Chartered Industries of Singapore was formed on 27 January 1967. That sparked the start of our journey and the transformation of ST Engineering into the leading defence and engineering group.
To kick off our 50th Anniversary, a commemorative event was held on 26 January 2017 at the Group’s headquarters in Ang Mo Kio, Singapore, with more than 300 guests including customers, business partners, directors and senior management team as well as the ST Engineering team of past and present. The guest of honour at the event was Ms Ho Ching, Executive Director and CEO of Temasek Holdings, who joined Chartered Industries in 1987, became the President & CEO of the Singapore Technologies Group in 1997 and concurrently guided ST Engineering as its founding Chairman from 1997 to 2003.
It was a joyous celebration filled with stories about key milestones of our journey and challenges that the Group bravely overcame; symbolic items of our past sealed in three time capsules; wishes for the future and a preview of our year-long Golden Jubilee celebrations.
For the first time, an exhibition of more than 50 of our most innovative solutions for the aerospace, electronics, land systems and marine sectors, filled the entire ground floor of our headquarters. Invited guests had the opportunity to see our world-class products and solutions and learn more about our illustrious history.
