We’re on the ‘up’!
The Ningbo based team moved into their sparkling new offices on the 18th floor in the prestigious Hebang building in Ningbo’s CBD last week and the Shanghai team are on the lookout for a suitable new office ‘home’ in the heart of bustling Shanghai within the next two months.
“It’s a long way from the small office space at the Ningbo Technical Park we first had in 2011,” Jessica Miao, General Manager UMS said. “It’s an exciting example of how much the company has grown from our humble beginnings.”
UMS has experienced rapid expansion in response to burgeoning interest from international businesses wanting to capitalize on the fast-growing China consumer market.
Established in Auckland, New Zealand in 2011, UMS has grown from a boutique venture owned and operated by Jessica Miao, Richard Zhu and Sean Xie, to a firm with three offices in Auckland, Ningbo and Shanghai. It currently works alongside prominent New Zealand brands in China (such as Tourism New Zealand and Villa Maria), and a growing number of Australian and US businesses.
The office fit-out took approximately one a half months and was carefully managed by creative UMS staffers – Charlene – our key creative manager; and Jason – our company’s digital art designer.
The Shanghai office is also relocating from the Zhangjiang High Tech Park into the heart of the Shanghai CBD in the coming months, just as soon as it finds a suitable location.
UMS has recently taken onboard a number of new staff members in order to expand its service provision to its growing international client base.
General Manager, UMS, Jessica Miao says – “Our new offices in Ningbo, and the upcoming new office space in Shanghai is an exciting development in UMS’ history. UMS is growing rapidly and it is great to be able to provide an inspirational working environment for our professional staff and of course, a welcoming space for our international clients.”
