Techcross Singapore Office Moved to Larger Office
The Techcross Singapore Office moved to a larger office on the 1 of April. In order to establish a regional base to respond to increasing orders, Techcross dispatched two employees from headquarters in May 2018 to the export incubator office operated by KOTRA (Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency) and the Korea SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises) and Startups Agency, and it is now making its second leap even before two years have passed since opening the branch in Singapore.
With the mandatory installation of BWMS for the BWM Convention, Techcross Singapore Office has moved its offices to the nearby Jurong East area to reinforce manpower and services to respond to the explosive growth in service requests and meetings with customers since last year. The new office is over 230m2 in size and capable of accommodating up to 15 people, and is also equipped with a warehouse able to store more than 50 sets of materials including rectifier parts and reagents that are frequently requested for urgent dispatch, bringing added speed to the supply and provision of materials. The new office will house ten employees, including five engineers, and plans to seek further stabilization through recruiting of more local employees.
Techcross has also established a local partnership system based on material warehouses and three engineers at local service partner Dintec Singapore and a stable chemical supply from Eureka Control System Pte Ltd, with an ultimate goal of growing into a hub for Southeast Asia service centers, including Singapore, nearby Malaysia, Indonesia, and Vietnam.
An expansion in such a short period of time is a rarity, not just in this industry but in others as well. However, thanks to the New Southern Policy, declared by the Korean government in November 2017, Techcross has shown steady growth since 2018 through an MOU through customer company Anglo Eastern Ship Management during the Korea-Singapore business partnership supported by KOTRA, in addition to turnkey orders for 9 LNGC (approximately 13 million dollars) for the shipowner of Eagle Star project. Through this company expansion, the Techcross Singapore Office intends to take its localization one step further to become a true leader in Southeast Asia.
