Veolia Water Technologies moved its Asia Pacific headquarters to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Veolia moved the headquarters from Singapore to strengthen innovative partnerships with leading, regional industrial companies and local government officials.
In 2018, Veolia’s Asia Pacific business grew significantly, contributing 15 per cent to the company’s global revenue.
In addition, approximately 12–15 per cent of Veolia’s 1,100 Asia Pacific employees are based in Malaysia.
“With its reliable infrastructure and central location in South East Asia, Kuala Lumpur is a strategic location for our Asia Pacific headquarters,” said Veolia Asia Pacific CEO Frederic Thery.
“Coupled with the strong multilingual and multicultural local talent available in Malaysia, it will give us the edge, speed, and proximity to manage different countries’ unique needs across the region.”
The move reflects Veolia’s aim to further capture market growth and expand its footprint in the region.
Later this year, Veolia will enter the final phase of the Tun Razak Exchange sewage treatment plant project in Kuala Lumpur, the first fully integrated commercial water reclaim project in Southeast Asia and one of Veolia’s significant global efforts for sustainable development.
