Watlow, a designer and manufacturer of complete industrial thermal systems, opened a new facility in Cebu, Philippines.

The business scope for the Cebu facility includes providing product designs, product development, product simulation, thermal solutions, customer account management, project management and after-sales service. Currently, the team is primarily responsible for supporting customers in the energy and environmental technologies business unit, but it may expand to support other business units if needed, says the company in a release.

Rob Gilmore, Watlow’s CEO, said, “Watlow is experiencing rapid growth, and facilities like Cebu are an important part of the overall picture. We are pleased to have a footprint in the region.”
