WANdisco announces China wholly foreign owned enterprise
WANdisco (LSE: WAND), a provider of high-availability software for global enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data and distributed software development, today announced WANdisco China (officially WANdisco Software Chengdu Ltd), a Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprise (“WFOE”), in Chengdu, China, aimed at expanding activities in the region. From its China office, WANdisco will provide sales, training, consulting and 24/7 customer support for its software solutions sold in the country.
WANdisco joins an extensive list of global companies with a presence in Chengdu, which has become an emerging base in China for IT companies, including IBM, Apple, Cisco, NOKIA, Canon, HP, Xerox, Microsoft, Dell and more. WANdisco China will serve as WANdisco’s China headquarters, supporting the Company’s existing sales office in Beijing. The company will continue to expand sales and support offices in Shanghai and other key locations.
“We view China as an emerging and high growth market for WANdisco,” said David Richards, CEO of WANdisco. “It was a natural progression to establish our Chengdu office as a WFOE and ramp up staff there as so many companies have operations in the country. We are excited about this announcement and look forward to the growth opportunities this brings.”
In July 2012, WANdisco announced a key enterprise installation of its Application Life Cycle (ALM) Subversion MultiSite solution with Huawei. The premier smartphone and communications solution provider purchased Subversion MultiSite to solve network latency issues between China and Canada.
