Techcomp (Holdings) Ltd (HK: 1298, SGX: T43), a leading PRC manufacturer and distributor of analytical and healthcare equipment, said it won a sales contract worth 1.4 million usd with the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) for 18 sets of amino acid analyzers to be installed over the following few months.

“The contract is a testimony of our strong business relations with state-level institutions and their confidence in Techcomp’s products,” said Techcomp President & CEO Mr. Richard Lo.

Growing safety concerns in China over foodstuffs add impetus to the market demand for Techcomp’s analytical instruments for testing food ingredients.

“The escalating market demand fueled by food safety standards and nutrition concerns has presented good opportunities for our business expansion.

“Techcomp is committed to being the brand of choice for analytical equipment, and we will devote continuous efforts to strengthening our R&D team and boost marketing activities to increase market share in the industry,” Mr. Lo added.

The CFDA is a ministerial-level agency in charge of food safety supervision and drug regulation in the country.

“Benefitting from the favorable business environment, we are confident of delivering an encouraging financial performance this year,” Techcomp’s CEO said.

The Hong Kong and Singapore-listed firm said orders for its products are expected to increase continuously with both the PRC government and consumers placing a greater emphasis on food safety standards and quality.

To cater to the expected surge in demand, Techcomp has allocated more resources to manufacture and distribute analytical equipment for testing food ingredients.
