Germany-based Kelheim Fibres GmbH has opened its first office in Asia. The Shunlong-Kelheim Fibres
office, located in Shanghai, will serve as Kelheim Fibres’ and its Dolan GmbH subsidiary’s
representative in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
“Chinese fiber producers cannot yet meet the current market need for specialty fibers,” said
Robert Gregan, CEO, Kelheim Fibres and Dolan. “China’s five-year plan focuses on the development of
textile and nonwoven specialties — this is a major opportunity for us now that we are actively
working the Chinese market.”
Li Zhen, manager of Shundong-Kelheim, and his staff will provide customer and technical
assistance to existing customers, as well as develop new Asian markets for the company.
