Intergraph® has formally opened the newly-expanded Intergraph office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This expansion ensures that Intergraph is fully equipped to support customers in Malaysia, enabling them to implement SmartPlant® and SmartMarine® enterprise suites of engineering solutions for enhanced productivity in their local projects.
The economy of Malaysia - the third-largest economy in South-East Asia - has experienced strong growth, boosted by a vibrant oil and gas industry. The Malaysian government strongly encourages foreign oil company participation through production sharing contracts, resulting in about 40% of oil fields in Malaysia getting developed.
Intergraph's expanded presence in Malaysia will help to support the growth in local oil and gas projects, with a dedicated team providing technical expertise for successful implementation of the integrated SmartPlant and SmartMarine enterprise suites. Intergraph will continue to support both local and global companies in the growing Malaysian market across the process, power and marine industries.
"Malaysia is an important market for us and we welcome the expansion of Intergraph in the country," said Grant McPherson, engineering manager for Vietnam operations and department manager for piping design in Malaysia at Ranhill WorleyParsons.
"Intergraph's increased presence in Malaysia will foster a closer partnership with Ranhill WorleyParsons, and enable us to leverage the industry expertise of a global leader in the enterprise engineering software market for continued success."
Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine president, said, "The expansion of the Intergraph office in Kuala Lumpur brings us closer to our customers in Malaysia and the region, enabling us to deliver superior support in the integrated engineering approach of our next-generation SmartPlant and SmartMarine Enterprise solutions.
"With dedicated local support, this will ensure smoother implementations of Intergraph technology for enhanced safety, quality and productivity of local engineering projects in Malaysia."
