Magnet Harlequin Opens in Asia

In April 2011 Magnet Harlequin opened its first production studio in China as a result of a further new business win, this time a significant Packaging Artwork Tender for a Global DIY Chain. Alan Wright, MD, says “We have been closely monitoring the Far East for years. The Board agreed late last year that we would set up in the region during 2011 to service our growing list of leading European retailers. This Tender win has hastened the process and our retail clients are delighted. The operation (which will be known as Magnet Harlequin Asia) really does have huge potential and we are all extremely excited at the opportunity ahead”.

Richard Beadle, Director of Packaging, comments further: “Our clients offshore print and packaging supply chain challenges increase by the day and our deep understanding of their needs has driven us to create innovative solutions, be it Pack reengineering through to Print Quality Management, that deliver time and cost savings and increase speed to market. The facility, based in Hong Kong will closely mirror the award winning UK operation and will leverage the same technology and productivity efficiencies that are the envy of our industry”.
