The Arburg subsidiary in Singapore was founded on 11 May 1988, initially as a technical support centre, before being transformed into an independent sales and service centre for the entire ASEAN region in 1992.

“The creation of a regional sales organisation gave our business there a definite boost in terms of customer confidence,” said David Chan, MD of the subsidiary. “Subsequently, the regional offices in Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia were further developed with regard to infrastructure and personnel.”

While, in the beginning, customers were mainly drawn from the electrical and electronics sectors, the focus is now on companies that produce precision medical technology parts. “The medical technology segment in particular has grown continuously in recent years,” added Chan. “Singapore is a niche market for medical technology and other high-end products. This is why, here, we mainly require small and precise servo-electric machines that operate both reliably and energy-efficiently.”
