INTERVIEW is to build a strong customer relationship by providing excellent “inperson” support and solutions for our customers. SI ASIA: How has Asia performed for Leyard in the past two years? Leyard is well-established in Beijing and Honk Kong and we are currently experiencing the most momentum in India. India is supporting large conglomerates like Tata Group and Reliance Group. And the customers also include global investment banks like Goldman Sachs. SI ASIA: What would Leyard like to achieve for Asia by end of 2020? Focusing on producing ever finer LED pixel pitch products is a goal for the company. Resolution remains an ever-advancing technology as well. There is talk about 8K for the Olympics next year in Tokyo, Japan. If 8K resolution is required in smaller rooms then you need smaller pixel pitches to provide 8K displays that will be feasible for the space. Technology always has limitations, but we will try to innovate and meet the requirements of our customers and deliver better, more reliable fine pixel pitch products that can handle the demands of the market. SI ASIA: Can you share with us possible challenges and opportunities that Leyard foresees for Asia? The US-China trade war is affecting confidence in terms of corporate capital expenditure, manufacturing production and growth globally. Every business is facing direct and indirect impact because of it. Some companies may prepare for the next economic downturn due to different forecast and analysis. However, we are forecasting some strong years ahead in our region. Our team is always working hard and has built a solid customer relationship by providing the best solutions in different economic situation. SI ASIA: What are some of the recent solutions that Leyard has introduced and is excited about? Why are you excited about the solutions?
