Congratulations on being our valued customer for almost 25 years! As we, the German Centre Singapore are turning 25 years, we want to say DANKESCHÖN – a big THANK YOU!
Could you please tell us more about your company - what kind of products, services or solutions do you offer as well as the type of customers you serve?
“TÜV Rheinland Group” is a leading provider of technical services worldwide.

Our services included product testing, inspections, certifications and trainings that cater to all industry needs.'
During these 25 years, why was it important for your company to have a ‘footprint’ in Singapore and why do you choose the German Centre Singapore?
TÜV Rheinland is a German multinational company that stands for safety and quality in virtually all areas of business and life. Our highly qualified experts test technical systems and products around the world, support innovations in technology and business, train people in numerous professions and certify management systems according to international standards. Therefore, German Centre Singapore is the best choice for us to showcase our brand identity, bringing the German mindset and expertise to serve Singapore’s market.
Located next to the upcoming Jurong Innovation District, we expect that more corporations will be setting up their operations within the area. As an independent inspection company, we are looking forward to more partnerships and collaborations to help them achieve success for their business goals.
Your company has been in the German Centre for 25 years, what are some of the advantages of being in the building?
Some of the advantages of being in the building are: easy access, facilities such as meeting rooms for rental – in various configurations that are catered towards individual requirements.
More importantly, the staff at German Centre Singapore are always ready to lend a helping hand and offer quick and viable solutions at short notice.
Lastly, the high level of preparedness to handle “black-swan” events, such as COVID-19, is evident as the German Centre Singapore team was efficient in setting up the relevant protocols and provided prompt and clear communications to tenants every step of the way.
Being a long serving tenant, what does your company look forward to on your future landlord-tenant relationship with the German Centre Singapore?
We hope that we can continue to keep our approach of communications transparent and frank so that we can discuss feedback and issues openly for the benefit of both parties.
In addition, we look forward to more innovative facilities management and also greener & more sustainable building solutions to play our part for environment!
What advice would you give to other companies who would like to set up their business in the German Centre Singapore?
Proximity to a vibrant commercial hub is definitely a criteria one should consider. Not only will you be close to your future clients and partners, the amount of time saved on travelling to another part of the island can only be better utilized to generate more innovative business ideas!
We strongly believe that this is plus point for the German Centre Singapore. With the gradual materialization of the Jurong Lake District in the region, the prime location it is currently located at will only bring about more convenience for all stakeholders.
Lastly, what is the best experience / memory you have of the German Centre during these 25 years?
It will definitely be the beer and hotdogs during the bi-annual fire drills!
