In order to optimally meet the specific needs for compounding solutions from high-end customers in the Chinese market, as well as providing enhanced services to customers in China and even the rest of Asia, Buss AG has invested in establishing a legal entity, BUSS Compounding Solutions (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. in Shanghai.

Dr. Philip Nising, CEO and President of Buss AG said, “BUSS’ business development in China is inseparable from the strong support of customers, government and industry organizations, the media as well as our upstream and downstream suppliers and partners. It is with their support that B
