Headquartered in Spain, Stratesys is a global provider of ICT services specialised in SAP technology. Since 2011 the company has been operating in the Chinese market and, in 2014, it established a Wholly Owned Foreign Enterprise (WOFE) in Shanghai. The decision to set up in China resulted from the company’s commitment to offer local support to its existing clients while they entered, or expanded operations in the PRC. Setting up in China was no easy task. HR, regulatory and operational difficulties posed obstacles and required the combination of the company’s global knowledge with local know-how to overcome them.
