ISISPACE Group (“ISISPACE”), a satellite integrator specialized in manufacturing, integration, launch and operations of small satellite missions, based in Delft, The Netherlands, and SATORO PTE. LTD. (“SATORO”), a start-up in small satellite missions with its headquarters based in Singapore, have agreed on a partnership through which SATORO can act as Regional Distributor for ISISPACE in the South East Asia region for its small satellite products.
SATORO, through its original offices in Taiwan, has been a customer and user of various ISISPACE core avionics satellite products over the past few years for their first missions. In addition, ISISPACE has supported SATORO with the launch of their first satellites on different missions throughout 2023. Building on that relationship, the companies recognized and agreed to explore a mutually beneficial partnership to support third party customer mission needs from the region.
Having the benefit of being in the region, SATORO can support and interact with customers from the region easier, adding the convenience of being familiar with ISISPACE’s core avionics satellite products for pre-sales and after sales support. In addition, to serve regional customers in need of higher end missions based on larger satellite platforms with heritage that prefer to work through a local supplier, SATORO and ISISPACE can jointly offer such missions, building on the 18 year long mission heritage of ISISPACE in the field of manufacturing small satellites, adding launch services and mission operations as required.
“We are very happy to be a distributor of ISISPACE for the South East Asian region”, says Maverick Shih, Chairman of SATORO, “as the cooperation between SATORO and ISISPACE allows us to bring in proven and reliable CubeSat solutions from ISISPACE combined with SATORO’s local presence and support in Asia.”
Jeroen Rotteveel, CEO and co-founder of ISISPACE, adds: “Building on our established relationship with SATORO as a recurring customer experienced in utilizing our satellite products, we are confident that designating SATORO as a Regional Distributor will serve as a convenient local point of contact and provide valuable support to our joint customers in the South East Asian region.”
As part of the role as Regional Distributor, SATORO will represent ISISPACE at various industry events in the region, starting with the Global Space and Technology Convention (GSTC) in Singapore this month.
