Situated in the city of Shijiazhuang in Hebei Province, some two hours by train from Beijing, Tinsue is the largest manufacturers of sports flooring in China.
In addition to table tennis they provide installation and an after sales service for badminton, basketball, tennis and volleyball, as well as for general purpose use in sports halls, gymnasium, offies and centres of entertainment.
“We are very happy that Tinsue is able to co-operate for the third time at the Olympics, from London to Rio to Tokyo,” said Zhang Zhen, the Chief Executive Officer of Tinsue. “Tinsue will do its best to ensure the highest quality product and service for the table tennis venue at the Olympic Games; we want to thank the ITTF for their support and approval of Tinsue’s brand.”
Founded in 2003, extensive research has resulted in a high quality product being produced, one which has met with the approval of all concerned, none more so than Steve Dainton, the ITTF Marketing Director.
“Tinsue has now been a long term partner of the ITTF”, he said. “It’s a pleasure to continue to work with them for another four years; firstly on our prestigious end of year showcase event, the World Tour Grand Finals and the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.”
The deal was brokered by TMS International, the current marketing partner of the International Table Tennis Federation.
