Newtec Signs And Celebrates Asian Anniversary

[SatNews] Newtec celebrates a decade and joins a Council.

Newtec has marked 10-years in Asia by today announcing that it has joined the Asia Pacific Satellite Communications Council (APSCC) as a member. APSCC is a non-profit international organization representing all sectors of satellite and space related industries, including private companies, government ministries and agencies, and academic and research entities. The overall objective of APSCC is to promote communications and broadcasting via satellite as well as outer space activities in the Asia-Pacific, for the socio-economic and cultural development of the region.

Newtec has recently augmented and re-organized its team in Asia and has offices in Singapore and Beijing in order to direct more focus towards its products and solutions in the region. Recently appointed Vice President Sales for Asia, Anver Anderson, is optimistic about the prospects the region holds for the company: “We have established an excellent team here in Asia. The support team is already in the process of expanding, which will serve to further improve our local capabilities.

Newtec’s involvement with APSCC will enable us to build new relationships and gain further knowledge of the satellite and space industry in the region. We are proud to be members of such an organization”.
