(Press Release)
Tuesday, February 15, 2011

February 15, 2011 -- Rolls-Royce today officially opened its new Singapore headquarters office, located at Centennial Tower. The opening was attended by Singapore’s Minister for Trade and Industry, Mr. Lim Hng Kiang, and Sir John Rose, Rolls-Royce, Chief Executive, along with senior representatives from customer and partner organisations, and UK and Singapore Government officials. The 18,000 sq ft office houses the global Marine business headquarters, and will be home to around 80 Rolls-Royce employees.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Minister Lim said: “We are pleased that Rolls-Royce has chosen Singapore for its Global Marine Headquarters. Today’s opening marks yet another significant milestone in the Rolls-Royce-Singapore partnership which spans more than 50 years. We look forward to many more years of successful partnership.”

Sir John Rose, Rolls-Royce, Chief Executive, said: “Singapore is an important centre for the Group’s operations, we have been active here for over 50 years and are committed for the long term. Opening this office today is the latest step in our continuing development and follows the investment of S$700m in new facilities which we are making at Seletar Aerospace Park.”

Rolls-Royce continues to develop its presence in Singapore and is investing significantly for future growth. Research published last year showed that by 2015 the Group’s activities in Singapore will sustain nearly 25,000 local jobs and contribute more than S$1.5 billion, approximately 0.5% of GDP – to Singapore’s economy.
