SUBSIDIARIESFollowing 102 years of operations at our parent company Maschinenfabrik ALFING Kessler GmbH, we reached another important milestone on 18 April 2013 with the official company opening of Maschinenfabrik ALFING Kessler Shanghai Co. Ltd. We commenced Chinese-based business dealings involving large crankshafts and induction hardening machines around 15 years ago. Since 2005, we have maintained a stand at Marintec Shanghai, the world's largest shipbuilding trade fair.
In order to manage the constantly increasing business volume and new projects, we have greatly increased the frequency of the visits we make to our Chinese business partners. The logical consequence of this was to have constant local representation in China in order to deal with the ever-increasing market demands and market conditions. We currently supply crankshafts to over 10 Chinese engine manufacturers.
