Total Automation becomes Wärtsilä Automation Services Singapore
Wärtsilä Corporation's subsidiary in Singapore, Total Automation Pte Ltd, is re-named Wärtsilä Automation Services Singapore Pte Ltd. The change is to be effective from September 1, 2008.
The new name, Wärtsilä Automation Services Singapore, will more clearly identify Total Automation as a part of Wärtsilä's global operations and it will in turn promote the company as an established and well-reputed player in the Middle East, South Asia, East Asia as well as South East Asia regions. This will support the strong synergies between the traditional field services, and Wärtsilä's automation products and services.
"The Wärtsilä name will qualify the company with strong financial backing for larger projects, increase its access to our developed global infrastructure, and improve and enlarge the service offering to our customers," says Mr Richard Wiefelspuett, Managing Director, Wärtsilä Automation Services Singapore.
Wärtsilä Automation Services Singapore employs more than 600 people all of whom now, as Wärtsilä employees, have the advantage of transparent and modern HR policies, and global development opportunities. Together, Wärtsilä Singapore and Wärtsilä Automation Services Singapore employ more than 1000 people.
Total Automation's comprehensive portfolio of automation services and strong know-how fits well the strategic goal of Wärtsilä to become the most valued business partner. In 2006, the Total Automation Group became 100 percent owned by Wärtsilä. Today, the company forms part of the global category of automation services within the worldwide Wärtsilä Services Network.
Total Automation commenced business in Singapore in 1987 as a control and instrumentation solutions provider in the marine sector. It quickly grew into a full-fledged automation company with turnkey capabilities and a large base of international customers in various industries.
