Welcome to Hermes China
Hermes Abrasives (Shanghai) Co. Ltd. was established in 2005. However Hermes Abrasives has a much longer history in China. Hermes established a representative office in Beijing in 1998. The day-to-day responsibility for this office came under the control of Hermes Abrasives Singapore.
As the years passed and sales expanded, it was decided to establish Hermes sales representation in Shanghai in 2002. A sales office was established to offer a better level of service to Hermes customers in this region of China.
As the business grew and demands to offer quicker service to expanding customer base became increased, in October 2004, Hermes Hamburg decided to open a new subsidiary in China.
Shanghai was chosen from among a number of suitable locations. Its central location within China, the increasing development of its infrastructure and its reputation as a “logistics hub” for the sale and distribution of products in China and North Asia were deciding factors in the choice. It was decided to establish the new company in Qingpu Industrial Zone, a very large industrial zone on the edge of Shanghai. The factory was officially opened on 10th June 2005.
The market in China is an exciting opportunity for Hermes where a multitude of different abrasive applications allow Hermes to present our many abrasive finishing solutions. Of particular opportunity is the introduction of the Hermes Premium types in high level technical finishing applications. New grain types such as Ceramic and abrasive constructions such as “Hermesit” hollow ball and “Mercurit” agglomerate are now market leaders in such applications.
Hermes China core manufactured products are convertor rolls, narrow belts and wide belts in both single and segmented forms. We enjoy good success in a number of markets in China with most growth and future potential coming from the Stainless Steel finishing in both sheet and tubes, Metal profile finishing, Timber Panel and Flooring, Aerospace, Automotive and Specialized Distributor markets.
We look forward to the opportunity to assist in meeting your finishing requirements
