Hexcel opening new sales office in Malaysia
Increased composites business activity in Southeast Asia prompts the expansion for Hexcel.
Composites fiber and resin supplier Hexcel (Stamford, Conn., USA) has announced the opening of a new sales office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The new office has been established to support Hexcel’s growing business for composites in the Southern Asia Pacific region and to provide more efficient service to customers. Newly appointed sales manager for South East Asia Pacific, Jobst Queckboerner, said, “Kuala Lumpur is an ideal location for a Hexcel sales office in South East Asia, at the center of the region and with easy access to all nearby countries, including regular flights to Australia and New Zealand. Important Hexcel customers, including CTRM and ACM, are located close by. Moreover, with the award to Hexcel of the primary structures prepreg contract for the Airbus A350 XWB program, we expect to see growth in our aerospace business in the region. It therefore made good sense strategically for Hexcel to locate in KL — to be able to provide customers with very efficient customer service and technical support and to reinforce our partnership approach with them.”
