Flightcase and speaker cabinet solutions specialist Penn Elcom has opened a new sales and distribution hub in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
This is designed to enable fast access through local sales support centres - primarily in Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand - of the full range of Penn Elcom products.
It reflects generally buoyant markets and strong trading in Asia over the last 12 months, as well as being an integral element of Penn’s planned medium-term global expansion strategy.
Heading up the operation will be Jane Li, who has worked for some time as Operations Manager for Penn’s Logistics & Quality assurance centre in Xaimen, China. She will initially run a full time staff of three people.
The creation of the new KL facility enables Penn Elcom’s clients and end users of all sizes to benefit from direct shipments and optimised efficiency, ensuring even faster turnarounds for their orders.
“It effectively streamlines our entire operation servicing this part of Asia and the surrounding areas,” confirms Phil Stratford, CEO of Penn Elcom Inc.
He adds that they in turn will have access to a far broader customer base and clients already enjoying Penn Elcom’s renowned service can tap in to numerous additional advantages including immediate access to products and same-day dispatch / shipping.
Penn Elcom will be the only hardware and component manufacturer in the region to offer such a comprehensive range of these types of products from stock.
Penn Elcom’s Chinese based manufacturing operation was launched in 2005. The company was among the first in the entertainment industry to underline the potential for high end, quality-engineered production in China delivering all the standards of excellence for which the brand is famous.
Penn Elcom has also recently expanded its 19 inch rack production capacity in China.
