Pleuger continues its expansion into Asia, opening a new sales office in Singapore, adding to the service and sales offices in Hamburg, Orléans, Moscow and Miami.

The new office is located in the Singapore Water Exchange, within National Water Agency PUB’s WaterHub premises at Toh Guan Road East. Singapore Water Exchange brings together water-related stakeholders to leverage mutual strengths to push the frontiers of water innovation and business growth. The proximity to PUB’s offices, facilities and suite of water experts provides opportunities for Pleuger to access the wide wide network of industry counterparts.

To head up the sales operation for South Asia and Oceania, Pleuger has recruited Shahril Ahmad as a Head of Sales South Asia and Oceania, who brings nearly 20 years’ experience in the industry, specifically with centrifugal and positive displacement pump technology. He has extensive experience in Oil & Gas, Water & Wastewater, Power Generation and Industrial Processing markets with extensive knowledge in API, ANSI, ISO, HI and ASME standards to support major end user and EPC requirements. He also holds a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical & Production Engineering, as well as a Master’s degree in Mechanics & Material from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.

Commenting on his new role, Shahril said, “Pleuger is a well renowned and respected brand with an enviable track record for product reliability and durability. I am very excited to be opening the new office here in Singapore as part of Pleugers global support network. I look forward to providing customers with the very best commercial and technical pump solutions.”

Group CEO of Pleuger said “Operating independently since 2018, the opening of our Singapore branch is an important step for Pleuger's presence in Asia. Expanding our operations and reach here is a part of our global strategy to deliver high quality, durable and long lasting submersible motor and pump solutions to our markets.” And COO of Pleuger adds “These are exciting times for Pleuger, so I am particularly delighted that Shahril Ahmad will be heading up our sales operation for the region, since he brings a great deal of experience as well as versatility.“

Pleuger became a member of the Singapore Water Association (SWA), a dynamic cooperation between private sector players who want to give Singapore's growing water industry a new dynamic and will contribute to cooperation and the exchange of ideas and knowledge.
