Magtrol, a West Seneca manufacturer of motor testing products, has opened a sales and service office in Shanghai, China.
While the company has been selling its products in China for more than a decade, Magtrol expects the Shanghai office will expand its presence in that market, just as many of its customers in North America and Europe are doing, said William Mulroy, the firm's owner and president, in a statement.
Charles Lin, who has been selling Magtrol's equipment in China for more than 10 years, has been named the general manager of the new sales office.
Magtrol's main office and manufacturing plant are in a 34,000-square-foot facility on Gardenville Parkway in West Seneca. The company also has a manufacturing facility and office in Fribourg, Switzerland, along with sales offices in France, Germany, Great Britain and Warsaw, Ind.
