The success of ECM in China: strategic expansion in the heart of Asia

4 April 2024

ECM is promoting cooperation between Asia and Europe in the fields of certification and testing through strategic international partnerships.

Ente Certificazione Macchine has recently undertaken an extremely fruitful business trip to the Asia-Pacific region. Led by our CEO Luca Bedonni, we have strengthened our strategic partnerships in China, exploring new opportunities for international collaboration in testing and certification.

During our visit to our long-standing partner ECM Shanghai, we had the privilege of meeting some of the most renowned laboratories in China. In particular, our meeting with Shanghai Fire Fighting Equipment Quality Inspection and Testing has opened doors to potential collaborations for the certification of a wide range of products.

Moreover, the partnership with SEARI – Shanghai Electrical Apparatus Research Institute promises to lead to significant developments in certification and testing. Founded in 1953, this institute represents a true milestone in China’s electricity sector. Recognized as one of the first Chinese electrical laboratories, SEARI stands out as a technical competence center, with a significant impact both nationally and internationally. Being actively involved in numerous technical committees of prominent organizations, it plays a leadership role in defining the standards and regulations of the industry.

Lastly, it’s crucial to highlight the importance of our valuable collaborator, GTS – Global Testing Services Co., Ltd., which continues to play a pivotal role in our journey towards global success. The collaboration with GTS further enriches our commitment to providing reliable and high-quality services at international level.

The trip to China marked a crucial moment for ECM, which continues to stand out in the certification and testing landscape, thanks to its dedication to excellence and collaboration with strategic partners around the world.

With an eye towards the future, Ente Certificazione Macchine is committed to maintaining and strengthening these relationships. We are always ready to face the new challenges the market presents us with and to explore opportunities for mutual success with our partners.
