Chongqing Polycomp International (CPIC) has moved its North American headquarters from Los Angeles, California, to Amsterdam, Albany, New York, where it owns a fibreglass manufacturing facility.
Anticipating significant growth in the North American fibreglass market, CPIC has also expanded its North American team.
"By moving our North American customer support and administrative resources from the West Coast to the East Coast, we're now better able to respond to our customers in real time," explains Zbigniew 'Ziggy' Ziobro, CPIC General Manager-North America.
He adds that the change puts the customer service team and management in the same time zone as the majority of the company's North American customer base, which is concentrated in the Midwest and on the East Coast.
CPIC has operated in North America since December 2012. Late in 2015, the company purchased all assets of Amsterdam, New York-based Fiber Glass Industries (FGI), a privately held, speciality fibreglass manufacturer.
