Leading Chinese newspaper turns the spotlight on Hatch’s growth
July 23, 2012
Hatch’s enhanced presence in China was recently addressed in an article featured in the South China Morning Post.
Hatch’s profile was raised when the company received several qualification licenses to deliver engineering services to the country’s metallurgical industry. The licenses give Hatch the same status as other design firms in the country and enable the company to deliver a broad range of engineering, technical and equipment supply services.
With cumulative experience in China exceeding 20 years, Hatch has aligned its long-term growth strategy with its clients and the country’s 12th five-year development plan. Plans are to invest in the local workforce to ensure that China becomes a strong Hatch hub, especially as it plays an increasing role as the company’s major procurement center.
Hatch participated in two major projects in China last year: the QSLIC magnesium smelter in Golmund, Qinghai, in which Hatch is providing engineering, equipment custom design and project implementation; and the Galaxy Resources Jiangsu lithium carbonate plant, where Hatch provided full engineering, procurement and construction management services.
Hatch is also exploring opportunities in local oil sands development, and exploring the possibility of providing the patented N-Solv technology to Chinese companies, especially due to the increasing environmental and energy concerns which are highlighted in China’s 12th five-year plan.
