It’s not just automakers who see China as the land of EV opportunity. Parts suppliers and service providers in the electromobility field are also greedily eyeing the Middle Kingdom.
Midtronics, a global provider of battery testing and management products, established a Chinese division in Shenzhen in 2003, and has since built a customer base in transportation and stationary battery management. This week, the company announced the opening of a new, expanded China Headquarters facility.

The new Midtronics Shenzhen Technical Center has a larger footprint, including a laboratory with drive-in facilities. The company will also expand its China-based engineering and technology development teams, as well as service operations for system installation.
“The Shenzhen Technical Center will help Midtronics advance battery management with our customers in the Asia Pacific region,” said Midtronics CEO Steve McShane. “Our investment in key resources creates value for our customers and drives our growth in these markets. We make it a priority to collaborate with our global customers to provide strategic battery management solutions.”
