Ballard builds out China operations center for expanding fuel cell business

Ballard Power Systems has opened its first corporate office headquartered in Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong Province, China. This office will serve as the company’s initial operations center in China, supporting management, sales and business development, technical, after-sales and administrative support personnel. Thecompany also recently completed the registration of a wholly foreign-owned enterprise (WFOE) with the name of 广州市巴拉德动力系统有限公司 (Guangzhou Ballard Power Systems Co., Ltd.).

Our rapid and successful establishment of commercial relationships in China over the past year necessitates an in-country operations team. Last year we built out our sales and service teams and we expect to expand our China team to almost 20 people by year-end 2017 to support planned customer growth. This staff will fulfill a number of key roles, including business development, account management, applications engineering, after-sales support, quality assurance and supply chain management.

—Randy MacEwen, Ballard President and CEO

Ballard also announced the promotion of Alfred Wong to Managing Director, Asia Pacific. Wong has relocated to China, working out of the Guangzhou office, to support Ballard activities.



A very good move by Ballard for the Chinese and Asian markets.

The same should be done for UE countries and the Americas?

FCs will develop at a much faster rate in the next 10+ years.

Electrified vehicles need FCs for all weather operation, better range and much quicker refills.

Many more H2 stations (fed with excess REs) have to be installed. Oil, NG, Coal and Electricity industries and FCEVs producers have to get involved for the next 100,000 H2 stations.


They have to, it is the only move. Ballard blazed the trial improving on GEs initial design, leaped way ahead only to find no funding.
