DARMSTADT GERMANY: Merck KGaA, the world's leading pharmaceutical and chemical group, will soon open a liquid crystal (LC) laboratory in Shanghai this month to speed up the localization of its LC business in China.

The new laboratory will start with less than 20 staff providing supportive services to its clients in China, said Alasdair Nigel de Mouilpied Jelfs, managing director, Merck Chemicals,China.

"China is the principal market for the LC industry and one of the reasons that we are market leader in liquid crystals is that we've always been very close to the customers in providing the technical support that they need to effectively use our products," said Jelfs.

Jelfs said “China was clearly identified as one of the less than ten strategic countries worldwide and it's an important market for growth both in its pharmaceutical and chemical sector”.

Merck aims to help improve innovation in China's LC business with activities such as seminars every two years and forums, Jelfs said.

The company also plans to increase the workforce and management skills of their employees in its China offices in the future.

Merck initiated its business in China in 1900. It currently has main offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Hong Kong and extends its sales network in 18 cities, employing more than 800 people.
