Inmarsat has opened its new Singapore office, which is the company’s largest facility in Asia Pacific region to provide a new solutions lab, demonstration capabilities, training rooms, a knowledge centre and support centre, in addition to enhanced production and storage facilities.
The opening ceremony was attended by Inmarsat’s CEO Rupert Pearce, Beh Kain Teik, Executive Director, Office for Space Technology and Industry (OSTIn), Singapore Economic Development Board along with many Inmarsat partners and customers.
“Demand for Inmarsat’s mobile broadband services is increasing across the region and this facility reflects our confidence in the growth potential of Asia Pacific,” said Mr Pearce.
“Through this new facility, we are confirming our on-going commitment to Singapore as the base for our regional operations.
“With the start of global commercial services for our latest satellite fleet, Global Xpress (GX), at the end of last year, we expect to see demand increase still further. Alongside Inmarsat’s core markets, including the Aviation, Enterprise, Government and Maritime industries, we are seeing significant interest in the potential of powerful, reliable satellite communications from sectors which have not previously used satellite communications.
