VITRONIC opens a new subsidiary in Malaysia
VITRONIC officially opened its new subsidiary in Penang, Malaysia on March 28, 2019. The Malaysian branch will become the new full-service provider for VITRONIC customers in South-East Asia.
“With over 35% of the global GDP, Asia Pacific is by far the largest economic block. With a subsidiary in Malaysia, we are now in the perfect position to focus on APAC,” says Martin Weiss, director of the subsidiary, in a press release. Companies such as Malaysian Post, DHL, FedEx and Thai Post will implement systems for logistics automation, industrial automation and traffic technology. In addition to branches in Shanghai, China, and Melbourne, Australia, Penang is now the third VITRONIC site in the Asia Pacific region. Penang will provide both hardware and software engineering as well as training and testing. Furthermore, the subsidiary will offer services such as installation, commissioning and service for 11 countries in the region. The presence of the new VITRONIC subsidiary will also help to create numerous jobs in Penang, the company says without specifying any numbers. “To me, e-commerce is the most recent economic miracle of our time,” adds Martin Weiss. “The APAC region is particularly welcoming to online business, making it the perfect environment for our many years of experience and the ideal location for marketing our efficiency-increasing systems for logistics automation.”
