Supplier BrandCharger (PPAI 514118), headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, has opened a new office in Shenzhen, China, and has relocated its product development department to the new location.

BrandCharger’s new office is in Shenzhen Valley Ventures, an incubator for tech hardware startups in partnership with Zowee, a manufacturer and designer of products for companies like Huawei, Lenovo, Xiaomi and Samsung. Participation in Shenzhen Valley Ventures gives BrandCharger access to manufacturing and design experts and state-of-the-art testing equipment, allowing the company to do much of its own product testing.

“The decision to move our product development department to Shenzhen Valley Ventures is a logical step in our overall business growth strategy,” says Ethan Ung, vice president of BrandCharger. “Shenzhen is the location for the headquarters of a number of home-grown multinational high-tech companies and is also to home to mainland China’s first SEZ (Special Economic Zone). Shenzhen’s close proximity to Hong Kong and continuing growth in high-tech industries, financial services, foreign trade and export sectors, will ensure it continues to be a critical labor market for the future. We are excited with this development and look forward to developing even better products for our clients.”
