Chinese firm bringing distribution hub, 30 jobs, to Charlotte

A Chinese company that makes ribbons used in fax and barcode printing announced today that it is bringing its ribbon distribution hub to Charlotte and hiring 30 workers over the next three years. Fujisan Thermal Ribbon USA (FJS) already has a fulfillment center in Charlotte for product storage and processing orders, but will add a distribution, sales and customer service center at its site at 299 Dupree St. in Charlotte.

“We believe that our U.S. operation will help us gain market share and increase profitability as well as support the North American and global business expansion in years to come,” said Paul Wills, vice president of U.S. sales & operations with FJS Thermal Ribbon USA Ltd. “Charlotte not only provides an excellent quality of life but also a logistical delivery advantage to more than 60 percent of our customer base.”

Headquartered in Dalian, China, FJS is a top leading thermal ribbon manufacturer in China and the only approved supplier for Panasonic and Philips in the Chinese market.
