SOS Group are a manufacturer and service provider with a proven track record of introducing, developing and supplying the latest technologies to a global audience. Our newly established Asia Pacific Office is dedicated to continuing the growth of our organisation in this region by introducing the latest technologies to improve survival rates of personnel operating in the world's most challenging environments.
Our origins can be traced back to 1950's when SOS Diving Equipment Limited was established to supply the UK market with depth gauges. In 1986, SOS began research to develop the use of flexible structures to create hyperbaric chambers. The first flexible hyperbaric chamber was launched in 1987 and over the next few years as the organisation sought to secure its position as an industry leading hyperbaric system manufacturer.
As the Core manufacturing business grew, so too did the number of solutions that we provide. SOS began producing in-house training courses and supplying tailored medical and survival solutions for our predominantly military and offshore commercial customer base.
The establishment of the Asia Pacific Office in 2016, demonstrates our rapid growth in supply of survival solutions to the region. As of November 2016, all services to our customer base will be managed from our Singapore offices. For a full breakdown of our services, please go to our Services section.
Our Experiences - Your Benefit
As an Original Equipment Manufacture as well as a in-country service providor, we understand the challenges organisations face when operating in unfamiliar territories. Entering into new markets can be costly and often unproductive. Entrusting new representatives based on limited information can be high risk, particularly so where language barriers exist. Even after initial successes, many organisations experience stagnating sales figures due to a lack of ongoing marketing and after sales support. Without the right knowledge, understanding, experience and network, the once attractive proposition of entering into the rapidly growing markets of Asia can become an expensive failure.
With over 25 years experience operating in the region, we have developed a focused approach to support carefully selected organisations to overcome market challenges for successful program delivery and operational effectiveness.
