Manufacturing firm Pentair has opened its new Southeast Asia regional headquarters in Singapore.
SINGAPORE: Manufacturing firm Pentair has opened its new Southeast Asia regional headquarters in Singapore.
The new office will consolidate its operations from seven locations across Singapore to a single 16,000-square-feet space.
More than 100 employees will move into the office in Tuas, which already houses some 100 employees, most of whom are engaged in engineering support.
In a statement released on Thursday, Pentair said the new office will support more than 500 employees in countries across Southeast Asia, and factories in Malaysia and Indonesia.
"Singapore is the logical location for any industrial organisation with serious ambitions in Southeast Asia and beyond. It offers convenient access to neighbouring countries and excellent business links with regional economic powerhouses such as China," said Lawrence Thong, Pentair's vice president and managing director for Southeast Asia.
Some of the global business units at Pentair's regional headquarters in Singapore include water and environmental services, valves and controls, and thermal management
With pro forma global revenues of more than US$8 billion, Pentair was formed last year through the merger of Pentair Inc and the Flow Control business of NYSE-listed Tyco International Ltd.
