Pleasanton, California (EastBayDaily) — NextWindow, the market and technology leader in optical touch screens for personal computers, today announced the opening of its global operations headquarters in Singapore. Established as NextWindow Singapore PTE Ltd., the new office will provide sales, service and engineering support to customers and partners in the region and globally. The office will also enable NextWindow to work more closely with PC manufacturers and original design manufacturers (ODMs) on the next generation of touch screen-enabled PCs.
Southeast and North Asia are at the center of a consumer-driven initiative to develop new touch screen PCs for the world market. All of the largest PC and LCD display brand companies have their products manufactured in the region, either directly or through their Asia-based ODMs. NextWindow Singapore will work with these and other customers and partners to design and develop new touch-enabled personal computing products. NextWindow Singapore initially will have a staff of 10, including Vice President of Global Operations, Nigel Devine.
“NextWindow is an industry leader in touch-screen technology for personal computers. We are pleased that NextWindow has chosen to establish its global operations headquarters in Singapore,” said Dr. Beh Swan Gin, Managing Director of the Singapore Economic Development Board. “It demonstrates Singapore’s attractiveness as a home base for technology companies to work with their customers, partners and suppliers in Asia to undertake design and development work for international markets.”
“It’s no secret that Asia is the worldwide hub for PC manufacturing and product design,” said Al Monro, CEO at NextWindow. “Establishing operational headquarters in Singapore is a strategic move that will allow NextWindow to build stronger relationships with the world’s largest manufacturers and designers. We have dedicated significant personnel and financial resources to establishing a presence in Asia to show our commitment to serving the growing touch screen marketplace.”
