KVH Industries Asia Pte. Ltd. has officially opened in Singapore, expanding KVH Industries Inc.’s mini-VSAT Broadband satellite communications service and TracVision satellite TV system sales, service, and support to the region’s commercial maritime market. Also known as KVH Singapore, the new business unit will support the growing demand for these offerings. Singapore is a preeminent commercial-shipping hub, and the region claims more than two-thirds of the world’s 20 busiest seaports, according to Jim Dodez, Vice President of Marketing and Strategic Planning for the Middletown, RI-based company. “We are now more effectively placed to pursue these opportunities, seek out new business in the region’s shipbuilding industry, and support our local and regional distribution partners,” he said.
