On 1st April 2013, Agr officially opened Agr Bangkok, Ltd, a new sales and service office located in Bangkok, Thailand.

This centrally located office will provide expanded services for Agr products over the Asian region.

Over the last few years, Southern Asia has been one of the fastest growing packaging markets. This has been evident with significant growth in Agr’s customer base within this area. To better support this growing customer base, the company made the decision to establish a local sales and service operation, which is central to this market and could respond to customer needs.

Agr’s commitment to this region is evident in the appointment of Mr Martin Küstner, a 14-year veteran of the Agr organisation, to head Agr Bangkok, Ltd. In his previous position, Mr Küstner was Regional Director of Agr’s Central and Northern European sales and service territory, headquartered in Munich, Germany.

Along with Mr Küstner, Agr Bangkok Ltd. will sport an experienced technical sales team as well as several Agr factory trained service technicians. The company’s previously established Chinese sales and service team will also work under the supervision of the new Bangkok office.
