RÖHLIG Logistics recently opened a new sales office in Penang, Malaysia.

The logistics company said the opening of the new office at the end of October, has expanded the company’s global footprint.

The company described Penang as an economic powerhouse and a major player in the global electronics manufacturing sector.

Röhlig Malaysia general manager Dickson Ooi said the state of Penang has been a focal point of foreign direct investment, particularly from the high-tech manufacturing industry.

“In fact, it recorded the second highest share of manufacturing investments in Malaysia last year,” he said.

“A busy international airport and a feeder seaport connecting Penang to the region’s main ports provide the necessary infrastructure to support growing supply chain demands.”

Röhlig has appointed Samantha Saw as branch manager for the new office.

Ms Saw has more than 20 years of industry experience, mainly in commercial management and procurement roles.

“I am very excited to take on this new challenge with my team of sales and business development experts,” Ms Saw said.

“Our strengthened local presence will enable us to offer even more personal and efficient support to future and existing customers in the Penang region.”
