The partnership will be majority owned by AMCA International, with minority interest held by AFMA, which previously operated a licensed AMCA independent laboratory in Singapore and acted as AMCA’s agent serving Southeast Asia. Goh Swee Lee, principal owner of AFMA, was named executive director of the new company called Asia AMCA. Goh will report to a local board of directors, which will include two directors appointed by AFMA, and three directors appointed by AMCA chosen from among its Asian regional membership.
Tan Tin Tin, who is Goh’s partner in AFMA, will become Asia AMCA’s technical director, supported by Mark Stevens, AMCA’s deputy executive and technical director in Arlington Heights, Ill.
At present, AMCA has 87 members in Asia, and adds more than one new Asian member each month.
