The Covid-19 pandemic created unprecedented challenges for businesses in Singapore, particularly in the process industry. Flowtherm Singapore, like many others, faced barriers to meeting customers due to lockdowns, impacting sales and operations. However, the company quickly adapted by leveraging technology, utilising platforms such as Teams and Zoom to maintain vital communication with customers and generate leads.
