To coordinate its business throughout the Southeast Asia region, Omega Engineering Inc., Stamford, Conn., opened a new office in Singapore.

This follows the successful opening of the China office last year, say Omega Engineering officials, with additional investments to be made in other countries in the Asia Pacific region.

The company appointed Michael Lopez as the general manager of Southeast Asia. The Omega Southeast Asian business unit will have more than a dozen employees, including applications and technical support engineers, offering high-quality customer service in this region.

“Our move into Singapore helps us to better service our clients in Southeast Asia,” says Patricia Liu, Omega Engineering’s Asia Pacific vice president and managing director. “We have a significant installed base of business here where customers in multiple industries continue to expand their operations. Locating our newest office near our customers allows us to serve their needs more efficiently.”
