PIMOT with the Polish Automotive Group enters Chinese market

Polish Investment and Trade Agency perceive the potential of the automotive industry, therefore together with PIMOT and PGM aims to obtain IATF certification, which will enable Polish entrepreneurs to compete and develop brands on foreign markets.

One of the actions taken by Automotive Industry Institute (PIMOT) are efforts to obtain accreditation for the implementation of IATF certification both in Poland (in Europe) and in China. There are over 500 companies in Poland that are ISO TS 16949 or IATF 16949 certified, and there is no national certification body. The entry of Polish PIMOT into the Chinese market is due to the fact that many Chinese producers try and want to appear in Poland and Europe. However, the lack of knowledge of European standards, including requirements in the area of meeting quality standards is a blocking the expansion to our continent.

For over a year, Automotive Industry Institute (PIMOT) has been cooperating closely with the association of national automotive companies - the Polish Automotive Group (PGM), which has been resulting in closer and more effective diagnosis and systematization of the problems of the automotive industry. The involvement of the Polish unit, PIMOT, can bring double benefits to the industry in both countries. First of all, the quality control of automotive products from the Middle Kingdom. Above all, it is a great chance to build a recognizable and strong position of Polish brands in the world. Soon, at the initiative of PGM, the representative office of the Association will be opened in China to support Polish automotive factories in their expansion to the Chinese market and to develop their cooperation with Chinese partners. Their market is extremely perspective, not only because of its scale, but in particular because of its technological advancement in the area of electro mobility. PGM has already started talks about cooperation with the Polish Investment and Trade Agency (PAIH).

- The spectrum of automotive cooperation between Poland and China has recently expanded significantly. A novelty is the high interest of Chinese companies in this segment investing in our country. Currently, PAIH is working on 6 investment projects in the automotive industry from the Middle Kingdom, some of them concerning electromobility. On the other hand, Polish automotive manufacturers are trying to join a wide stream of supplies to this one of the largest markets in the world - said Tomasz Pisula, president of PAIH.

PAIH will support PGM in entering the Chinese market, including the process of registration of representation, business intelligence and promotional activities.

- In addition, in December we want to show the potential of domestic automotive industry during the largest Asian sector event, Automechanic in Shanghai – added Tomasz Pisula.
