SoftSwitching Technologies Expands Global Reach with New Singapore Headquarters
MIDDLETON, Wis., April 3, 2008 /PRNewswire/ — SoftSwitching Technologies(R) (SST), a growing global leader in the power quality industry, is pleased to announce the opening of its first international office in Singapore. SoftSwitching Technologies Asia, scheduled to open this spring, will promote SoftSwitching Technologies power quality detection and protection solutions for the semiconductor market, and provide a customer support center dedicated to growing the global SoftSwitching Technologies semiconductor business in Asia.
“Asia leads the market in the global semiconductor industry, making Singapore the ideal location for SoftSwitching Technologies Asia,” says Rob Loomis, president and CEO of SoftSwitching Technologies. “The global semiconductor industry welcomes our power quality solutions because they work, and we’re pleased to be expanding into Asia where our solutions are urgently needed. We expect this new office will be the first of many global SoftSwitching Technologies offices launching worldwide as we continue to grow.”
SoftSwitching Technologies entered the Asian market six years ago by establishing a relationship with Singapore distributor PC2M, a member of the Lim Kim Hai Group.
