KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, June 24 (Bernama) -- Nord-Lock Southeast Asia & Taiwan, part of the Nord-Lock Group, the world's leading provider of advanced bolting and engineering solutions, announced the inauguration of its regional office in Q Sentral, located at the heart of the capital’s transportation hub, KL Sentral.

Norbert Hentschel, Head of APAC, Nord-Lock Group, shared, “Nord-Lock Group’s investment in this new regional office underscores our long-term vision for growth in Malaysia. Over the years, Malaysia has emerged as a key market for us, offering a skilled workforce, strategic location, and a conducive business environment. This relocation strengthens our presence in the region and marks the start of an exciting chapter in Nord-Lock Group’s journey to establish closer relationship with our distributors, strengthen our global presence and deliver excellence to our customers regionally.”

Robert Lejon, Deputy Head of Mission of the Embassy of Sweden to Malaysia who was at the inauguration event, agreed with Hentschel. “Through safe bolted connections, Nord-Lock Group provides a critical component that holds modern society together, and through its decision to expand and invest here it is also bringing Sweden and Malaysia closer together. This will open more doors for growth in business and cooperation between our nations, providing more job opportunities in both our countries respectively. We are excited about the opportunities this move will bring and look forward to mutual success."

We are committed to investing in Malaysia, fostering local talent, and contributing to the country’s economic development.

A Safe, Robust and Resilient Infrastructure: The Backbone to a Nation’s Economy

For more than four decades, Nord-Lock’s bolting technologies have supported a range of industries – from construction to manufacturing, transportation to oil & gas, and more – in every corner of the world towards safer, more reliable operations and applications. “At Nord-Lock Group, our mission is to safeguard human lives and customer investments. Behind some of the world’s most advanced buildings, constructions and applications, are the safe bolted connections that hold them together – critical but usually go unnoticed. In Malaysia, some of the most recognisable buildings, infrastructures and industries are secured by our solutions; the bolting components of an awe-inspiring skyscraper may seem negligible, but they are the critical elements that enable us to build connections that last,” added Kang.
