LONDON.- Leading art business Christie’s International announced that Christie’s Fine Art Storage Services (CFASS), provider of customized storage solutions for fine art, antiques and collectibles, will open a new ultra-high security facility at The Singapore FreePort in January 2010.

Its shareholders include the Singapore National Arts Council and the National Heritage Board of Singapore.

In addition to fully customized storage solutions, CFASS Singapore will offer enhanced services designed to accommodate the growing needs of a diverse clientele, whether they need to store a single object or an entire storage room to hold a substantial collection.

Mr Andy Foster, Chief Operating Officer of Christie’ s International and President of Asia, said, “The opening of CFASS Singapore and our agreement with The Singapore FreePort Pte Ltd underscore Christie’s long-term commitment not only to Singapore, but to our business in Asia. This facility stands as the most advanced of its type in the world, and the services that it provides clients not only in Asia but around world make it the perfect partner for international fine art collectors, dealers, institutions and others looking for a safe, stable and secure location to store and trade valuable collections. And by providing for additional sophisticated services in the future, CFASS Singapore will meet the complex needs of its global clientele. ”
