SINGAPORE – Feb. 3, 2021 – Zebra Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: ZBRA), an innovator at the front line of business with solutions and partners that deliver a performance edge, today opened its expanded Asia Pacific (APAC) headquarters in Singapore. The nearly 21,000 square foot space at Frasers Tower incorporates advanced facilities including Zebra’s Research and Development (R&D) Center focusing on printer innovations, a new Global Enablement Center (GEC), and the largest Zebra Experience Center (ZEC) in APAC.
The official launch of Zebra’s expanded APAC headquarters comes as Singapore embarks on Phase 3 of its economy reopening.
