Singapore: Rolls-Royce has announced that it is to relocate its global headquarters for its marine business to Singapore from London in April 2009. The move, which recognises the increasing importance of AsiaPacific markets to Rolls-Royce, underscores the significance of Singapore as a hub for the it's regional operations. The group has been active in Singapore's marine industry for more than 30 years.

"Rolls-Royce is a global business and while Europe remains a significant market for marine, headquartering our business in Singapore further enhances our global position and will facilitate the development of growing markets in Asia," said Rolls Royce's marine division president, John Paterson (pictured), who is relocating to Singapore. "Working closely with key customers and suppliers in the region we will capitalise on Singapore's central position and maritime expertise as we continue to develop our business."

In 2008 Rolls-Royce established a global head office for its marine services operation in Singapore and today's move builds on that progress. The new marine headquarters will have global responsibility for business development, marketing and corporate services.  [06/02/09]
