News: Martek open new Singapore office


Innovative Rotherham company, Martek Marine has expanded into the all-important Asia Pacific market by opening a regional office in Singapore.

Manvers-based Martek provides systems for engine emissions monitoring, gas detection, water level detection and cargo tank monitoring that are found in vessels across the world.

Martek Marine (Asia Pacific) Pte. Ltd was incorporated in August this year. Currently around 65% of Martek's business is generated by customers based in Asia Pacific, with a growth rate faster than in Europe and the Americas.

Simon Whitaker, regional director for Martek in the Asia Pacific region, said: "We have decided to set up a regional presence based in Singapore in order to get closer to our many customers in this part of the world.

"Asia is a market rich in potential and this direct presence will help Martek further increase its share in this region.

"The shift in business that Martek has seen in the past 18 months or so has made it vital to have a direct presence in the region. By being in the same time zone, and having sales staff who speak the same language, we will have better connectivity with our customers."

The new team has already achieved notable success. Recently the company secured two important orders from a leading Singapore-based shipmanager. As a result Martek Marine will equip 60 vessels with the Navgard BNWAS system and will also supply up to 500 bottles of calibration gas for use across the company's fleet.
