At the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, there were no playbooks for many businesses on how to cope with the rapidly evolving crisis. For ST Engineering, we turned to what we do best: using technology and innovation to solve real-world problems, and leveraging our expertise to support customers and partners through difficult times.
We galvanised our workforce and brought together our best minds and capabilities to support local ecosystems with proven technologies and systems and new solutions. Learn more about our role in the COVID-19 fight.
Mitigating the risk exposure of personnel in infectious areas such as quarantine facilities was a priority during the spike of COVID-19 cases in Singapore.

We also donated more than of 4,000 bottles of hand sanitisers to the Community Chest, students of Assumption Pathway School and taxi drivers from Comfort DelGro.
To help bridge the digital divide, we aim to raise $1 million for the IMDA Digital Access Programme in Singapore. Through Community Chest, the programme will provide about 5,000 beneficiaries from low-income households with access to digital devices and broadband for daily tasks, telecommuting or home-based learning. The Group will match employee donations dollar-for-dollar, up to $500,000.
