Munich/Singapore - Apr 28, 2014 — Rohde & Schwarz has inaugurated its new building, "Das Spektrum," in the Changi Business Park in Singapore. The SGD 58 million investment (around EUR 33 million) underscores the location's strategic significance for the German electronics company. This Rohde & Schwarz global hub is a platform for research, development, production, global sourcing and supply chain management in areas of test and measurement, broadcasting, secure communications, and radio monitoring and radio location while helping to skill up Singapore as a talent pipeline for high technology engineering careers.
In the coming years, Rohde & Schwarz plans to further invest in Singapore. Singapore is home to two entities for Rohde & Schwarz: Rohde & Schwarz Asia and Regional Headquarters Asia.
Rohde & Schwarz Asia was launched 17 years ago with seven company employees. The new building will house some 350 employees. The Munich-based electronics company plans to hire additional employees in the next three years to support the enormous growth in the region.
