BEIJING, Nov. 10 (Xinhua) -- ZEISS, a German technology enterprise in the fields of optical and optoelectronics, opened a service center in Beijing on Tuesday.

Built with an investment of more than 20 million yuan (3.13 million U.S. dollars), the ZEISS Consumer Products (COP) Service Center in Beijing is expected to save at least one month for users as the camera lenses were used to be sent to Germany for maintenance, according to Luo An, head of consumer products bureau, Greater China, Carl Zeiss (Shanghai) Co., Ltd.

"Beijing is the most important film production center in China," said Luo, adding that ZEISS' sales related to films in Greater China increased by more than 50 percent in the fiscal year 2021.

The center is the company's fourth in the world after Germany, the United States and Japan.

Maximilian Foerst, president of ZEISS Greater China, said the company now has five production bases, six sales and service offices, and one R&D center across China, adding that the company plans to further expand its presence in the country.
