9 Success Story BMH Technology China Joins FinChi in 2012 First Project In 2014 WFOE Setup In 2016 Pre-registration solution Recruit local sales team with one experienced Finn & one sales engineer Focus on marketing & sales Joins Finpro CleanTech program Won first project in China Expand local team with project support functions Feasibility study of legal entity in China Four big on-going projects in China Fully functional subsidiary (sales team, sourcing team, project support team) We at BMH have been using FinChi services for the last three years. We have found them most useful particularly in the back-office functions support which has allowed us to concentrate on what we had come to China to do; which was to get our products out there in the market as quickly and efficiently as possible. Setting up a business in a country like China that is surging ahead but has a very different culture and language, can be challenging for Finnish SMEs. Having access to office infrastructure and professional people who understand both China s business culture, Finnish business culture and speak the common language of English, gives the security and confidence that is needed when entering a new market. Minna Vilkuna, Country Manager, BMH Technology China
