Carel opens office in Thailand

Olympia-Thai-Plaza-Building_webTHAILAND: Italian controls and humidification company Carel has opened a new sales office in Bangkok.

The Carel Group also operates through its Asian distributors in Vietnam, Indonesia, Taiwan and the Philippines.

Asia Pacific accounts for more than 20% of Carel’s sales, with a significant market share that is forecast to grow rapidly over the next three years.

“The opening of this subsidiary in Thailand represents a further important step in the development of our distribution and service network in the southeast Asian market, one that for us is of significant strategic importance”, commented Francesco Nalini, Carel group managing director.

“Having a direct presence in the country will allow us to respond adequately to the needs of a rapidly growing market, and position ourselves to effectively exploit future growth in the area.” he added.
