MEC Singapore and Monitor Coatings Singapore now operate from a new combined location
December 2015

For MEC, the ASEAN region is a driver for growth. From our regional headquarters in Singapore we have over the past years grown the business by establishing new companies and intensifying our cooperation with regional partners and distributors. With the 2013 acquisition of Monitor Coatings Group we acquired a factory for the repair and maintenance to oilfield equipment. In 2014 we moved this operation into a new and expanded factory, which also allowed Castolin Eutectic to expand its service offerings to the region. In December 2015 our two previously separate organizations moved into this one location. Combining the activities of Monitor Coatings and Castolin Eutectic will provide us with a platform for growth in Singapore and the entire ASEAN region. We are proud to be able to combine our services and activities in Singapore, thereby growing into an even stronger, more powerful and competent partner to our customers in the region.
