The ebm‑papst Group will invest $US1.07 million in the expansion of its regional headquarters in Singapore.
The expansion is required because Singapore will assume greater importance now that it will manage the entire Asia Pacific and Middle East region.
This investment is in addition to the expansion of IT and production capacities in India.
The plans are part of the fan manufacturer’s "Decoupling China Strategy".
As part of the strategy ebm‑papst will strengthen its presence in Asia and increase the resilience of its supply chains.
In China, ebm‑papst and its nearly 2,000 employees are focusing even more strongly on the Chinese market and its local customers.
This was followed by the opening of its new IT office in India where ebm-papst will employ an additional 200 staff in the next two years.
“The strengthening of the Singapore and India sites is a significant milestone for us. Singapore is a pioneer in the areas of digitalization and sustainability, as well as the hub of the Asia region—a perfect combination for us.”
ebm‑papst has been represented in Singapore and India since 1996. In Singapore, the company currently employs around 38 people with another 340 staff in India.
Another 31 employees work in the Southeast Asia region, including Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines, and Indonesia.
