SupplyOn has its roots in the European automotive industry. This makes it all the more exciting to closely observe and support the dynamic developments in China. China is considered a forerunner in the field of electromobility, with numerous start-ups in this space. One of them is Seres, a subsidiary of the Chongqing SOKON Industry Group, one of the largest Chinese OEMs. During his recent trip to China, our CEO Markus Quicken had the honor to visit this company, including a factory tour and test drive.

It is quite remarkable how Seres has built a completely new plant in Chongqing out of the ground within a very short period of time, virtually on a greenfield site. Not to mention how much importance the company attached to highly digitized processes right from the start. But also the new model, which was recently unveiled at the 18th Shanghai Auto Show and now rolls off the assembly line here, is convincing.

Manager Business Development China

Business development team mainly takes two roles - ‘Diplomatist’ and ‘Doctor’. As a ‘Diplomatist’, I am responsible for all marketing activities and external communication in Asia. As a ‘Doctor’, I am helping customers to diagnose their pain points and propose a ‘prescription’.

With my former experience as Consultant and Consulting Manager in the company for 7 years, I am familiar with the processes and challenges of the branch and support customers and colleagues in terms of requirement analysis and solution proposals. Therefore I could contribute some interesting topics and experience from two roles to this blog.
