The British engine manufacturer holds a strong presence in Singapore with its campus located at Seletar. In 2012, this was further grown after it opened a manufacturing, assembly, test, training and research facility at the site. It assembles and tests Trent engines there, while also using it as a base for its Asia-Pacific customer service center.
