The mechanical engineering sector is one of the key industries of Germany, characterized by small and medium sized companies (SMEs) with resource constraints, customized small-scale production, and a dependency on global markets. Research on SMEs manufacturing in culturally and geographically distant emerging economies is still scarce.
