New Paris, Indiana - In order to satisfy continued product and service demands throughout China, KMC Controls announces today a significant expansion of its existing business. KMC Development Company Ltd, has brought on new management personnel, relocated its headquarters, and is now expanding three branch offices.

KMC Development has recently opened its headquarters in Tianjin. This location was chosen due to large growth potential. Tianjin is, in fact, a municipality directly administrated under the Central Government. As previously announced, Mr. Charlie Shum is Chairman of KMC Development.

Branch offices are now being expanded in Beijing, Shanghai, and Shenzhen. The importance of Beijing is obvious due to, among other factors, the upcoming Olympic Games in 2008. The latter two cities were chosen because they, like Tianjin, have good growth potential and designations as Special Economic Zones.

Recently, Chinese premier, Wen Jiabao, made an important related announcement. In his speech, he noted that the Binhai New Area for development in Tianjin is critical to China’s envisioned economic growth. It was noted as one of many important geographic areas currently experiencing rapid development including Zhujiang Delta, Guangdong, Shenzhen, Changjiang Delta, and the Shanghai Pudong areas. The expansion plan of KMC Development Company Ltd is both indicative of, and a market-sensitive response to, this growth.

To help manage this growth Mr. Shum is augmenting his controls-related management staff. He has hired a new General Manager, Jerome Zhu, who will also work from the Tianjin headquarters. Mr. Zhu earned his undergraduate, graduate, and doctorate-level degrees from Southwest Jiaotong University. For over 18 years he has worked for various development and controls companies in both technical and management capacities.

Also joining the KMC Development staff is Wun Fook Ming as Technical Director. Training and technical support functions will represent the majority of his efforts at the various branch offices. Mr. Ming has worked with KMC and other digital products for more than 20 years.
