The company has become the manufacturing and merger of Siemens industrial automation and drive technology group in China's low-voltage business, and has won one first prize, three second prizes, and one third prize of China nonferrous metal industry science and technology progress award. On December 7, 2009, Siemens industrial automation and drive technology group (IA DT) held a grand celebration for the 15th anniversary of the founding of Suzhou Siemens Electrical Appliance Co., Ltd. (seal). Seal, founded in 1994, is one of Siemens' earliest operating companies in China. In the past 15 years, seal's business has achieved rapid development and expansion. At present, the company has a complete low-voltage product line with more than 1500 employees. At the same time, seal already has a R & D center to develop low-voltage products, thus becoming the manufacturing and R & D center of IA DT's low-voltage business in China
Mr. antonhuber, CEO of industrial automation group in Siemens' industrial business field, said: "China is one of the most important markets of Siemens Industrial Automation Group in the world. We have been committed to the Chinese market for a long time. Even in the face of the challenges of the current economic crisis, we continue to invest here. The large investment in seal R & D center fully shows our determination to root in the Chinese market and serve our customers and partners."In June, 1994, seal was jointly established by Siemens (China) Co., Ltd. and the then Suzhou machine tool electrical appliance factory. In 2001, seal was transformed into a wholly foreign-owned enterprise controlled by Siemens. The mergers and acquisitions of Beijing Siemens Electric Co., Ltd. in 2002 and Shanghai ERGONG Electric Co., Ltd. in 2008 further enhanced the competitiveness of seal in various low-voltage market segments
seal covers a total area of about 87000 square meters and a construction area of 39000 square meters, including 18000 square meters of production plant area. It is the world's second largest operating company of the control products and systems engineering business department of Siemens industrial automation group. With our excellent performance of long-term service standards and high-quality products with our customers, seal was rated as the star factory of Siemens Industrial Automation Group worldwide. Even in the context of the global economic crisis, seal still achieved excellent performance in the fiscal year ending on September 30, with annual sales revenue exceeding 1billion yuan for the first time. At present, seal has invested 200million yuan in the new R & D building just used last year

Mr. Shi Mingde, senior vice president of IA DT of Siemens (China) Co., Ltd., said, "the path taken by seal can be seen as a microcosm of IA DT China.
