China Trade Mission
Waterloo-based Terepac Corporation is among a dozen enterprise companies from North America taking part in the Istuary China Mission, an event touring five major cities in China from May 15 to 26.
The mission aims to build connections with China's local governments, plus increase knowledge of local market dynamics and policies in China's growing technology sector.
"Terepac is extremely pleased to be part of this ground-breaking visit to China," stated Terepac CEO Ric Asselstine. "When we say our company is 'giving voice to the world', we mean that literally. We give voice and visibility to any and all objects. No bounds. No limits: physical, digital, geographic."
The Istuary China Mission will tour in the cities of Zhuhai, Shenzhen, Wuhan, Hangzhou and Chengdu. Participants will have access to trade shows, investment forums and industrial park orientations.
"Terepac provides unique IoT solutions that made them stand out against other IoT providers," said Michael Liu, VP of Istuary Idea Labs. "Based on their offering, we are pleased that Terepac is participating in the Istuary China Mission solely organized to help build connections between Canadian and US technology firms with China's local customers, tech community as well as institutional investors. This is definitely a good step in the right direction."
The mission continues Terepac's aggregate, integrate and scale strategy as it delivers trusted end-to-end IoT solutions at work, at home and at play to unvoiced or under-voiced assets. From fire hydrants to pumping stations, cars to conveyor belts, whether through elevated data immutability through its Data Reliance as a Service (DRaaS) offering, or trusted object-to-object transactions via the Terepac Blockchain, the company’s aim is to increase efficiencies, optimize processes and help sustain the planet.
