Strategical steps towards a strong positioning in China

The establishment of Aircrete China closely follows the trend of the Chinese vigorous development of green prefabricated concrete buildings and promotes sustainable development. AAC products, particularly AAC panels, can minimize the adverse environmental impact of the construction process while at the same time meet the requirements of Chinese green prefabricated buildings, an ambition also high on the agenda of China’s State Council.

Aircrete China has become an official member of the China Aerated Concrete Association (CACA) and participated in the 39th Annual Meeting of CACA and the 2019 AAC International Forum in December 2019 with its own booth. In addition, Andre Antonow has become the Vice President of the Keqiao Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai, which is a remarkable achievement and an important recognition for Aircrete China.
