says Ko Yamamoto, Managing Director of Meiden Singapore Pte. Ltd. “Last year we also delivered our 20,000th switch gear to the Singaporean power grid”. Meiden Singapore has become a major player in Singaporean power utility and rail infrastructure projects, as well as a key player in water treatment projects. While the company is developing its business within the private sector (oil and gas, petrochemical and manufacturing), long-term public sector partnerships continue to drive its business. “The Singaporean government is implementing power utility and rail networkexpansion projects,” says Yamamoto. “From planning to delivery, we guarantee our highly-trained local employees will deliver the best quality of service for these projects and we expect our business in Singapore to remain constant in the short and long-term”. “The Singaporean market makes up approximately half of Meidensha Corporation’s Southeast Asian turnover and the company is playing a major role in supporting’nation building’ initiatives.Also, this year marks our fiftieth anniversary in Thailand, and it is the second largest market for our business in the region.We are proud of our long history of working with our partners across Southeast Asia,” says Hiroaki Wakui, Managing Director of Meiden Asia Pte Ltd, whose role is specifically to oversee and lead activities by all the group companies in the region through the regional headquarters. “Today, we are eager to enter developing markets such as India and the Greater Mekong Region, where we see demand for rail, construction and infrastructure projects. With our regional growth-plan in place and our close ties to Singapore, we look forward to celebrating Meidensha Corporation’s 120 year anniversary next year.
