We are delighted to add ESCO as a Space Connect partner. This agreement is significant for SmartSpace as it is our first major contract signing in the Far East and gives us a strategic partner in the region, a market with significant opportunities as it emerges from the Covid crisis. As well as working with ESCO as a partner to service clients in Singapore, this relationship also gives us a launchpad to access customers across significant markets in the region.
ESCO has an extensive customer base and a highly skilled team. We are already working on our first joint customer, an international pharmaceutical business, operating out of Singapore and hope to close this deal in the near future.”
