Qingdao Scaffolding is China’s biggest manufacturer of scaffolding systems for the export market. Euan Youdale spoke to the company’s managing director and owner Jack Zhang about its plans.
Expansion is on the horizon at Qingdao Scaffolding Co. Ltd, as the company looks to sell its products outside of its main market Europe. Some 70% of its products are currently sold in Northern Europe, where its subsidiaries in Sweden and the Netherlands, as well as offices in Germany and France, reflect where the company’s main markets are. It also has a subsidiary in Australia, another of its major markets, but produces all its products for the worldwide market in China.
Talking about specific products, Mr Zhang adds, “The ringlock system will be the biggest scaffolding system, I think it is taking the number one place if you consider different countries and markets overall, but specifically in Europe.”
