El Segundo, CA. — May 5, 2004 — Soldering systems supplier Vitronics Soltec has selected's enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to support the company's recently established production facilities in China.

In April 2002, Vitronics Soltec opened a new sales and support office in Shanghai, China. The new production facilities and sales and support offices add to Vitronics Soltec's existing Asia Pacific presence, with a key installation in Singapore and representation in Korea and Malaysia (Penang).

Vitronics Soltec maintains worldwide manufacturing, sales and service facilities in Europe, the Americas and the Asia Pacific region.

In addition to their existing facilities, Vitronics Soltec said it will now be implementing at their production site in China.

"China is a huge market and an economy that continues to progress rapidly, and many of our customers are located there. Being a labor-intensive manufacturing company as we are, and considering the low cost, establishing a production site in China is a logical step," commented Kees Onstein, director of operations for Vitronics Soltec. "We have found a good partner in Glovia International. They have a worldwide presence and are able to support us in regards to the local requirements, as China is known for bureaucracy and control by the government and special business and reporting rules apply."

Glovia said its parent company, Fujitsu, has the capacity to deliver hardware, software and service solutions on a localized basis because of its presence in China.

"We at Glovia of course benefit from the strong China presence of Fujitsu and offer extended ERP solutions to global manufacturers," said Ben van Eck, managing director for Glovia International EMEA. "Glovia professionals have solid knowledge of the Chinese language and requirements and work closely with companies that expand into the region."
