Newtec has marked ten years in Asia by joining the Asia-Pacific Satellite Communications Council (APSCC) as a member. APSCC is a non-profit international organization representing all sectors of satellite and space related industries, including private companies, government ministries and agencies, and academic and research entities. Its overall objective is to promote communications and broadcasting via satellite as well as outer space activities in the Asia-Pacific, for the socio-economic and cultural development of the region.

Yutaka Nagai, President of APSCC, said, “APSCC is delighted to welcome Newtec into the organisation. Newtec is a progressive, exciting, innovative company and technology leader in the satellite industry. We look forward to their contribution to APSCC activities.”

After a decade of activity in the Asian region, Newtec is now ready to become more firmly established in the region. The company has recently augmented and re-organised its team in Asia and has offices in Singapore and Beijing in order to direct more focus towards its products and solutions in the region. Joining the APSCC is the next logical step for further progression in the region.

Serge Van Herck, CEO of Newtec, commented, “This was the right time for Newtec to join APSCC. We have built a firm foundation in the Far East and we now want to build upon this to strengthen our presence in the region. Newtec’s involvement with APSCC will enable us to build new relationships and gain further knowledge of the satellite and space industry in the region. We are proud to be members of such an organisation.”
