Singapore has built its global reputation for precision engineering on the success of home-grown companies such as ISDN Holdings. From a two-person outfit providing motorised solutions for automatic equipment, the company has expanded to 846 people serving more than 8,000 clients across China and Southeast Asia.

ISDN leverages its strategic partnerships with leading global hardware and software providers to deliver top-notch motion control, industrial computing and other engineering solutions to a broad range of industries from medical and semiconductors to robotics and renewable energy.

“We completely understand what the market needs,” says managing director and president Teo Cher Koon. “We pick the best technologies from around the world and put them together to come up with the optimal engineering solution that gives customers the best value for their money.”

To deliver this commitment, ISDN draws on its global network of manufacturing facilities and sales outlets.

The company has a strong presence in Asia, especially in China where it has 49 offices. More than a third of ISDN’s staff is composed of seasoned engineers and sales people highly qualified to determine client requirements relating to the whole lifecycle of products – from development and prototyping to mass production and repair.

Looking forward, ISDN sees further growth in Asia. The company is working with three engineering, procurement and construction companies from China to
put up hydroelectric power plants in Indonesia.

ISDN also expects stronger demand for its products and services in Vietnam, where South Korean, Taiwanese and Japanese manufacturers plan to transfer their production lines for items such as smartphones to tap the low cost and young workforce of Vietnam.

China, however, remains as ISDN’s most important market, considering the country’s demand for higher quality and more advanced production processes.

“These industry evolutions always require fresh and more efficient technologies,” Teo says. “We’re constantly on the lookout for partners who may have new technology, but need us to penetrate markets.”
