"We at BMH have been using FinChi services for the last three years. We have found them most useful particularly in the back-office functions support which has allowed us to concentrate on what we had come to China to do; which was to get our products out there in the market as quickly and efficiently as possible. Setting up a business in a country like China that is surging ahead but has a very different culture and language can be challenging for Finnish SMEs. Having access to office infrastructure and professional people who understand both China's business culture, Finnish business culture and speak the common language of English, gives the security and confidence that is needed when entering a new market."

"When Beamex, in year 2009, decided to establish its own office in China there were several options to consider. The important criterias for us in setting up Beamex office were: First of all, what type of office. Then, reliability in getting required permissions and documentation arranged in a timely (=fast) manner was the second thing. Office location and a prestigious office with reception services, meeting rooms, internet and other communications, etc. were of course also giving weight.
When considering the whole package and actions required to get everything accomplished, one option was in its own category, FinChi. They were able to offer a complete package from start to having a fully operating office establishment, with professionalism, reliability and competitive pricing.
Now after three years of experience we can say that the staff of FinChi is just super, with regard to professionalism, attitude, reliability and responsiveness. On top of this the whole community atmosphere at FinChi is just great, it serves our needs and expectations to full extent. During the years new requirements have of course arise for Beamex and FinChi has been able to help out with actions and advices.
Finally, FinChi girls smiling approach is always "can do."
