“ It not only caused a dramatic decrease in our international orders , but also stopped us from sending our engineers abroad for installation and repair works . To respond to this crisis , we took a series of steps ,” explained Ale Lee .
“ Firstly , we started putting more emphasis on developing our local market . We tried to find and develop more potential users in our own country . The advantage of this approach is that there are no installation issues . Secondly , for the installation of new machines , we prepare detailed instruction manuals to help users to install presses as and provided online assistance through various IM apps . During this difficult period , we also took the opportunity to offer more training to our engineers . Even though business slowed , it was important that our engineers kept improving themselves . This not only improves the quality of our presses , but also provides a better technical service to our users in the future ,” he told ISMR .
