It’s COLD in China in February! Nu Agencies Visit Manufacturers

Nu Agencies and their parent company Nuco International have traded with Asian manufacturers for well over 10 years and we regularly visit our suppliers to meet with their management teams and see new machinery. We were invited to Jiangsu province in February to see the launch of a new coating line at one of our key suppliers of PET G core and overlay. Unfortunately we came unprepared for the very chilly conditions and Keith Matthews the M.D. of Nuco International had to borrow a rather fetching coat. In the picture Keith proudly shows of his recently acquired garment while standing next to Robbie Liu who runs our Shanghai office and oversees all our Quality Control procedures.
