Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum strengthens local presence in Singapore and India

Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum has opened two new production and service facilities for the Asian region. In Singapore, the premises includes a service centre as well as a warehouse, now reaching just over 9,000 sq.ft., tripling the previous space.
In India, the facilities of Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum in Pune will also serve as a new assembly and service location thus catering to local demands of vacuum technology, engineering and services.

Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum has opened new production and service facilities in Singapore and India. Being close to customers is an important factor to meet the increasing demands of the local markets, also with standardized and fully customized vacuum solutions. Therefore, Leybold Vacuum complements the already existing sales and service network in Asia.
The new premises of Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum Singapore Pte. Ltd. now include a service centre as well as a warehouse, now reaching just over 9,000 sq.ft., tripling the space of the previous locality. With this new service centre Leybold Vacuum is now able to service the fore vacuum pumps in-house, thus improving on turnaround times and reducing transporting issues. Customers will also benefit from the lean processes of the bigger warehouse as stock keeping and logistics are more effective thereby reducing delivery times and optimizing management, also due to the convenient location nearby PIE & AYE, the major expressways in Singapore. A short distance to Commonwealth MRT station complements the infrastructural advantages.
Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum will celebrate the move to this location and inauguration on 22 June 2012.
Similar improvements on customer oriented logistics and proximity will be provided by the new facilities of Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum in Pune, India. Founded in 2005, the opening of the new Centre of Excellence on 26 May 2012, will further contribute to the growth scenario of Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum in South East Asia, as the location will also serve as a new assembly and service location thus catering to local demands of vacuum technology, engineering and services. The new facility will also have state-of-the-art vacuum gauge calibration facility with national and international traceability, and start offering an improved product range, with the local designing and installation of standardized or fully customized vacuum solutions for customers in India, and other Asian countries.
Together with the recent production capacity increase at the manufacturing site in Tianjin, China, Leybold Vacuum acts on its strategic imperative of customer proximity. Closeness to customers in India and Asia is a crucial factor in increasing the capacity for the overall support of high-tech vacuum solutions, but especially for additional performance such as vacuum consulting, engineering, design, software programming, and assembly.
