Last year following the announcement by Hewlett-Packard Co. which unveiled sweeping changes to its business in China, including the sale of a majority stake in its data-networking operation. HP later announced that Tsinghua Holdings, which was affiliated with the prestigious State Run Tsinghua University in China, would buy 51% of a newly created entity housing the U.S. company’s H3C Technologies Co. networking operation together with its China-based server, data storage and technology-services businesses.
As a result of the announced sale by Hewlett-Packard Co to Tsinghua, Tsinghua Holdings indicated that it will now move away from the existing Hewlett-Packard Co. partner supported Authorised Parts Reseller (APR) model operating within China. Due to this, the EMPR Group is announcing its exit from the Chinese market due to the changed business circumstances and conditions.

Following a number of incidents involving Lithium Batteries that resulted in outburst of fires & explosions on passenger and cargo planes, the Aviation authorities has recently enforced an immediate ban on all Lithium batteries on planes.
“Federal Aviation Administration tests show a single damaged or defective battery can experience uncontrolled temperature increases that can spread throughout a shipment. It’s not unusual for tens of thousands batteries to be shipped in a single cargo container.
In FAA tests, the overheating batteries have released explosive gases that, when ignited, have blown the doors off cargo containers and sent boxes of batteries hurtling through the air before becoming engulfed in flames.” (Source: Boston Globe)
EMPR are experiencing extended shipment delays of Lithium batteries as a result of the recent ban enforced by the aviation authorities.
EMPR currently have limited stock of lithium batteries in our Australian & New Zealand warehouses. We apologise for this stock shortage and will provide customers with an update once we have further information on ETA.
