Landia receives new order in China ‘post-coronavirus’
Landia has sold a new batch of chopper pumps to China with the reopening of its Shanghai office, after the COVID-19 outbreak. The 18.5 kW pumps will be used for a liquid manure application at a dairy farm in northern China. The company that purchased the pumps, which is based in Zhengzhou, the capital of China's Henan province, is expanding and ordered its first unit from Landia five years ago.
Thorkild Maagaard, Landia's export sales director, said: "It is very heartening to see life returning to normal for people, including our hard-working team in China, who have been extremely diligent whilst working from home.
"Our sales manager Danny Zhang is already very busy bringing us new enquiries, and our business development manager, Ya Sun, is also back at our office in Shanghai after more than four weeks of total isolation at home.
"The heating and air conditioning aren't back on yet (hence wearing coats!), but everyone is relieved to be back at work and get on with doing business. We are very proud of our resilient team in China who have shown tremendous determination throughout such a challenging time."
