As part of international expansion plans in 2013 the firm formed its Singapore based division, Hydro Group Asia, which has shown an annual increase of sales in the region of over £1.5M. The five new Business Partner agreements are with Uni-One in Taiwan, ISL in China, Oceanpixel in the Philippines, PT Indonesia in Indonesia and DKHG in Vietnam.
Steve Ang, Hydro Group Asia technical sales manager, said: “Entering into these new agreements allows us to improve our network across South East Asia, as part of our continued growth plans for the region. As we specialise in custom designs, improving our network also means a greater level of contact with our customers, which is vital for our hands on design and engineering approach.”
Doug Whyte, Hydro Group managing director, said: “Asia currently represents Hydro Group’s second largest export market, with significant growth in demand for our range of subsea optical cables, electrical cables and connectors from defence markets and increasingly energy customers, due to the expansion of exploration activities in the region.
“These new agreements allow us to increase efficiency and ensure regular interaction with customers across the region. We look forward to working with our new Business Partners and fulfilling increasing demand for our products.”
