Joint venture with China for RVS

Joint venture with China for RVS

From the article by Carlotta Rocci, who appeared in Repubblica on July 29, 2014.

LARVS, a historic company in the hydraulic sector of Collegno, faces China, or perhaps it would be better to say that China overlooks Collegno. A delegation of technicians from two companies - the Zhuzhou Southern Valves, a company that produces valves, and Wuhan Boda Tech Power Technology Development, in the hydraulic sector came to visit the plant in via Macedonia: the goal is a joint venture between the various entrepreneurial realities with relapses also on Collegno.

"The project plans to export solutions based on the technologies developed by Rvs in China, which has been working in the field of hydraulics for thirty years", explains Philippe Lefort, head of Fast Direct Link, a Turin-based company that brings together all over the world to create new industrial opportunities. «Vice versa Rvs constitutes for the Chinese the possibility of exporting products to Europe that are no longer manufactured here», Lefort continues.

Dialogue is all based on skills and know-how. "We have no intention of taking work abroad - explains the CEO of the RVs, Fabrizio Pezzolo - The technologies that we can export to China will be produced in Collegno", indeed, "In the hypothesis of agreement there is the possibility that the Chinese group invests on Collegno ", adds Lefort. The Rvs, therefore, constitutes for the Chinese the opportunity to set foot in Europe and in turn could bring the brand of Collegno in the East. In particular, between the Zhouzhou Southern Valves and the Rvs there is now a letter of intent to be ratified in September in a last meeting scheduled in China.
