The Simtrum team

Foundations and First Principles 

At its heart, SIMTRUM is an e-commerce platform for photonics. To set ourselves apart, we focused  on solutions that fulfilled two main criteria: cost effective, innovative products OR industry leading products that was not available yet in Singapore. We made a deliberate decision to build the SIMTRUM team with a strong technical grounding in Physics, Optics and Engineering. SIMTRUM’s first two hires were Applied Physics graduates from Nanyang Technological University and National University of Singapore. 2 years on, we now have a multi-disciplinary team from Bachelors to Professors and industrial verterans with over a decade of experience.

“Collaborating and Working with some of the most innovative and intelligent people developing equipment for ultrafast optics, quantum communications and more, we needed a team that could represent Singapore on the international stage. Singapore, being a research and manufacturing hub in South East Asia, would greatly benefit because of  all the innovative and cost-effective technologies can be made available, unlocking new potential.”
