Asian Promotions

As Edmund Optics expands its Asia-Pacific operations to service a growing customer demand with the opening of a new global manufacturing, customer support, and distribution facility in Singapore, they have named Francis Ang as Senior Director, Global Manufacturing. Ang will have responsibilities over the development and execution of key manufacturing projects as well as serve as an advisor to EO's operations managers worldwide. His expertise in operations and technology will be extremely important in evolving EO's vision for manufacturing.

"Francis has exhibited extraordinary leadership and his personal dedication to EO's success is remarkable. He not only serves as a model for all our colleagues but also spearheaded the growth of our other global manufacturing facilities," stated Edmund.

Complementing Ang's appointment are the promotions of Vincent Thong, who accepted the position of Managing Director, Edmund Optics Singapore, and Timothy Paul Kennedy as Sales Director of Asia, based out of Japan.

Thong will assume responsibility for the new manufacturing facility in Singapore. His years of experience in manufacturing operations and sales will be an important asset to the manufacturing group. "Vincent is driven by customer service, an essential element to running a successful plant," commented Edmund. "We look forward to his leadership and the continued strong performance of the Singapore operation."

Kennedy will assume the responsibility of Sales Director of Asia. His engineering background combined with a strong knowledge of EO customers, applications, and products makes him ideal to continue the company's international growth. "In addition to Tim's technical background, he has lived and worked in a many diverse countries," stated Edmund. "Equally impressive is his ability to adapt to cultures and to master languages - something I know our global customers will certainly appreciate."
