Singapore: Aggreko, the world leader in the provision of temporary power and temperature control solutions, today announced the opening of a new depot in Songkhla, Thailand, to enhance service standards for both existing and potential customers throughout Southeast Asia. The announcement comes as Aggreko seeks to drive business growth in key sectors across the region, with Thailand selected for its strategic location and proximity to current and future customers.
Having traditionally served regional customers from a central location in Singapore, the new service depot will assist the needs of Thailand and neighbouring Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos. The move strengthens Aggreko’s presence and reach across Asia – currently with 27 offices – and allows it to help bridge the power gap in key markets.
In increasing the scope and efficiency of its offering, Aggreko will enable customers to realise their business potential, drive business continuity and power mission-critical assignments until improvements to energy infrastructure can be achieved across the region. It will also allow Aggreko to provide faster turnaround times for services, increased flexibility and significant savings on equipment logistics.
“We are excited by the prospect of increasing our business activity in Thailand, whose vibrant economy and proliferation of relevant industries makes it an obvious location for a second regional depot,” said Debajit Das, Regional Director – APAC (Asia Pacific) for Aggreko. “Our decision to establish a physical presence here reflects confidence from customers in our ability to help them overcome roadblocks and eliminate power limitations in a way that makes business sense, even in the most extreme conditions.”
Kuah Boon Kiam, General Manager, Southeast Asia – Aggreko, added: “Thailand is the cornerstone of Aggreko’s growth plans in Southeast Asia. We aim to build on the success we have already achieved to grow our customer base here and in neighbouring countries by delivering unmatched scale, deep sector-specific knowledge and an experienced team that understands both the local and regional energy landscape.”
