STRATACACHE has opened a new warehouse and logistics centre near its Asia-Pacific headquarters office in Singapore, intended to coordinate with the company’s 250,000-square-foot production facility in Ningbo, China.
The new facility will help in plans to build optimised solutions for advanced technology such as digital signs, augmented and virtual reality, mobile sensors, computer vision technology and artificial intelligence.
Operations in the facility will include software testing, builds of media players and commercial grade tablets, integration of STRATACACHE’s ruggedised outdoor displays and a regional service and configuration centre to support the 10 STRATACACHE Asia-Pacific sales offices outside China.
“Continuing to build a local execution capability is vital to our growth plan of our global footprint and exceeding our customers’ expectations when partnering with STRATACACHE to bring advanced consumer experiences to market,” said Manish Kumar, the company’s managing director and SVP of Asia-Pacific operations.
“As STRATACACHE grows with our global customer base and adds new capabilities, we continue to build up the infrastructure to support the growth through our centralised Singapore operations,” Kumar said.
In the past 12 months, Kumar has overseen the teams and operation behind announcements including new locations, retail experiences and hardware such as the debut of new retail technology concepts at Retail Asia Expo; expansion of India and Asia-Pacific operations; and acquisition of Chinese embedded computing and commercial tablet manufacturing company, rebranded Scala China — all in 2018.
Earlier this year, before the opening of the new facility in Singapore, STRATACHE centralised Asia-Pacific operations in new Singapore headquarters and opened a new Shanghai-based customer centre.
“There are one billion consumers entering the middle class in India, China, Indonesia and Malaysia,” said Chris Riegel, CEO of the STRATACACHE family of marketing technology companies.
“The suite of STRATACACHE technologies brings an extremely powerful way for retailers and brands to create customer experiences while improving their financial performance,” Riegel said.
