Flexicon Corp. accelerated its expansion in Southeast Asia with the opening of a new facility in Singapore.
"Flexicon bulk handling equipment has been purchased throughout Southeast Asia since 1975, with exponential growth over the last several years," says David Gill, president. "We have committed to accelerating this growth with the opening of our Singapore office and hiring of a dedicated staff with full access to Flexicon's corporate resources."
The Singapore office will be headed by Jhuning Chng, applications engineer, who has trained on site at Flexicon's Bethlehem, Pa., headquarters over the past year. Chng will be responsible for building relationships with plant managers, engineers and other decision-makers at Southeast Asian facilities that handle bulk solid materials across the food, pharmaceutical, packaging and general chemical industries.
The Singapore office will have direct access to details on more than 15,000 installations of Flexicon bulk handling equipment, including flexible screw conveyors, tubular cable conveyors, pneumatic conveying systems, bulk bag conditioners, bulk bag dischargers, bulk bag fillers, drum/box/container tippers, manual dumping stations, weigh batching systems and engineered plant-wide systems integrated with new or existing equipment or processes.
