VBC Pte Ltd – Asia Pacific Stockholding Facility

VBC group opens sales and stock holding facility in Singapore

 

In September 2019, VBC pte ltd opened up it’s Sales and stock holding facility within the JTC aviation hub at Seletar Aerospace Park in Singapore.

The facility will become the main hub for all commercial and sales activities within the ASEAN Region which is one the the fastest growing and exciting markets within the world right now.

Group CEO David Talbot said,

“Over the last few years, we have seen our customer base within ASEAN region grow rapidly. We felt that we needed to support both our existing customers and our new customers better.  We invested in the infrastructure to service them in the same way that we service our customers in Europe. As a 1st tier supplier to many global OEM’s we felt the time was right to align our presence to theirs around the world. Opening up in Singapore was actually the culmination of a 3 year project. A lot of hard work went into this and it would not have been possible without the amazing work and support from the staff we have back in the UK.  “

These are exciting times for the group to be sure, but why did we choose Singapore?

” In the beginning, we had very little knowledge about Asia, the right location in which to invest was not obvious to us. Our existing customers are spread throughout the region and we had done very little in terms of commercial visits. Although there were many good options for us, we found that Singapore had ticked just about every box. The energy and maturity of the Aerospace industry community within Singapore was an attractive feature. When we became members of AAIS (Association of Aerospace Industries Singapore) we were greeted with an openness and friendliness that made us feel right at home from the moment we started.”

Having the sales and stock holding facility certainly goes a long way to supporting the region as well as we do in Europe, but we are not stopping there.

” Providing products is just a part of what we do. Our roots are actually around technical training, consultancy and support. It is a big part of our DNA and VBC Pte ltd will be a hub for which we expand these services within the region”
