Global audiovisual solution provider Verrex announced the opening of a new office in Shanghai, China.
This announcement follows Verrex’s expansion to other parts of the Asia Pacific market, such as Hong Kong and Singapore. Verrex Shanghai Trading Co. will serve as a sales and management base for the company’s professional AV services.
“This is a significant milestone in Verrex’s progress in Asia and our long-term strategy for global operations and service delivery,” said Thomas Berry, Jr., president and CEO of Verrex, in an earlier press release. “Verrex has established a successful model for supporting multinational clients in China. The opening of our Shanghai office will allow us to continue to support their interests and assist new clients seeking to enter or expand in this rapidly developing marketplace.”
Verrex’s Shanghai office follows the company’s most sizeable China-based project to date. The project was an integration of AV systems for the build-out of Duke Kunshan University.
The school is a collaboration between Duke University, based in the United States in Durham, N.C., and China-based Wuhan University along with the city of Kunshan, China. The project consisted of a conference center, academic facilities and student and faculty housing across the school’s 200-acre campus.
Verrex’s Shanghai office is headed by China Business Director David Kwok. Kwok joins Verrex with over 25 years of strategic management experience and deep insight into the Chinese marketplace.
“Clients are requesting the specialized level of integration, support and project coordination expertise Verrex offers,” says Kwok. “There is a need for firms that can offer guidance concurrently to China-based stakeholders and their counterparts in North America and EMEA. We have that expertise and are ideally positioned to serve them.”
