Investing in Asia to Support Growth and Better Customer Service


Building on its 81 years of heritage, KOP Surface Products is strengthening its regional management team and expanding its facilities to deliver better service to customers and support growth in Asia.

Headquartered in Singapore, KOP Surface Products already has an established team to serve its strong customer base across Thailand, Malaysia, the Middle East and Indonesia. With new growth opportunities in new markets on the horizon, the company has taken action to strengthen its team with several new appointments.

Andy Briston has joined the company as vice president of sales and marketing. Although based in Singapore, he has a global role and will be traveling frequently to meet with customers worldwide and to oversee all sales and marketing activities at KOP Surface Products. Elsewhere, Tan Ewe Hin has been named as sales manager for Malaysia, Myanmar and China, while Deny Martin Panjaitan has joined the company as sales and marketing manager for Indonesia.

We pride ourselves on the expertise and experience we have and these latest additions underline that.”
