The celebration was one for the books. The greatly anticipated Shape Guangzhou grand opening ceremony took place on Tuesday, February 21. This was an incredible milestone for Shape and the event was a huge success. Around 70 people attended the event from Shape US, Shape China, our customers DFL, NCIC and Toyota, and local government in Tanbu town, as well as all associates from the Shape Guangzhou plant.
Before the ceremony, Mark White, president, shared our vision to build a unique and special company which improves and enhances the lives of our associates, our customers and the communities in which we live and work. Patrick Sullivan, general manager, shared Shape’s commitment to delivering the same level of performance from Shape Guangzhou as our customers have come to know and expect with Shape’s brand promise. The speeches kept flowing with sentiments shared by Sumi Li, deputy general manager from DFL and the Major of Tanbu Town.
A traditional performance of drum and lion dancing opened the ribbon cutting. Mark White shared the honor with Patrick Sullivan, Nakayama-san, Purchasing SAO from RNPO, Haigan Wei, Deputy Purchasing General Manager from GTMC, Weiyu Zhou, Town Major and Wensheng Wang, Deputy Town Major from Tanbu Town. After the ceremony, attendees were invited to partake in a plant tour and luncheon to learn a little more about Shape.
