Toshiba Selected by Singapore Post to Supply Automated Mail System
TOKYO & SINGAPORE -- April 30, 2013
Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO:6502) and Toshiba Asia Pacific Ltd., a wholly owned
subsidiary of Toshiba Corporation today announced that Toshiba Asia Pacific
Ltd., has been awarded a contract to supply Singapore Post with a completely
integrated postal automation system that can sort and cancel letters and
packets and recognize addresses and barcodes on mail. Installation of the
equipment in the system will start in March 2014 and the companies plan to
complete the replacement process by the end of October, 2014.
Toshiba is an industry leader in the development of automated postal systems,
a status underlined by Singapore Post's award of an about 3.6 billion yen
contract for a completely integrated system, following a tender exercise. The
system will be installed in Singapore Post's central sorting office, the heart
of the country's mail system. This most recent award follows Toshiba's success
in winning a contract from Post Serbia in January this year.
"We are delighted that Singapore Post will adopt our equipment and system,"
said Mr. Takehiko Miyashita, Vice President of Toshiba's Social Infrastructure
Systems Company. "At Toshiba, we draw on over 40 years of experience in
supplying letter handling machines, and our systems support high speed
processing and high accuracy address reading rates. We offer solutions that
are cost-effective and ergonomically designed. They deliver low noise levels,
low power consumption and low life-cycle costs."
In advanced economies, postal services are differentiating themselves from
courier services by installing high performance systems that reduce delivery
times and costs. In growing economies, there is increasing demand for upgraded
system and total solutions, from equipment supply through to operation. Going
forward Toshiba aims to achieve sales of 20 billion yen in fiscal year of 2015
by providing systems that meet the needs of clients around the world.
