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?
In the beginning, our Singapore office was meant to serve as a springboard to other countries in the Asia Pacific. Subsequently, the Singapore office became the hub for Pilz to develop its operations in the Southeast Asia region. Being situated within the German Centre brings us prestige as well as allows us to constantly stay connected with the local German industry and community.
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 provides all the necessary services for us tenants and it is strategically located in the heart of the Singapore's industrial area. Furthermore, the German Centre provides the space and resources to support growing companies expand their businesses and operations further.
Being a long serving tenant, what does your company look forward to on your future landlord-tenant relationship with the German Centre Singapore?
After being situated in the German Centre for some years, we are looking forward to continuously maintaining our good working relationship with the German Centre. We hope to foster more relationships with the ever-growing network within the local German industry and community, as well as within the local Singapore scene with support from the German Centre Singapore.
What advice would you give to other companies who would like to set up their business in the German Centre Singapore?
We would advise them to keep close contact with the German Centre’s friendly staff as they are always prompt in answering tenants’ enquiries, and to also participate in the centre’s activities to get to know the other tenants within the German Centre.
Lastly, what is the best experience / memory you have of the German Centre during these 25 years?
The best memory we had of the German Centre is the bi-annual fire drills as not only did it train us to be ever-ready in times of a fire, it also gave us an opportunity to interact with other tenants within the German Centre. Therefore it allowed us to open doors to potential partnerships and business relationships with other companies.
