The new office in Thailand is aimed at improving Gunnebo’s presence in a region that continues to experience fast growth, the company announced in a press release.
This will mean quicker reaction times to capitalize on emerging opportunities and better support for existing customers, the Sweden-based company says.
“We expect a lot of development in the security sector in Thailand, mainly as a result of increasing wealth and improvements being made to the infrastructure,” said Gunnebo president and chief executive officer Per Borgvall. “Our extended service offering here will allow us to better meet emerging customer needs.”
The second new site, a branch office of Gunnebo Singapore, is in Yangon and will give Gunnebo direct access to the local market. The office will introduce Gunnebo security solutions to local customers and provide them with technical support and services.
“By expanding our presence in Southeast Asia, Gunnebo continues to take advantage of the growing opportunities in the region,” Borgvall said. “Strategically these territories are of great importance to the group.”
The Gunnebo Security Group provides security solutions to customers around the globe.
It employs 5,800 people in 33 countries across Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and the Americas, and has a turnover of 580 million euros (Bt24.5 billion). Gunnebo specialises in bank security and cash handling, secure storage, global services and entrance control.
