Welcome to Bayer Singapore!
An impressive modern metropolis of high-rise buildings and a garden city with greenery – the sovereign city-state of Singapore is as diverse as Bayer.
With its central location in the region, it is the ideal place for Bayer’s South East Asia office incorporating our Asia Pacific headquarters for the divisions; Pharmaceuticals, Crop Science and Consumer Health. The ASEAN Country Group Platform is also based here.
Singapore is not only known for global business in commerce and finance – but also as a transport hub with reliable infrastructure. This makes the city-state the ideal location for Bayer. Focusing on the mission “Science for a better life”, the Asia Pacific headquarters has a site dedicated to agriculture with experts in the Seeds Lab forming the regional hub for Asia Pacific in the Bayer global network of breeding Research and Development (R&D) centers.
The Seeds Lab is one of the nine innovation centers of Crop Science.The scientists’ tasks include screening for innovative agronomic as well as quality traits and integrating them into crops. The scientists and technicians in the Seeds Lab are particularly proud of their contributions when it comes to hybrid rice varieties that are resistant to Bacterial Leaf Blight (BLB) for use in India, for instance. The molecular screening and analytical capabilities of the lab are critical in ensuring that the entire Arize portfolio will eventually offer resistance to this rice disease. This will ensure that farmers in these countries can thrive from their yields.
The main site of the Asia Pacific headquarters is located at PLQ3, Paya Lebar Quarter, Tanjong Katong Road. Three hundred and forty employees across the three Business Units namely Pharmaceuticals, Crop Science and Consumer Health as well as Country Platform work here – 34% at Pharmaceuticals, 24% at Crop Science, 6% at Consumer Health and 36% at the Country Platform.
