VWR Secures Foothold in Singapore

Acquisition of Sino Chemical will enhance service to key customers.
VWR International intends to acquire Sino Chemical, a Singaporean scientific laboratory supply distributor. Sino Chemical distributes laboratory chemicals, equipment, and consumables in Singapore.

“We have established relationships with many multinational companies that have operations in the fast-growing Singapore area” says Ted Pulkownik, VWR senior vp of strategy, corporate development, and emerging markets. “This new acquisition further demonstrates our commitment to these key customers and enhanced support for all our local customers.”

The new location will provide realtime services, local sales representation, and coordination of VWR’s Singapore supply chain, according to Pulkownik. The VWR office in Singapore will now be at the Kian Teck Road location.
