In 2007 SORG opened a small design office in China. Therefore, the aptly named SORG Engineering and Design Office Anyang (normally shortened to SORG Anyang) celebrated its 10th anniversary in May this year.
What began as a small office with just 6 staff has become an important part of the worldwide SORG Group and now employs 14 specialists. A further expansion of the capacity is currently planned.
The development of the Chinese operation is mirrored in the changes in the work carried out there over the past 10 years. Initially the office carried out preparation work for the main drawing office in Lohr, Germany. They now work independently to produce complete designs and engineering for steelwork and plant components using AutoCAD Mechanical 2D and Inventor 3D to make the drawings.
The official function to celebrate the office’s 10th anniversary took place in the Huan Shui Bay Hotel in Anyang on 23rd May 2017.
Guests of honour at the celebration were members of the Anyang council and the local Hightech district who joined the staff of the SORG Anyang office and representatives from SORG Germany. After greeting the assembled guests in Chinese SORG Managing Director Alexander Sorg went on to thank the town and district representatives for their assistance during the establishment of the company 10 years previously and especially for their continued support up to the present time.
To mark the occasion Alexander Sorg presented a Certificate and a specially produced glass sculpture to Harald Zenker, Managing Director of SORG Anyang, and Achim Kreser, Engineering Manager in Anyang.

Alexander Sorg went on to emphasise the most important contribution of the employees to the company’s success and thanked them for their commitment. Two members of the Anyang team, Gu Fan and Li Rui, have been with the company since the beginning, and the opportunity was also taken to celebrate their personal 10th anniversaries. Alexander Sorg and Harald Zenker offered their best wishes and presented the two with commemorative presents.
