Pfeiffer Vacuum, a leading provider of high-tech vacuum solutions, has opened a new service centre in Malaysia.
The 6,000 square foot building will house the company’s administration, sales and service departments. The main activities will be the repair of the dry backing pump range. Other products will follow in the coming months.
The service centre can be located within Kulim Hi-Tech Park (KHTP) at Kulim, Kedah state in northern Malaysia. KHTP was completed in 1996 as the first high-tech industrial park in Malaysia. Occupying a total area of 4,510 acres, KHTP houses one of the largest networks of multinational semiconductor and coating companies in Malaysia.
Dr. Matthias Wiemer, Management Board Member at Pfeiffer Vacuum Technology AG, said the new service centre is a huge milestone in the company’s history.
He continued, “Our business in Malaysia and Singapore is very important for our growth. Asia is the fastest growing area in our company – 40% of our business is related to Asia – so we are happy to be close to Malaysia.”
Pfeiffer Vacuum was founded in 1890 in Asslar, Germany. Today, it has around 2,400 employees worldwide and more than 20 subsidiaries. Its service programme extends from vacuum pumps and chambers through measurement and analysis equipment, up to leak testing and leak detectors and complete vacuum systems as well as service and technical support.
