On August 8, 2017, Pepperl+Fuchs opened a Malaysia sales office in Petaling Jaya, Selangor. With the new site, Pepperl+Fuchs has expanded its international network in Southeast Asia by another country. Customers in Malaysia were previously served by the company’s Asian headquarters in Singapore and distribution partners.
From now on, six employees will take care of customers in Malaysia and provide them with the best possible service in the fields of factory and process automation. With a local presence, Pepperl+Fuchs will be able to better support and build closer relationships with local companies.
Malaysia’s economy is forward-looking and has grown strongly in recent years. Due to the country’s manufacturing focus, Industry 4.0 and technology improvement are important topics. Pepperl+Fuchs, as a pioneer in automation technology and explosion protection, provides companies with innovative product solutions for these challenges, opening up new possibilities.
In Malaysia, products from Pepperl+Fuchs can help increase efficiency and improve processes in material handling, assembly automation, robotics, and many other markets and applications. Due to the new office, Pepperl+Fuchs is now right next door to Malaysian customers and can support them on-site with wide-ranging expertise.
"Opening the new sales office in Malaysia is an important milestone for Pepperl+Fuchs“, said Shane Parr, Executive Vice President Process Automation, at the opening event. "We have had a strong presence in Malaysia for over 20 years. With this new office, we will continue to build on the successes that our business achieved over the past years and assist our customers even better with their challenges."
Matthias Gunkel, Executive Vice President Factory Automation, added: "We are excited about the opening of our Malaysia office. With our dedicated team and passion for innovative technologies, we look forward to providing our local customers with the best possible service and being their automation partner. Your automation is our passion."
