CSR Announces Acquisition of SMD

Zhuzhou China South Rail Times Electric Co. (CSR Times Electric), Ltd., a subsidiary of China South Rail (CSR),on 15 April announced the completion of a £130m formal acquisition of the UK-based manufacturer of ocean engineering products, Specialist Machine Developments (SMD) Limited, the top holding company of the SMD group.

Liu Hualong, the president of CSR commented: “SMD is a global leader in its sector that brings with it deep expertise and a strong reputation for quality products. We are excited about working alongside the company to grow its operations and further unlock opportunities in the global market.”

Following the acquisition, SMD will remain independent in its business operations and the day-to-day functions will still be controlled by its original management team. A new board of directors will be set up to take charge of business strategy, investment decision-making, financial monitoring and important decisions related to government and public relations.

SMD will serve as the global headquarters for CSR Times Electric’s deepwater equipment division.

In this subsidiary, SMD will be responsible for overall technology planning, market management and other daily operations.

Ding Rongjun, the president of CSR Times Electric, commented: “The acquisition of SMD is an important step in the company’s overall growth strategy to internationalize our operations. We are looking to expand beyond the Chinese railway transportation industry into new product lines with higher technical added value and SMD represented a fantastic opportunity to develop our presence in the ocean engineering equipment industry. By opening an SMD subsidiary in China, we want to establish the company as a leading supplier of remote operated vehicles (ROVs) equipment in the national market.”
