Omega Engineering To Open Singapore Office
Omega Engineering is opening a new office in Singapore to coordinate its business throughout the Southeast Asia region.
The move is part of a multi-phase plan to expand its global presence and footprint across Asia, the company said.
Omega Engineering products include thermocouple probes and assemblies, pressure gauges and switches, and air velocity measurement systems. The Stamford, Conn.-based company also offers a line of data acquisition, automation, electric heating and custom engineered products for use in manufacturing, test and research environments.
The decision to open the Singapore office follows the opening of a China office last year, and the company said additional investments will be made in other countries in the Asia Pacific region.
The company appointed Michael Lopez as general manager of Southeast Asia. The Omega Southeast Asian business unit will have more than a dozen employees, including applications and technical support engineers.
“Our move into Singapore helps us to better service our clients in Southeast Asia,” said Patricia Liu, Omega Engineering’s Asia Pacific vice president and managing director. “We have a significant installed base of business here where customers in multiple industries continue to expand their operations. Locating our newest office near our customers allows us to serve their needs more efficiently. It also presents us with an opportunity to grow our activities and expand our impact while more effectively reaching new customers in this emerging economic region.”
