SINGAPORE – Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers (Hong Kong Stock Code: 1337), today celebrated the grand opening of its new Southeast Asia Headquarters. The ceremony was officiated by Mr. Heng Swee Keat, Deputy Prime Minister of Singapore, who applauded Razer for shaping and nurturing the gaming community both locally, and around the world. The sleek new office is strategically located in one-north, Singapore’s technology and business hub, to facilitate Razer’s hypergrowth strategy in the region. “With the new Razer Southeast Asia Headquarters, we’re excited to expand our family in Singapore from 600 to 1,000 employees. Our gamer-centric ecosystem has redefined the gaming experience for more than a decade with the introduction of innovative solutions and whole new product categories, and we’re not planning on slowing down,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer’s Co-Founder and CEO. “The new regional hub represents everything that Razer stands for, from innovation, to design, to sustainability, and will not only be home to Razer’s growing staff, but to up-and-coming entrepreneurs, and even gamers looking for a place to train and learn as well.”
The Razer Southeast Asia Headquarters is the latest addition to one-north’s iconic skyline
Standing tall as one of the most distinctive architectural landmarks in one-north, Razer’s new headquarters features an iconic black façade with acid green lines streaking across the building – a tribute to the brand’s instantly recognizable aesthetic. The interior was designed to inspire creativity and innovation, while facilitating the free flow of information amongst Razer staff. Razer’s offices in the United States, Germany and Singapore are already Great Place to Work®-certified and with the new Southeast Asia Headquarters, Razer is poised to extend its propositions to be a place to do great work.
The public is also welcomed to the Razer Southeast Asia Headquarters for a chance to visit the first RazerStore in Singapore and get coffee served at the RazerCafe.
RazerStore Singapore offers fans a chance to sample and explore Razer’s full range of award-winning products to truly immerse themselves in the next generation of gaming experiences. Visitors will also be able to get a first-hand look at Razer’s latest innovations and creations.
Razer is also introducing a new F&B concept that marries technology, design and refreshments through a state-of-the-art robotic barista arm. At the RazerCafe, guests can order a beverage at the store or pre-order a cup of coffee via the RazerCafe App and collect it in-store. The AI will then make an unrivalled aromatic latte, tailored precisely to each customer’s unique tastes. In line with Razer’s #GoGreenWithRazer efforts, the RazerCafe has been designed with sustainability elements in mind.
RazerStore Singapore and RazerCafe will be open to visitors from October 28, 2021.
A Sustainable and Smart Place to Work
The new Razer Southeast Asia Headquarters embodies the company’s sustainability initiative #GoGreenWithRazer, Razer’s ten-year plan to preserve nature and protect the environment. Equipped with eco-friendly features, such as solar panels to power parts of the day-to-day operations and sensor-enabled lighting system for energy effectiveness, the building has been conferred the Green Mark GoldPLUS certification by the Building and Construction Authorities in Singapore.
Fulfilling a brand promise that was made earlier this year, Razer’s new Southeast Asia Headquarters incorporates sustainable practices such as removing all single-use plastics and utilizing BAMBOOLOO – The Nurturing Co.’s brand of sustainable paper products.
Designed For Gamers. By Gamers.
