According to UK Trade & Investment, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia are all designated “High Growth Markets”, with Singapore “ranked number one globally by the World Bank in it’s ‘Ease of Doing Business’ report” and also constituting “an ideal springboard to South-East Asia” (from UKTI web-site www.ukti.gov.uk, 2011).
For S Murray & Co these countries have always been key markets for the company and the visit from the 16th to 26th May 2011 by Managing Director Peter Murray and Sales Director Tristan Murray was an important opportunity to reinforce these long-standing relationships together.
Malaysia and Singapore have historically been very strong laboratory markets for S Murray & Co, in particular for the company’s glass products, including Trident Vials, Test Tubes, Specimen Tubes and Jars. The company is also delighted with the development of new relationships in both Indonesia and Singapore, which are already showing signs of continuing this trend for the company.
New initiatives and range extensions for the company’s surgical products, combined with a very strong relationship with S Murray’s Malaysian distributor Darul Medik SDN BHD, certainly makes the market place an exciting prospect for the future.
Over the years, S Murray & Co has rationalised its global distribution network, focusing on key partners to promote the S Murray product range and brand. These relationships have been especially personal in Malaysia, with some partnerships spanning multiple generations within the same organisation. As the next generations become increasingly involved in their respective companies, it creates a sense of enthusiasm and optimism that these relationships will go from strength to strength in the years ahead.
