Automated material handling solutions provider Intelligrated said today it named Danny Liang general director for China, replacing Rod Selby, who helped launch the operation nearly two years ago. Liang will be based at the company's Shanghai office, its only location in China.
Selby will become senior operations and solutions consultant, international, and will provide consulting support to all of the company's international locations, Mason, Ohio-based Intelligrated said.
Intelligrated opened the Shanghai office in March 2014. The company followed that with a second round of expansion in October 2014, when it moved its operations in China, Brazil, and Canada into larger offices.
The Shanghai location serves as Intelligrated's sales and engineering office for the Asia-Pacific region and is the site of its business development and systems-design work. Intelligrated still runs the manufacturing efforts for these jobs in the U.S., but said it plans to expand Chinese operations to include manufacturing.
Liang brings local expertise, with previous experience working at other multinational material handling companies, Intelligrated said.
