Ecublens, Switzerland: – Leading provider of powder handling and containment systems, the Swiss Dec Group, will mark key changes to its local management structure when it returns to the huge CPhI China expo in Shanghai, June 20 – 22, 2017.

Dec will use the expo to exhibit its innovative and high containment blending, dosing, sampling, filling and emptying solutions based on its patented Powder Transfer System (PTS) technology as well as HPAPI containment technology.


Once again appearing as Dec China, the group will exhibit at booth NIE30 at the Shanghai New International Expo Center. The booth number is especially appropriate for Dec, which is currently celebrating its 30th Anniversary of its founding as a high technology powder transfer specialist.

The Dec China presence stand will be led by outgoing regional manager of Dec China Martin Larruscain, who is returning to Switzerland to take up a new role at the Ecublens headquarters. Mr. Larruscain is being succeeded from July 1 by Nicolas Godde, who will also be present on the stand.

“It has been a great privilege to oversee the setting up of our Chinese subsidiary from 2014 to provide sales structure and customer support to our rapidly growing Chinese markets,” said Martin Larruscain. “As Chinese manufacturing grows more sophisticated, there is an increasing need for high containment and integrated powder handling technologies that are Dec’s hallmark. I am delighted that Nicolas Godde has been accepted to take over the leadership. I have known him for some years now, he is the right person to further strengthen and develop the Chinese market.” Larruscain added.

Innovative technologies

Mr. Godde said he was looking forward to building Dec’s business in China and to continue his professional career, which includes a decade in sales management and business development in Asia and the general management of a Swiss based company producing powder dosing systems for the pharmaceutical industry.

“I have been seeing very positive indications of growing demand for the types of innovative technologies Dec can bring to the market,” said Mr. Godde.
