Taking this time to think strategically with our minds positioned for growth, we moved a large part of our manufacturing capability to our Inland facility. As planned, this freed up significant space within our Coastal plant, which is in the world-class engineering city of Shenzhen, for our exciting new Advanced Manufacturing Hub. Here, we will focus on materials, components, processes, and skills and we’re pleased to say that we’ve already seen positive signs with one of our OEM customers. We’ve gained significant market share thanks to our custom development team engineering a unique and tailored solution based on their individual market needs.
As I discuss our different facility locations, I am acutely aware that the term "Geopolitical risk" has risen in prominence these days and is gaining increased international attention. The "Geo" part is not a challenge for Ryder, as our plants are in a seismic quiet zone, they are 450km (300 miles) apart, and they access multiple seaports. We are also incredibly proud to be embedded in China's extensive and robust industrial supply base. The "political" dimension is being addressed by a dual effort, for electronics, Ryder runs a four-year-old partnership within Thailand, which satisfies the United States import controls, and a plastics solution is being prepared. During 2023 we will be able to comment on this further and share our solution with you.
We can't say for certain whether COVID-19 has made companies more environmentally aware, but regardless, we are pleased that ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) is getting more attention worldwide, and that companies are being assessed on these principles.
