With the establishment of beflex Malaysia Snd.Bhd. and KATEK Singapore Pty.Ltd., the KATEK Group has continued its growth course with two strategic subsidiaries in Asia. With the new openings, the KATEK Group lays a significant foundation for electronics development and manufacturing in an international context. Through the new locations, the KATEK Group and its beflex brand are creating relevant synergies in the prototyping segment. Extended security of supply through global sourcing for the KATEK Group; The fact that the electronics industry sometimes must contend with volatile market events is demonstrated by the shortage of components that has prevailed worldwide for some time. Here, the size and market presence of the KATEK Group is an advantage, as higher purchasing volumes can be generated and access to components that are difficult to procure worldwide is facilitated. At the same time, the "local-for-local" approach is strengthened with the International Purchase Office, as KATEK Singapore acts as a sourcing center for beflex Malaysia with the aim of building a resilient supply chain to serve Euro-Asian customers in the best possible way.
