CT-Concept Technologie AG, worldwide market leader in IGBT gate drivers, has strengthened its local presence in one of the main growth markets for power electronics. From January 1st, the CONCEPT office in Shenzhen started work to support local customers with highly qualified technical support. "Within the scope of CONCEPT's growth strategy, our presence in China is an important step toward realizing our ambitious sales targets. It not only does justice to our most important existing market, but also to the fact that China continues to record the fastest growth rates in the power conversion sector. The Chinese government's new five year plan forms a stable framework for growth in this segment and encourages us to invest consistently in China," noted CEO Wolfgang Ademmer. Winson Wei, 28, has been appointed by CONCEPT as Managing Director of its technical office in Shenzhen. He is completely familiar with the high-performance electronics scene in China, and was previously responsible for technical support and training of the sales team at one of main distributors of power electronics. His experience extends across the whole range of power electronics systems, all the way from microcontrollers, via IGBT drivers up to IGBT modules. "CONCEPT's products enjoy an excellent reputation in China. I look forward to consolidating the brand and to building our business up further with competent technical support and best-in-class solutions. Our main focus will be on the traction, HVDC and renewable energies markets. By choosing Shenzhen as a location, we have opted for one of China's three industrial nodes. Shenzhen is widely regarded as a boom-town and has excellent logistical links," added Wei. Wei began his new function on January 1, 2011. The new office address is: Room 2707, Building C, Tiley Central Plaza, Haide Third Road, Nanshan District, Shenzhen, China, 518054. www.igbt-driver.com
