Rockwell Collins employees, leaders and honored guests joined in celebration last weekend as our company’s Singapore Service Center marked its 20th anniversary. The service center provides engineering and sales support to our Commercial and Government Systems business units throughout the Asia-Pacific region.

David Tan, general manager of the Singapore Service Center and managing director for South East Asia, served as the master of ceremonies for the event, which was held in Singapore on Saturday, Jan. 10. One of only 25 people on staff when the facility opened, Tan said he’s very proud to see how the business has grown and thrived.

“I remember standing inside the building in 1994, which at the time had nothing but bare floors,” said Tan. “We didn’t even have electricity hooked up.”

Two decades later, the Singapore Service Center facility operates as headquarters for our Asia-Pacific operation, employs 125 people and services more than 1,500 avionics, communication and electronic products for our commercial and government customers.

“This milestone is a proud moment for those in the Singapore Service Center, as well as all of Rockwell Collins,” said Jim Walker vice president and managing director for International and Service Solutions in the Asia-Pacific region. “The success throughout the past two decades is a direct result of the hard work and dedication of our employees.”

According to Colin Mahoney, senior vice president for International and Service Solutions and one of the early leaders at the facility, the Singapore Service Center will continue to play an important role as our company extends its reach into the Asia-Pacific market.

“With the anticipated growth in the air transport industry and the potential for expansion in defense markets in the region, I feel really good about how our Singapore Service Center is positioned going forward,” said Mahoney.

Mahoney and Walker were among several people who had the opportunity to give their remarks at the anniversary celebration, along with Col. Trey Meeks, chief, Office of Defence Cooperation, U.S. Embassy of the Republic of Singapore.
