The company set up a 1,000-sq-m (1,196-sq-yd) bonded warehouse in the Zhuhai Free Trade Zone in 2017. The facility is now its storage and distribution center in the Asian-Pacific region, and offers value-added services such as storage, delivery, and packaging.

The main reason for the company to move its Asian-Pacific business center to the Zhuhai Free Trade Zone is proximity to Hong Kong and Macao and preferential bonded policies, according to a Renata SA executive.
