Sharpening its focus on the fast-growing markets of the Far East and Oceania, Meyer Sound Laboratories, Inc. has established Meyer Sound Asia as a new entity to guide marketing and technical support operations throughout the region. Strategically headquartered in Singapore, Meyer Sound Asia will coordinate efforts with national distributors across a broad region extending from Australia and New Zealand through Southeast Asia and beyond.
“We have seen tremendous growth in this region over the past few years and we’re committed to building that momentum into the future,” said Meyer Sound Senior Vice President of Marketing John McMahon. “We are expanding our company presence with a full team dedicated to business development, design services and after-sale technical support specifically for Asia and Oceania. The best solution was to establish Meyer Sound Asia with an office in Singapore, a hub city with quick access to all countries in the region.”
Heading the technical team in Singapore is Technical Sales Support Specialist Andrew Poh, who brings to Meyer Sound a wealth of experience in system design and integration from prior positions with a global acoustical consulting firm and a major audio manufacturer. Also based in Singapore is Salmah El Haissane, Marketing & PR Coordinator for Asia. Additional technical support and administrative personnel will be added to Meyer Sound’s Singapore team in the coming months.
“For a solutions-based tech company, having more ‘boots on the ground’ in the same time zones is a no-brainer,” noted Sales Manager for Oceania and Southeast Asia Chris D’bais. “With a growing and highly skilled team based in Asia, we will not only support local customers but also global tours coming through the region and help coordinate large installation projects working with international partners. Providing direct access to factory support — including design services, tech support and sales management — means we can offer the personal connection to our regional customers that Meyer Sound is known for worldwide.”
The new Singapore office augments Meyer Sound’s direct presence throughout Asia and Oceania, with existing company sales offices continuing in India (Mumbai) and the Middle East (Dubai).
As another component of expanding operations in Asia, Meyer Sound has announced new or extended partnerships. EV Group of Hanoi has been appointed Meyer Sound distributor for Vietnam.
The Coda Group Pte Ltd, longtime Meyer Sound distributor for Singapore, now also will assume distributorship for Malaysia. Bangkok-based Numthip Associates Co., Ltd has been appointed the new Meyer Sound pro markets distributor for Thailand.
Two new distributors have been named for the residential home cinema market: Deco 2000 of Bangkok for Thailand and PT.Karta Jaya Elektrindo for Indonesia.
