“We are excited to announce the establishment of this new Leasing Platform in the Tianjin FTZ as it will enable us to continue to develop our growing business in China,” said Philip Stransky, Waypoint VP of sales and relationship management for Asia Pacific. “Waypoint executed our first two leases in China this year, and our initiative to establish this platform reflects the importance we place on customers in this market.”
