been our commercial partner Melchers Techexport GmbH, which handles the sales, start-up, maintenance and repair of our systems in China.
TechnoAlpin has been working closely with Melchers since 2004, when the first snowmaking systems were installed in China at the Pingshan Ski Resort and the Beijing Jundushan Ski Resort. The project then involved two M18 guns at Pingshan and two A9 manual lances with compressor at Beijing Jundushan.
Our first automatic snowmaking system in China was installed in 2010 at Xiling Snow Mountain, near Chengdu.
In February, together with Melchers, TechnoAlpin opened a service center in Beijing, not far from the country's main ski resorts. The center boasts 500 m² of space and is equipped with a warehouse for products and spare parts, plus conference and training rooms. With its proximity to Beijing airport, a central location and excellent transport links, the service center is well placed to offer high-quality customer support.
Last winter, the first training course held in the new center was a great success, drawing over 50 attendees from ski resorts throughout China. The course will become a regular annual encounter between the Chinese technicians and experts from TechnoAlpin and Melchers.
TechnoAlpin is investing heavily over the coming years in the Chinese ski market, and interesting projects are in the pipeline for the near future. Thanks to our strong partnership with Melchers Techexport, TechnoAlpin has an excellent basis for forging ahead with confidence.
