As Patrons of Staffordshire Chamber of Commerce we were delighted to join an international trade visit to Germany to make new connections with international businesses. The chamber has a wealth of import/export knowledge to help with all aspects of the trading process and provides access to overseas chambers, Embassies, High Commissions and Consulates within the UK and across the world.

Jim Maiden, European Sales Manager

European sales manager Jim Maiden joined the business back in 2012 when the company was a UK start-up and trading as Yonghe Europe.

Jim has 28 years’ commercial experience, having started in stainless steel and non-ferrous products back in 1994.

After a period in financial services, he returned to metals in 2007 – specialising in the sale of tubular products and bespoke components to the automotive market. It is during this time that he developed a strong understanding of this sector.

Jim joined Yonghe Europe in November 2012, as the first employee of the Group outside China.

10 years on, Jim has played a key role in the growth and management of sales throughout the UK and Europe, while also supporting the development of global customer platforms for GINHO facilities in Germany and the USA.

As the business moves towards 2023, Jim’s focus is very much on further developing relationships with existing customers and also expanding into new areas.

Accessing valuable insight and updates on all the latest industry news are huge benefits to being members of the SMMT. Attending events like Meet the Buyer also provides fantastic opportunities for us to tell the Ginho story to a new audience and to learn about key issues within the sector.

Running alongside Advanced Engineering 2022, Meet the Buyer will be focusing heavily on innovation as OEMs strive to make components lighter, quieter, sustainable and more cost-effective. Ginho positions itself as the partner to help meet these goals.

With more than 150 engineers in materials, manufacturing and R&D, we have a wealth of expertise and experience, coupled with advanced simulation software to explore designs and solutions. With operations spanning Asia, North America, Europe and the UK, we offer customers a global partnership, with access to our manufacturing capabilities via strategically located international divisions.

Specifically, Ginho is a global specialist in manufacturing temperature-critical and pressure-related components and is always evolving materials and processes to produce components for vehicles using current and alternative fuels – including CNG, LNG, hydrogen, fuel cell, hybrid and other emerging technologies.

Ginho is supporting a reduction in emissions in line with the current Euro 6d and future Euro 7, China 6 and Bharat 6 legislation, across passenger, commercial and agricultural vehicles.
