Paul Koek

Managing Director,
DIC Asia Pacific Pte Ltd

The Asia-Pacific region is one of the fastest-growing regions in the world, with a diverse range of economies, cultures, and languages.

DIC Asia Pacific Pte Ltd was established through a representative office in Singapore in 1965, followed by the creation of a local subsidiary in 1967. This marked the beginning of the company’s journey to expand its business. In a bold and strategic move, the group acquired Coates Brothers worldwide in 1999, which marked a pivotal moment in the company’s history and set the stage for an exciting new era in Singapore. This acquisition was a testament to the company’s ambition and commitment to expanding its global presence, and it further solidified its position as a major player in the industry.

Today, DIC Asia Pacific has achieved strong financial success, which is evident in its impressive turnover and equity. The establishment of the regional office has enabled the company to effectively oversee operations across 22 operating entities in 12 countries, demonstrating its strong and widespread presence in the region.
