U.S.-based Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has opened a technology center in Shanghai to serve China-based customers across a range of industries, in particular, life sciences, environmental monitoring and consumer product safety.
The China technology center, along with a new demonstration center opening this month in Beijing, is part of Thermo Fisher's continuing strategy to align with the leading educational, industrial and commercial initiatives in the region. The company first entered the China market 30 years ago and began to establish an extensive manufacturing footprint shortly thereafter.
In 2005, Thermo Fisher accelerated its activities in China, opening a demonstration laboratory in Shanghai. It has since introduced a Chinese version of its Fisher Scientific catalog and established the headquarters for its environmental instruments business in the country.
