Inmarsat Opens its Largest Asia Pacific Office in Singapore
[Via Satellite 01-22-2016] Inmarsat has expanded its presence in Singapore, opening a new 1,700 square meter office — the company’s largest facility in the Asia Pacific. Singapore has been Inmarsat’s Asia Pacific headquarters since 2008, but the company increased its investment to tap into the country’s infrastructure, culture and the talent pool while expanding further into the region. The new office in Toa Payoh, Central Region Singapore, provides a new solutions lab, demonstration capabilities, training rooms, a knowledge center and support center, in addition to enhanced production and storage facilities.
Coinciding with the opening of the new office, Inmarsat announced that it has signed an agreement with local partner SingTel for the provision of Inmarsat’s L-TAC services, enabling SingTel to provide Beyond Line of Sight (BLOS) mobile communications to a broad range of government users in the Asia Pacific region. The contract enhances Inmarsat and SingTel’s relationship in the government sector.
“Demand for Inmarsat’s mobile broadband services is increasing across the region and this facility reflects our confidence in the growth potential of Asia Pacific,” said Rupert Pearce, CEO of Inmarsat.
