In 1996, OTL set up a joint-venture with the Fritz Shaeffer Group of Germany, and established Zhenjiang OTL Storage Equipment Co. Ltd. to produce storage products (racking & shelving) for industrial use. With the technical assistance from Shaeffer, the company gradually established its reputation and market leadership in China.
In 2000, OTL increased its interest in the company to 100%, and undertook the following changes:
significantly expanded its Research & Development (R&D) department
significantly expanded its manufacturing scale
re-branded itself under a new name – OTL Systems, and emphasized on providing Total Storage Solutions to customers

As a result OTL Systems has obtained more than 5 national patents in respect of its various products and technologies. It has also attained ISO9001 certification from TUV.

OTL Systems is now one of the market leaders in storage business, particularly in Asia. It has involved in numerous major projects all over the world, including many internationally renowned ones in mainland China and Hong Kong. Our international business department handles projects in Europe, Middle East, South East Asia, Australasia, North and South Americas.

In order to enlarge our manufacturing capacity, OTL Systems opened its second and third factories in Nanjing and Zhenjiang (both in Jiangsu Province), China in 2013.
