Beijing Modern Business Daily reported last week that Shimano expects the factory, located in a free trade zone, will be "put into operation in November."

"The company kept a low profile when it initially entered the Chinese market (in 1992). By contrast, the company is making advertisements everywhere in subway stations of Beijing for now," said the Chinese newspaper.

The 80 000 sq m factory will trade as Shimano (Tianjin) Bicycle Components Ltd.
