Siemens AG is a global technology powerhouse that has stood for engineering excellence, innovation, quality, reliability and internationality for 170 years. The company is active around the globe, focusing on the areas of electrification, automation and digitalization. One of the world’s largest producers of energy-efficient and resource-saving technologies, Siemens is a leading supplier of efficient power generation and power transmission solutions and a pioneer in infrastructure solutions as well as automation, drive and software solutions for industry. The company is also a leading provider of medical imaging equipment – such as computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging systems – and a leader in laboratory diagnostics as well as clinical IT.

The history of Siemens in China dates back to 1872, when the company delivered the first pointer telegraph to China. The company manufactured the first steam generator and built the country’s first tram line by the end of the 19th century. In 1985, “Memorandum of Comprehensive Co-operation between Machinery, the Electric and Electronics Industries of the People’s Republic of China and Siemens AG” marked a comprehensive cooperation between Siemens and China. For more than 145 years, Siemens has pioneered cooperation with the country with its solutions, technologies and products, and has been known in the country for its quality and reliability, technological excellence and innovation.

Siemens has witnessed the tremendous changes that have taken place since China embarked on reform and opening-up. The company has also made great contributions to the reform drive of the country. In fiscal 2017 (October 1, 2016 – September 30, 2017), Siemens generated revenue of €7.2 billion in China. With over 32,000 employees, Siemens is one of the largest foreign-invested companies in the country.

Siemens has become an integral part of the Chinese economy and society. Offering a wide array of Environmental Portfolio and innovative solutions in cooperation with local partners, Siemens is committed to the sustainable development of China with a brand claim of “Ingenuity for life”. On the way to “Vision 2020”, the company makes real what matters to create sustainable values for customers, employees and the society.

As China pushes forward the Belt and Road Initiative, more and more Chinese companies are surfing the “go global” tide and playing an active role in the international arena as EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) contractors. With leading technologies, complete portfolio, global network, financial solutions and flexible service models, Siemens cooperates with Chinese EPCs in fields including power, oil and gas, chemicals, minerals and industries. By 2017, Siemens had worked with over 100 Chinese companies such as POWERCHINA, CEEC, CNPC, Sinopec Group, CNBM and CIMC Raffles to explore opportunities in over 100 countries across six continents.
