TenCate Advanced Armour has opened its sales office in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region. Mr Jacob Abelsen who has previously been the regional agent of TenCate Advanced Armour has been appointed director of this new entity in Singapore.
TenCate Advanced Armour APAC will start out as a sales office, but the plan is that it will be the regional hub for a number of local production establishments in countries along the APAC region. An important part of the worldwide growth strategy is that TenCate will offer local content to country specific programs. Current production for the region will primarily come out of Europe but can also be serviced from TenCate Advanced Armour in India.
Steen Tanderup, Managing Director TenCate Advanced Armour EMEA & APAC comments: ‘I am pleased to announce this next step in the development of TenCate Advanced Armour. This makes TenCate the only truly global armour company. We foresee strong growth in the APAC region. Above all we want to be able to give strong local support to our global customer base.’
In the first quarter of 2012 a sales manager and a technical sales manager will join the existing team in Singapore. A group of experienced TenCate Advanced Armour EMEA employees have also been allocated to support the APAC region.
