ST Engineering, the Singapore-based defence and engineering group delivering solutions in the aerospace, electronics, land systems and marine sectors, celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.


Formed as a result of amalgamation in 1997, ST Engineering's roots can be traced back to the formation on 27 January 1967 of Chartered Industries of Singapore to manufacture 5.56mm ball rounds for the M16 rifle.


“50th anniversary is a major milestone,"  says Mr Kwa Chong Seng, chairman of ST Engineering. "It is truly remarkable how far ST Engineering has come when you consider our humble beginnings.  We have much to be proud of.


"Over these five decades, ST Engineering has stayed true to its role, making significant contributions to the security of Singapore together with the defence technology community. In the same vein, the Group has also grown in geography and reputation in defence, government and commercial sectors globally."


ST Engineering is marking the anniversary with an exhibition at the Group’s headquarters in Ang Mo Kio, Singapore, and a commemorative held in the presence of Guest-of-Honour, Ms Ho Ching, executive director and CEO of Temasek Holdings.
