Foothill Ranch, CA, United States, 2008/09/05 - Bal Seal Engineering, Inc., a U.S.- based sealing, connecting and energizing products manufacturer, has chosen Hong Kong as a base of operations for its Asia Pacific sales office.
In early September, the company launched Bal Seal Asia Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary, and opened offices in Hong Kong’s Chinachem Century Tower. From this location, a growing sales team is serving customers in power transmission/distribution, analytical and other industries throughout Asia.
According to Joseph Mok, Managing Director for Bal Seal Asia Ltd., the company established the Hong Kong location because it considered a physical presence “essential” to its successful expansion of sales in the region.
“We know that there are tremendous opportunities for us here in Asia,” said Mok, citing high-current energy and analytical equipment as two examples. “But we also know that in order to exceed service expectations and fully realize our growth objectives, we need to understand and respect the complexities and nuances of the marketplace. Being here is a very important part of that process.”
Born and raised in Hong Kong and educated in the U.S. and Canada, Mok played a key role in establishing the Bal Seal Asia, Ltd. subsidiary. As Managing Director, he serves as an international liaison, leading a team of sales engineers and introducing the company’s canted-coil™ spring, sealing and connecting technology to a new base of customers in China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Southeast Asian countries.
Bal Seal Engineering, Inc., parent company of Bal Seal Asia Ltd., has provided sealing, connecting and energizing solutions to industries worldwide for over 50 years. The company was founded in 1958 by Peter Balsells, an engineer and entrepreneur who developed a simple, effective sealing technology for a critical aerospace application. Since then, the company has grown to more than 435 employees, with locations in the U.S., Europe and Asia.
