WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Interlink Electronics, Inc. (OTC: LINK), a global technology leader and trusted advisor in Human Machine Interface (HMI) solutions, today announced its commitment to continue to expand its global R&D footprint in Singapore.
As part of the Company’s pledge to continue its growth in technology and product offerings, Interlink will add additional, talented R&D engineers to their Singapore footprint, spearheaded by CTO, Dr. Albert Lu. Prior to joining Interlink in 2014, for over 15 years Dr. Lu had made significant R&D contributions to the Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech), which develops high-value manufacturing technology and human capital to enhance the competitiveness of Singapore's manufacturing industry.
Interlink has also recently eliminated the European positions of VP of Product Development and Global VP of Sales, and we plan to replace these roles through new hires in Singapore. These changes support the Company’s long-term growth strategy of expanding its Singapore-hub.
“Interlink’s continued global expansion is a testament to Singapore’s talented engineering workforce and conducive business environment,” said Mr. Steven N. Bronson, CEO of Interlink Electronics. “We are committed to using local knowledge, in collaboration with our international teams, to increase R&D collaboration and efficiency in our continuing efforts to grow our innovative and intelligent solutions,” continued Mr. Bronson.
