NEW FACILITY IN SINGAPORE FOR ALEXANDER DENNIS
Alexander Dennis Ltd has opened a new facility in Singapore to support the organisation’s plans for further growth in Asia Pacific. The company is looking for to further expansion as Managing Director Paul Davies says. The new site includes a parts distribution and training centre for the wider South East Asian region in addition to offices for the local team working with customers and stakeholders in Singapore.
The new facility is set up to provide 'best-in-class aftermarket support' due to the organisation’s plans for further growth in Asia Pacific. As market leader in Hong Kong Alexander Dennis has used their presence in South East Asia as a springboard to expand into new markets, breaking into Singapore in 2014 and Malaysia in 2015. This new facility will serve as a hub to the South East Asian customer base. The new 25,000 square foot facility, in the north of Singapore close to the Woodlands border crossing to Malaysia, has a parts warehouse, inside bus workshop, as well as a state-of-the-art training room and offices. It is designed to support contract requirements defined by Singapore’s Land Transport Authority. Paul Davies, Managing Director for Alexander Dennis Asia Pacific, says: “Asia Pacific is a key area of strategic growth for Alexander Dennis. Building on our existing successes in Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and New Zealand, we look forward to further expansion of our activities. Our new facility in Singapore will support these ambitions by providing a first-class operating base for South East Asia.”
