Swedev AB is stepping up – Business in Southeast Asia
Swedev AB, one of the market leaders in Doctor Blades and manufacturer of the SWED/CUT® doctor blade, is now launching a new market strategy in South East Asia. In order to be closer to the market Swedev AB has now opened a warehouse in Laem Chabang, Bangkok area, Thailand. This warehouse will serve the Thai market as well as most countries in the South East Asia region.
Per Lövgren, International Sales Manager at Swedev AB,responsible for the markets in South East Asia, India and Australia will as of August 1st 2015 be operating from Thailand.
Swedev AB considers the ASEAN region as possibly the strongest growing market for packaging industry in the world. Having Per Lövgren stationed in Thailand will lead to a closer contact with distributors and customers in the region which will give Swedev AB a stronger position in the ASEAN area. The warehouse with local stock in the region will keep the lead time from order to delivery to a minimum.
Swedev AB believes that being present in the market place and keeping the lead time down to a minimum is an important key to success in the ASEAN area.
