Team Visit To China
Members of the JMDA Design team have recently returned from a trip to China where they gained valuable experience not only of the manufacturing process used in the production of Child Restraint Systems but also the culture and environment in China.
Product Design Engineer Emma Harris and CAD Engineer Chris Lester visited clients in Shenzhen, Dongguan, Ningbo and Shanghai and have taken their first steps towards project and client account management in one of the strongest markets for JMDA.
Derrick Barker, Managing and Creative Director at JMDA Design Ltd explains ‘As part of both engineering skill and personal development, it was important that Chris and Emma were given the opportunity to visit our Chinese clients where they were able to discuss in detail their projects and gain a better understanding of the customer’s design needs and requirements.’ He adds, ‘Having a good understanding of the Chinese manufacturing environment and culture is vital to the team producing cost efficient quality engineered designs.’
Talking of his trip to China Chris Lester explains ‘It has been really useful for Emma and I to make the trip to China this year. Visiting mould makers, injection moulding and product assembly areas in manufacturing factories around China has given us a valuable insight into the manufacturing process and informs the design process.’
