Rigel Medical, part of the Seaward Group, has invested in Singapore, with its first facility in Asia.

It’s the latest step in Rigel’s plan to reach new markets in the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) region.

The new venture also cements the company’s partnership with its Malaysian distributor, Leedon Technology, which will manage the facility.

Andrew Upton, managing director at Seaward Group, said: “Rigel has exciting plans to reach more customers across the world – and our new service centre is just the latest step in our expansion.

“I am delighted to be able to offer a more local service to our customers in Southeast Asia thanks to our partners at Leedon Technology.

Rigel Medical, soon to be rebranded as Seaward Medical, worked closely with healthcare equipment supplier Leedon Technology to train its personnel – as well as supplying specialist calibration equipment.
