Chinaplas’ organizer celebrates 40th birthday

The Adsale Group, organizer of Chinaplas, celebrated its 40th birthday during Chinaplas 2018. At Adsale’s 40th Anniversary “Honorable Partner” Awards Presentation Ceremony held on the show’s first day, The Adsale Group Chairman Stanley Chu said the company grew along with China’s economy.

“Over the past 40 years, Adsale has weathered the struggles of early industries and benefited from the current economic take-off. We have witnessed China's transformation from a ‘factory of the world’ to a powerhouse of innovations,” observed Chu. “In the early years, Chinaplas was organized to introduce overseas technologies and provide a procurement platform for local companies. Now, it is an international hub that facilitates exchanges between suppliers and buyers from all over the world, and provides a platform for the introduction of high-end technologies.”


“With many brilliant and glorious years of reform and opening-up laid as groundwork, Chinaplas' scale now, for the first time, exceeds 300,000sq.m. – providing an indicator of the industry’s massive demand for new technologies. It's a critical moment in China's economic restructuring and the shift to new growth drivers. We aspire to promote the transformation and upgrading of the industries and sustainable development through the introduction of innovative technologies,” continued Chu.
