30 Years of ZEISS Operations


18 January 2014


Carl Zeiss Pte. Ltd. was first officially registered as a company in Singapore in 1984. This year therefore marks the 30th anniversary of ZEISS operations in Singapore. The Singapore office has been the sales and service company (SSC) responsible for the Southeast Asia region since 1990, acting as the base for ZEISS business in countries including Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia and the Philippines.

The work of the employees at the Singapore location includes handling sales and service orders for the Vision Care, Industrial Metrology, Medical Technology and Microscopy business groups. Orders for camera Lenses, cinemizers and semiconductor metrology systems in Southeast Asia are also processed in Singapore. To keep things running smoothly, the Singapore team keeps in close touch with the offices in the sales region's other countries at all times.

Singapore is also home to the ZEISS Advanced Imaging Centre Singapore which opened in 2008. This unique demonstration center gives customers the opportunity to try out and experience the full range of ZEISS solutions for sample imaging and analysis on both micro and nano scales.

ZEISS Singapore’s 30th birthday was celebrated by employees with our guest of honour being Dr. Michael Kaschke, President & CEO of Carl Zeiss AG, at the Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore. It was an incredibly fun night with the theme being “Retro” to take us back to the past 30 years of service.
