Jaguar Land Rover has opened a regional office in Singapore to support soaring sales in the Asia Pacific region.

The new office is in response to the region becoming the company’s second fastest growing market.

The announcement was made at an event hosted by the British High Commission in Singapore.

Managing director, Jaguar Land Rover Asia Pacific, David Blackhall said: “Asia Pacific is Jaguar Land Rover’s second fastest growing region, with sales growth of 38 per cent year on year in 2012.

“Extending our global presence to Singapore confirms our commitment to pursuing the tremendous potential in this region and to supporting our importer partners.”

Jaguar Land Rover opened the Singapore office this month as part of ongoing global expansion plans and is currently recruiting locally for its new team.

The regional hub will support its Asia Pacific importer partners in their sales, marketing and after-sales operations.

The Singapore office adds to Jaguar Land Rover’s existing presence in Asia Pacific, with national sales company offices in Australia, Japan and South Korea.
