MicroCare expands Asian operation with Singapore base
MicroCare, a manufacturer of fibre optic cleaning products as well as precision cleaning, coating and lubrication products, has opened a distribution centre in Singapore. The facility will support customers throughout the south-east Asia region as well as the greater China marketplace. Managing the new division will be Jerald Chan, who was recently hired as regional sales manager.
The new facility will house sales staff, a fully stocked warehouse and a testing lab. It will support customer requirements for MicroCare products, including electronics cleaners, the Sticklers line of fibre optic cleaning tools, the Duraglide line of medical device lubricants, the Dupont Vertrel cleaning fluids and an array of MicroCare precision defluxers and degreasers. The office will begin operations on 19 May and will be fully operational by the end of the summer 2014.
'The new staff and facility are based on the requirements of our customers, said MicroCare international vice president Mike Jones. 'It will help us serve customers across the ASEAN marketplace from one large, efficient and centralized warehouse. We’ll have local sales people, local office staff, local inventory and local service and support.'
The new facility will be the third distribution facility for MicroCare, which has its main factory and warehouse in the USA, about two hours north-east of New York City, plus a distribution and sales depot in Belgium.
