Torqeedo Bangkok Office Tower

Torqeedo’s new office is in the Athenee Tower in Bangkok.

Electric and hybrid propulsion system manufacturer Torqeedo has opened an office in Bangkok, Thailand, to serve Asia and the Pacific region.

The company said an expanding focus on marine preservation, sustainable tourism, ecofishing and the electrification of commercial vessels has created a strong interest in Torqeedo products in the region.

An interest in sustainable public transportation initiatives also continues to drive Torqeedo’s expansion into commercial markets.

“Torqeedo’s focused sales and service team will ensure that these projects bring all the benefits of going electric, including lower cost of ownership and reduced environmental impact, to our APAC customers,” Christoph Ballin, CEO of Torqeedo, said in a statement.

The company’s Asia-Pacific staff is led by managing director David Hunter.
