Mr. Sang Yi, Group President for Asia Pacific of Zimmer Biomet, who was also present at the event said in his speech, “It’s an exciting time for Zimmer Biomet in the Asia Pacific region, and Malaysia is at the forefront playing an important role.

Sang added that Malaysia’s established GBS market of over 20 years, a robust multilingual and digitally savvy talent pool, and its ability to maintain business continuity during the pandemic solidified the decision to locate the Zimmer Biomet GBS Center in the country. Malaysia is expected to grow its GBS market size from US$4.95 billion in 2020 to US$6.7 billion by the end of 2025. The GBS industry plays a vital role in the Malaysian digital ecosystem that is mature and innovative, with over 600 active GBS companies currently operating in Malaysia. Moreover, GBS is a priority area in the 12th Malaysia Plan with new opportunities arising from the progressive Digital Economy Blueprint (MyDIGITAL), demonstrating that Malaysia is a strategic location of choice for Zimmer Biomet.
The new GBS Center in Malaysia is Zimmer Biomet’s third, after Warsaw in Poland launched in 2021 serving the EMEA region and Bogota in Colombia launched in 2022 serving the Americas region.
