On 20 March 2012, PWN Technologies officially opened its Singapore office, which marked another milestone in our commitment to bring sustainable water treatment solutions to the Asia-Pacific region. In addition, this office will provide R&D opportunities with universities and partners in the region. In 2013 the Singapore office of PWN Technologies will be transformed into the regional headquarters for the Asia Pacific region.
This decision means that the Singapore office will become more or less equally important to PWN Technologies as its home base: the Netherlands. The Asian and Pacific region is of great economic importance. A booming region where economy is growing, unlike the European region. It is also a region where the solutions of PWN Technologies can make a difference.
The Asian market is rapidly becoming more important. Collaboration with R&D centers like Singapore Membrane Technology Centre at Nanyang Technical University in membrane technology opens new opportunities to develop solutions for the regional market by conducting client driven innovation programmes in Singapore. To enhance this, PWN Technologies is planning to invest millions in R&D and innovation together with local authorities.
Mr. Chew Men Leong, Chief Executive PUB: “PWN Technologies’s choice of Singapore as the first Asia-Pacific office site outside of The Netherlands is a testimony to Singapore’s growing status as a Global HydroHub. We look forward to PWN Technologies’ contribution in boosting research and technological capabilities in the sector here.”
