Microlease set up shop in Malaysia for its customer service, logistics and technical support operations. The Penang facility will enable the company to efficiently address the needs of locally-based clients across the region while providing a more integrated approach for European customers with facilities in the Asia-Pacific.

"Increasing demand from major accounts based in the region and from our OEM partners to work with us locally drove the decision to launch a fully-fledged Asia-Pacific operation. It made sense to have a stronger presence in the region, get closer to local customers and deliver service directly from a local team on the ground familiar with local languages, legislation and culture," said David Whitfield, managing director, Microlease Asia.

Microlease hopes to establish a competitive edge over its rivals by delivering its full range of test and measurement equipment rental services to customers in a broad range of vertical sectors, from semiconductors to contract manufacturing and from aerospace and defence to telecoms.

Looking to the future, the company is expanding its offering into asset management services and interest in this is being shown by customers in the region. It also plans to ultimately expand its geographic coverage of the Asia-Pacific region and grow the size of the local team based there.
