The Global Workspace Alliance (GWA), the consortium of leading IT providers offering global workspace services to international companies, announced today it has signed an agreement with Chinese service provider Topnew Info as the Alliance’s strategic partner for China and Hong Kong, significantly enhancing the GWA’s capabilities in APAC and expanding its direct presence in the region.
Headquartered in Beijing, Topnew Info is a high-tech information technology company authorized by the Management Committee of Science & Technology and listed on China’s NEEQ (National Equities Exchange and Quotations). With over 1,500 employees, 360 field engineers and 10+ branch offices across mainland China and Hong Kong, the company supports more than 1,000 customers, including Apple, Baidu, Huawei, LG, and SK, among others. Topnew Info is the IT subsidiary company of Topnew Group, a China-based national company with activities in construction and manufacturing sectors.
“We have a growing number of clients who include China as a strategic region, driving the need for expanded support services of the GWA. We are excited to expand our efforts in China with such a well-respected organization," said Greg Hoogerland senior Vice President of Strategy, CompuCom, and GWA Executive Board member. "This partnership adds strength to our global capabilities and will help bring consistent services in support our growing user community.”
This partnership also strengthens the GWA’s data center capabilities, with 4 data centers (ISO9001 and ISO27001) across Beijing and Tianjin providing hosting, cloud computing and internet access services for global clients for 11 years.
GWA’s Executive Director and Getronics COO, Thomas Fetten, said: “On behalf of the Board, we are pleased to announce this very exciting formal addition to the Alliance. Topnew Info has been a partner for CompuCom in China for many years, and has proven to be an excellent organization, with special focus on service quality and extensive regional coverage.”
Fetten added: “Over the years, we’ve learned that it is important to support our clients in solving the seemingly conflicting paradigm of contracting globally consistent services while striving to benefit from the local insight, flexibility and socio-political understanding that are required by local business units. Having that local knowledge and ‘feet on the street’ strengthens our global position and allows us to be flexible to our customers’ requirements, providing that local intimacy remains such a vital part in this business.”
As a result of the agreement and the signing of the GWA’s Participation Charter, Topnew Info will become the preferred partner for mainland China and Hong Kong and the 11th strategic member overall.
“We are very excited about this partnership. We strongly believe this is a win-win for both sides, including our shareholders who have shown great enthusiasm to this alliance. Working with global companies will accelerate Topnew Info’s international growth and I will ensure my team is committed to the continuous growth of our joint business.” said Mr. Peter Gao, CEO of Topnew Info.
Fellow GWA associate members include: Getronics and CompuCom, leading members with presence in Europe, APAC, and North America; SPIE Communications (France, Switzerland), Tecnocom (Iberia and Latam), AGCN (Middle East), Centric (the Netherlands), Eire Systems (Japan), Infocare (Nordics), NSC (Italy) and S&T (Eastern Europe).

Koza Altin Welcomes Court’s Rejection of Akin Ipek’s Share Purchase Agreement13.7.2018 15:58 | Pressemelding
A Turkish Court has found against businessman Akin Ipek this week – ruling that a share purchase agreement, which he had submitted as vital evidence in support of his case against the Turkish state, is null and void. The matter was brought to the Ankara Commercial Court in March 2017 by Koza Holding (parent company of Koza Altin) which, according to Mr Ipek’s share purchase agreement, purportedly transferred all of its shares to Ipek Investment Limited. Koza Holding filed the lawsuit for legal recognition that the share purchase agreement is void. The ruling in Turkey follows on from an earlier judgment set down by the English High Court, which rejected Mr Ipek’s attempt to use up to £3m of UK subsidiary Koza Ltd’s money to fund a claim against the Turkish State at the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID). In the English ruling, Deputy Judge Richard Spearman QC declared the “authenticity” of the share purchase agreement as “open to very serious doubt”. The
