Tonghe Textile Machinery Manufacture Co., Ltd.
Special Interview with Mr. Qu Zhenhui,
SHARING YOUR LIFE
We interviewed Mr. Qu Zhenhui, director of the Tonghe Textile Machinery Manufacture Co., Ltd., a spinning machine manufacturer that signed a sales cooperation agreement for the Link Coner.
Please provide us with some background as to why you became interested in Muratec as an automatic winder to link with your spinning machine. Do you think that the linking method will be in demand in the Chinese market?
Mr. Qu ZhenhuiWe requested the Japanese firm Muratec because it has a proven record of high reliability and success with the Link Coner, and above all, continues to innovate technology regularly. I am glad to establish this new relationship with Muratec. As already mentioned, soaring labor costs and labor shortages will be unavoidable problems in the future in the Chinese spinning market. We started full-scale production of spinning machines in 2011, and the Link Coner is already in demand. In the future, we expect that investment in spinning machines and automatic winders according to the linking method will increase on a market scale.
What is your target?
Mr. Qu ZhenhuiHow do you foresee the market moving in China in the future?
First, we aim to break into the top three in the Chinese spinning machine market by 2015. Basically, this means that we will not forego low price competition but make a push to succeed with quality and technical capabilities. We expect that the direct linking method with Muratec will largely contribute to our success due to market needs.
What do you expect from Muratec in the future?
Mr. Zhang JianxinIt is for both of us, as manufacturers, to keep technical innovations in focus. First, I would like to make the witness linking test with both parties present a success which will be carried out in Tonghe’s factory in May and June, 2013. Under circumstances where demand for the linking method will increase, we would like to strive for technical innovations, and cooperate with each other toward market development and sales expansion.
