New Kautex representative for Southeast Asia

Sidel buys Italy’s PET Engineering

Germany’s Kautex Maschinenbau, manufacturer of blow moulding machines, has opened its eighth overseas branch office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, headed by Louis Koay, an experienced sales professional.

In view of the significant demand for consumer and industrial packaging, as well as an automotive market capable of significant growth, the Southeast Asian region has increasingly become the focus of international plastic processing companies.

Since Malaysia provides excellent conditions with its location between Singapore and Thailand, accessibility and an efficient infrastructure and qualified engineers, Kautex has picked the country for its Southeast Asian representation.

“The number of our customers in Southeast Asia is growing steadily, so that we see an increasing need to expand both sales and service in this economically important region. Customer proximity is an important factor,” explains Andreas Lichtenauer, Managing Partner at Kautex Maschinenbau. “Our new office will make customer contact easier for the companies located there. At the same time, processes can be significantly accelerated so that we can help customers faster.”

“With Louis Koay, we now have an experienced sales professional for our customers in the region. He also serves as the primary contact for potential new customers. Additionally, the new regional office manager will provide the existing representatives with further support. In the medium-term outlook, two service technicians and a sales assistant will strengthen the team,” added Andreas.

With 550 employees in Germany and a further 200 around the world, the company reached an annual turnover of EUR144 million in 2017. In addition to its HQ in Bonn, a Customer Service Centre in Berlin and regional offices in the US, Russia, China, Italy, India, Mexico and Malaysia, Kautex operates a global network of service and distribution offices.
