As part of its “Blue Ocean” strategy to develop new markets, WA China has been placing resources behind the development of STELLOY wire sales in China. The China STELLOY market was identified as a large market opportunity, in particular regarding valve cladding applications!

Since the start of 2017, WA China’s sales team with support from WA France has been focused on developing end-user customers and distributors. So far the results have been fantastic with sales up well over 100% on the previous year and a prediction to double again in 2018.
