A historic occassion for IKA
IKA®-Werke GmbH & Co. KG, a more than 100 years established company renown for design and manufacturing of laboratory, analytical and industrial process equipment, and headquartered in Staufen, Germany, set-up its first fully owned subsidiary in USA in 1985 as it embarks on growth and expansion beyond the European market.
Following the success and a decade of growth of IKA® USA, IKA® Werke Germany set-up its first Asian subsidiary, IKA® Works Asia, in Malaysia, in 1995, to serve the then growing Asian market. The IKA® group continues to experience rapid growth, and to meet this growth, subsidiaries were then set-up in Guangzhou as IKA® Works Guangzhou in 1998 (dedicated to serve the entire China market), in Japan as IKA® Works Japan (dedicated to serve the Japanese market) and in India as IKA® India in 2008 (dedicated to serve the Indian market).
IKA® Works Asia is now poised for the most exciting event in its history – the company has moved to its new facility in the Rawang Integrated Industrial Park approximately 20 km from the capital city of Kuala Lumpur. The new facility encompasses sales, marketing, administration, a comprehensive manufacturing unit, an R&D centre, service & technical support and warehousing. This unique facility, particularly through its state of the art R&D centre, enhances and complements the other original IKA® subsidiaries in enabling new business channels, providing expertise and know-how for the entire IKA® product range to our customers.
