ARL Strengthens Asian Presence

Tuesday, June 01, 2004
Rolf G. Oetter, Founder and President of Albacore Research Ltd (ARL), and Dr. Oskar Lee announced the official launch of ARL Asia Pte Ltd (ARL Asia) as solutions provider and training and technical center for ARL’s ShipConstructor software in Asia.

ShipConstructor is the powerful AutoCAD based 3D product-modeling software for the design and fabrication of ships and offshore structures. As Director of ARL Asia, Dr. Lee will provide CAD/CAM system integration in the Asia Pacific region for all ShipConstructor clients, with the aim to co-ordinate sales and technical support. To aid this effort, ARL Asia has enhanced its website (www.shipconstructor.com.sg) to provide full product, training and exhibit information for ShipConstructor’s Asia-based clients.

“Under Dr. Lee’s guidance and knowledge of local markets, ARL is on target to expand its client base of shipyards and designers throughout Asia, where the marine and offshore industry is expected to grow tremendously, and thus also the need for easy-to-use ship design software solutions such as ShipConstructor,” said Mr. Oetter. To provide timely, localized service, ARL Asia has established a dealer network in the Asia region, which includes, to date, eHYS, Inc (Korea), CAD&Soft Co Ltd (Korea), S&I Technologies Asia Pte Ltd (Singapore), Peripheral Solutions (S) Pte Ltd (Singapore) and Aries Marine & Eng. Services (UAE).

Seoul-based eHYS, nominated by Autodesk Korea as its sole business partner in Korean marine industries, is the key Autodesk reseller for Korea (www.ehys.co.kr). Building on the company’s extensive client network and comprehensive expertise, eHYS works closely with ARL Asia to develop the market for ShipConstructor in Korea. CAD&Soft in Busan specializes in management technology consulting and software development for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) for the marine industries in Korea (www.cad.co.kr).

Existing clients include large shipyards as well as small and medium industries, demonstrating the scaling capacity and the versatility of the software.

S&I Technologies Asia (S&I), a Singapore-based database integration company, is a leading provider of world-class server systems, enterprise solutions, and service integration that help customers maximize their business value through the strategic use of information technology for the new economy. S&I has a strong presence in Malaysia, China and Thailand, as well as partners in the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China and Australia (www.si-asia.com).

Peripheral Solutions (PSL), ARL’s established dealer in Singapore, is now strategically aligned with ARL Asia. PSL has extensive experience in the supply and implementation of office and factory automation hardware and software. Both ARL Asia and PSL are registered resellers of Autodesk products with particular strength in the support of AutoCAD three dimensional design tools.

Aries Marine & Eng. Services is based in the United Arab Emirates and provides naval architecture and marine engineering services to the maritime industry (http://www.ariesmarine.co.ae).

Existing clients are mainly in the marine and oil & gas industries located in Africa, and from India to Azerbaijan. ARL Asia will also be working closely with Australia-based Formation Design Systems Pty Ltd (FDS) and its Asia representatives (www.formsys.com). Dr. Lee and ARL Asia, along with ARL and FDS, will be exhibiting ShipConstructor at Shiport China 2004 from June 22-25, at Booth # ES-11.
