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 open and welcoming country in any aspect. Convenient to meet and travel in and out. Its frequent high rankings in the ease of doing business or the possibility to get the required people, locally or from abroad on board for the job is outstanding.
The German Centre is not just a welcoming office building. Its wide diversity of tenants who mainly support the manufacturing industry in the Asian Region make it an ideal place for information exchange and collaboration among its occupants.
Your company has been in the German Centre for 25 years, what are some of the advantages of being in the building?
Frequent industry events, seminars and support on other matters catered towards German and European companies are advantages that probably only the German Centre can offer.
Being a long serving tenant, what does your company look forward to regarding your future landlord-tenant relationship with the German Centre Singapore?
That it remains to be at the good level it is currently at.
What advice would you give to other companies who would like to set up their business in the German Centre Singapore?
The German Centre is the right place to be for small to medium sized businesses. It’s a great place to mingle and meet with other tenants, exchange information, or to go for a coffee or beer with.
Lastly, what is the best experience / memory you have of the German Centre during these 25 years?
The roof top parties and a few of the B2B Networking events.
