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?
Singapore is an attractive hub with a strategic gateway to South East Asia. It is the world’s busiest tradehub and a prime location for investments in the Asia Pacific region. Being a politically stable country with excellent connectivity and pro-business environment, this is an ideal place for us to establish our base. Having a positive footprint is crucial to our business as it helps us to achieve sustained growth and determine a particular presence in Singapore.
We choose German Centre Singapore due to both its internal and external building ecosystem. It provides easy access to various facilities, and many opportunities for companies to connect with business partners and customers within the building. It is a perfect place to work, network and do business.
Your company has been in the German Centre for 25 years, what are some of the advantages of being in the building?
The German Centre is very accessible as it is conveniently located close to major expressways so we can reach our customers and clients easily within a short period of time. It also offers various amenities such as a TCC café bistro in the lobby, several food courts that are within walking distance and even shuttle services during lunchtime.
From a business perspective, we get to connect with the German business community in Singapore and ASEAN. With various companies under one roof, we get to meet and network with like-minded people.
Being a long serving tenant, what does your company look forward to on your future landlord-tenant relationship with the German Centre Singapore?
We look forward to embracing and being part of the community with the German Centre. With various tenants under one roof, we hope to connect and collaborate more with each other. In the future, German Centre Singapore can organise more events to bring us together, provide platforms for us to showcase our technologies and learn more about other tenants’ products and services. By providing a wider platform with German and external communities, we get to connect with like-minded people.
Amidst this Covid-19 pandemic situation, events and exhibitions can be done online through webinars. This way, we can continue connecting with our tenants and external communities on a virtual platform.
What advice would you give to other companies who would like to set up their business in the German Centre Singapore?
For other companies who would like to set up their businesses in the German Centre Singapore, they should be open-minded to meeting and networking with other businesses within the same building. This place allows us to collaborate and exchange ideas with one another.
Lastly, what is the best experience / memory you have of the German Centre during these 25 years?
Throughout our years in the German Centre, the place has been well-maintained, with surrounding facilities and equipment kept up to good standard and clean. Furthermore, the security is also well-monitored thus making us feel safe whilst working here.
During emergency fire drill practices, the German Centre provides opportunities for us to meet other tenants and connect with them through food and beverages such as beer and German sausages which is a meaningful effort. Welcome events and exhibitions are also held regularly for business to showcase and share their products and services with others.
