Global AC drives manufacturer Vacon has established a regional center in Singapore. The new center started operations in August 2012. Vacon's regional center in Singapore ensures that Vacon's entire product portfolio and service network offering are available to customers in the region. The center is also in charge of effective sharing of best practices, know-how and the professional personnel that the company already has in the Middle East, India, South East Asia and Pacific region. This will open up new opportunities for Vacon to gain market share and increase volumes in this region with its huge population and great market potential.
"As a major world trade node with a business-friendly economy, Singapore was a logical location for Vacon to establish a regional center. We are at the heart of the region which is one of Vacon's major growth areas," says Olli Tevä, Vacon's vice president for Middle East, India, SEA, Pacific. "Singapore has also a rich supply of skilled and experienced workers, which will help us to continuously improve our customer service in the region. As many of Vacon's global customers have their regional offices in Singapore, it will help us in building seamless cooperation with them. This also reflects Vacon's values: keeping customers and partners at the heart of Vacon's operations," concludes Tevä.
