Sees business growth in SE Asia as new hospitals are built
Howorth Air Technology, a supplier of containment and infection control systems headquartered in Bolton, Lancashire in the UK, has opened Howorth Singapore, a regional headquarters that will service all of SE Asia.
The new office, located at TradeHub21 in Singapore, will handle the complete Howorth product portfolio of both pharmaceutical and medical products. Everything from initial concept design through to validation of products shipped out from the UK to clients in Asia will take place there.
DISA Engineering represents Howorth in Malaysia and the Philippines.
Howorth’s managing director Adrian Parkin travelled to Singapore to put the final touches to the new office and with Simon White, from the Singapore office, met 30 representatives from the Malaysian Ministry of Health.
He also presented information on the company’s Exflow Ultra Clean ventilation canopy and pharmaceutical containment equipment to healthcare and pharmaceutical personnel at the APHM (Association of Private Hospitals in Malaysia) Conference and Exhibition in Kuala Lumpur.
More than 40 new hospitals are to be built in Singapore and Malaysia over the next five years, and Singapore alone has more than 50 pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities, which means the region is an ideal market for Howorth’s operating theatre and pharmaceutical equipment.
