Chinese equipment management associations select Siveco China for "Brilliant 40 Years" award in the wake of the 1st China International Import Expo
In November 2018, Siveco China won a "Brilliant 40 Years" prize jointly awarded by the China Electric Power Equipment Management Association and the China Association of Machinery Equipment Maintenance and Renovation. The award name refers to China's 40 years of reform and opening of the Chinese economy, the celebration of which coincides with the 1st China International Import Expo, a major international event. Siveco was the only foreign enterprise and the only maintenance management system supplier to win this prestigious award, attributed by a committee of experts considering the company's achievements, more particularly its track record with domestic clients.
According to the organizer: "Siveco won the award based on its technical strengths, management level and mastery of new technologies such as mobility, IoT and 3D BIM for Operation and Maintenance."
In the past 40 years of Economic Reform and Opening up, China's industry has achieved remarkable progress and the nation has risen to become the world's largest manufacturer. At the same time, industrial equipment operation and maintenance is in the process of breaking away from past management models, gradually building a modern, smart and distinctly Chinese model. Siveco China, a pioneer in the development of Smart Technologies for the Operation & Maintenance of infrastructures and industrial plants, has witnessed the development of Chinese industry in the past 40 years with a rich practical experience in informatization projects, such as Baosteel Gases, Capital Water, COSCO Shanghai Shipping, Sinopacific… and cooperated with Chinese companies on Belt & Road projects all over Asia and Africa.
Siveco China Managing Director Bruno Lhopiteau declared: "Myself and my team feel humbled to receive this award, which reflect our long commitment to the Chinese market: I personally took part in my first maintenance project in China in 1998 and moved to Shanghai permanently in 1999. Siveco China was setup in 2004, our R&D center dedicated to mobility and cloud technologies was established in 2008… We are now exporting our Chinese know-how in smart equipment maintenance on the Belt & Road with Chinese infrastructure builders and investors. With this award, the committee of experts sees us as a fellow-traveler in the past 40 years' development, for which we are most grateful."
As the 1st China International Import Expo taking place in Shanghai is attracting worldwide attention, more than 3,600 companies from different countries hold discussions and seek common development from China and overseas. As President Xi Jinping said in the opening ceremony: "The Chinese economy is a sea, not a pond". China is one of the largest market in the world, numerous opportunities and cooperation ways can be found in China, as one of the greatest development of Economic Reform and Opening up. Siveco China will keep up with the pace of development of the country and stay at the forefront of technological innovation, to support the Chinese industry to enter a smarter stage.
