In order to ensure optimized processes to our customers and to provide the best possible sales support to customers, sales subsidiaries and distributors in the Asia-Pacific region, Pepperl+Fuchs will change its organizational structure in Singapore as of January 5, 2016.
Previous Pepperl+Fuchs (Manufacturing) Pte Ltd, now operates under the name Pepperl+Fuchs Asia Pte. Ltd. and is the headquarters for the Asian region. This company focuses on production and sales for Asia which carries out the assignments of marketing and sales support for our Asia-Pacific region. Centerpiece of Pepperl+Fuchs Asia in Singapore is the fully automated Global Distribution Center (GDC) with control tower functions, to support our global inventory. Products will be supplied and distributed to Pepperl+Fuchs companies around the globe from this facility.
Pepperl+Fuchs Pte Ltd remains unchanged and will focus exclusively on operational and supporting sales tasks for the local Singapore market and the Asian countries. This company will serve customers, agents and distributors with sales support the best possible way, even in countries without Pepperl+Fuchs affiliates.
This optimized structure will help us to strengthen our position in Asia as a key growing market and to be prepared for future growth.
