The company, which has its UK headquarters at the Allia Future Business Centre, ABAX Stadium, in Peterborough, is hoping the move will allow it to break into the Chinese market.

ABAX UK chief executive Chris Miller said: “This move outside of Europe really shows the ambition of ABAX and our confidence that we have the right products and technology to help an increasing number of markets, like we are seeing in the UK.”
