“We are very pleased to inaugurate our new innovation center in the Philippines and provide one-to-one technical support to our business partners. By providing innovation services to our significant customer base in the country, we will create and capitalize on next level solutions for paints, inks and construction products.”

DKSH has operations in all ten of the ASEAN countries and with approximately 25,000 specialists in the region, DKSH is one of the few large players there.
