Injection moulding machinery manufacturer Ningbo Haitian Group Co., Ltd. of Ningbo, China, appointed a new management team for its subsidiary Haitian Europe S.p.A., Cazzago San Martino (Brescia) of Italy. Both new managing directors, Eric Taveau and Uwe Baer, join the company with many years of experience in the injection moulding machinery business. Managing director Eric Taveau has been responsible for Haitian Europe’s Sales and Service department since 1 May, 2006. Managing director Uwe Baer was head of Haitian Europe’s Finances and Administration department since January 2006. Pietro Nicolazzi, former managing director of Haitian Europe S.p.A., will remain responsible for the exclusive distribution of Haitian machines in Italy and for after-sales support for Italian customers. For this purpose, he founded HT Italy, an independent corporation, in Cazzago San Martino (Brescia). Like all other European Haitian representations, HT Italy will utilise Haitian Europe’s range of services. Haitian Europe will also operate a Support Centre for its European representatives with responsibility for spare parts supply, and a Technical Centre for training the representation’s personnel. Ningbo Haitian Group aims at increasing its share in the European injection moulding machine market from 10% to 15% by 2010. In order to attain this objective, the company will successively step up the number of representatives and expand the sales presence across Europe.
