Strainstall growth success in SE Asia

When Jasper Lee joined Strainstall in 2012 as general manager of the south-east Asia branch, Strainstall SEA, he set out to re-focus the organisation on a vibrant ‘can-do’ mind-set – a strategy that is helping deliver impressive results.

“Our team based here in Malaysia is incredibly motivated and dedicated. We all look to encourage and help each other, and certainly work well together, with a core base including a strong technical manager, operations manager, and supporting team.”

Explains Jasper.

The success of Strainstall SEA under Jasper’s stewardship was highlighted by the recent financial figures showing that sales in 2013 were £1.45 million; an almost three-fold increase over the previous year. Pile testing is the predominant service area for the Strainstall SEA branch, for which it is the leading provider in Malaysia. In addition to this it has recently become a more major player in the structural monitoring market, mirroring the success of Strainstall in Europe, and the SEA branch now aims to grow into new countries.

Prior to joining Strainstall, Jasper was responsible for sales and marketing for a USbased construction company. It is clear that an outgoing personality has been a backbone to his success, and that his proactive approach to business has been a key driving force to the recent growth of Strainstall SEA.

Jasper continues:

“Since I joined the company, I’ve been trying to get to know as many people as possible. Coming here, I wanted to change the system – to go to meet every single customer to find out exactly what it is they want, and to enable us to offer the best and most manageable solution. I enjoy getting to know as many people as possible, and making our name known. The strength and wide reach of the James Fisher and Strainstall group gives us support in tendering for contracts, and enables us to work with an effective blend of local culture mixed with the global reach of the company.”


Looking ahead, Jasper expects 2014 to be even stronger than last year, despite an increase in the competition.

“I look forward to the further challenges that lie ahead that accompany the increased expectations for growth. As a team, we hope to become further involved in the structural monitoring market and look forward to a prosperous year ahead.”
