Contact Solidiance in China
What is the history of Solidiance’s China office?
Solidiance office in China is based in Shanghai and opened in 2006. It was actually one of Solidiance’s first two offices. The China practice served as a platform from which much of the Asia Pacific Industrial practice line with a distinct focus on the Construction / Green Buildings Sector was launched. Today, Solidiance China has served many of the world's top names in industrial, medical technology and construction industries. Solidiance China has repeatedly helped large multinationals to conduct M&A activities in Greater China and to conduct China-wide competitive benchmarking to better understand domestic threats.
How is Solidiance different than other consulting firms in China?
China typically plays a significant part in our client's Asia wide market strategy, but no other firm has employees who possess the true Asia-Pacific perspective that Solidiance has. While research and recommendations for a single market can be developed - they are often done in isolation without a bigger picture perspective of the region which is critical to making any China strategy effective. We know China and the rest of Asia. We are not global, we are Asia-focused, and our clients much prefer that. Solidiance values long term client relationships and this is reflected in our extensive client repeat rate of business and in our name "Solid Alliance".
