China is a key market, manufacturing base and supply chain partner for Rolls-Royce. Our market sectors – Civil Aerospace, Marine, Energy and Nuclear – are all closely linked to the strategic economic development of China. Over the past 50 years we have built a strong foundation of success in China, and we'll continue to collaborate with our customers and partners to support the country's growth.
In Shanghai, Marine has a downtown office in Pudong and a factory in an industrial zone in Nanhui. Our manufacturing facility in Nanhui, which takes up 6,000 square metres, employs a 200-strong workforce, including a growing team of service engineers.
Our China sites are situated so as to be close to our customers. Our service and marketing teams, for instance, are based in Dalian to serve the northern China market, and in Hong Kong to serve southern China and Taiwan.
Rolls-Royce's Chinese sites offer a diverse range of products, including deck machinery, tunnel thrusters, rudders, controllable pitch propellers, azimuth thrusters, water jets and stabilising systems. China is also a supply chain management and sourcing hub for Rolls-Royce's global Marine manufacturing business, and Shanghai is the North East Asian Marine headquarters.
