SPIRIANT Expands Competencies in Asia-Pacific

March 2, 2016

Neu-Isenburg, Germany/Hong KongSPIRIANT, LSG Group’s equipment design and procurement subsidiary, opened a new office in Hong Kong yesterday in order to establish a dedicated competence center serving the onboard equipment needs of SPIRIANT’s customers worldwide.

The SPIRIANT Asia-Pacific team will focus on two major areas: First, they will focus on sourcing onboard equipment, ranging from technical items (e.g. drawers, glass racks) to comfort items (e.g. textiles, blankets), from the highly diverse supplier base in the region. Second, the team will function as SPIRIANT’s worldwide competence center for amenity kits, including branded and non-branded amenity bags and the items contained within them. This set up was chosen in order to strengthen and enhance SPIRIANT’s portfolio and meet the demand for tailor-made and smart solutions in these product segments.

“This move ensures that our customers benefit from a one-stop-shop solution provider, assisting them through the entire process of creative and innovative designs to high quality procurement and logistic services,” said Alexander Spahn, Managing Director SPIRIANT.

The newly built office houses over 40 employees under one roof with expertise in the fields of design, sales, procurement and logistics working to support SPIRIANT’s overall growth strategy while bringing about efficiency and speed in its daily business.

Since the official launch of the SPIRIANT brand in 2013, which symbolized LSG Group’s commitment to further invest into the equipment segment, the company has been successfully pursuing a global expansion strategy. Highly skilled and dedicated expert teams have so far been installed in Dubai, Istanbul, Sao Paulo and Hong Kong in addition to the company’s long-established home base near Frankfurt, Germany.
