Rotary Engineering celebrates its Golden Jubilee in the Energy & Chemicals Industry, and attributes to People and Development as instrumental for Growth
Homegrown leading Engineering, Procurement, Construction (EPC) and maintenance service provider, ROTARY ENGINEERING PTE LTD, celebrated its golden jubilee in the chemicals and energy industry on 22 July 2022 at Marina Bay Sands, Roselle Simpor Ballroom. The 50th Anniversary Gala dinner was graced by Guest of Honour, Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam, Senior Minister & Coordinating Minister for Social Policies, and attended by more clients, government organisations, foreign dignitaries, and business partners, in addition to employees and associates of ROTARY.
Founded in 1972, ROTARY has established a significant presence in Southeast Asia and Middle East and has grown internationally in a highly dynamic and competitive landscape by tapping on its most valuable asset – People. Mr Roger Chia Kim Piow, Chairman and Managing Director of ROTARY, said that “we are a service company and it is our people who brought us to where we are now. We embrace diversity and develop talent. Today we have 22 different nationalities with us working across different countries”.
Senior Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam also witnessed the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between ROTARY and the Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) to collaborate and explore joint efforts and projects in education, workplace learning and innovation for the chemicals and energy industry. One of the completed projects under this collaboration was the Rotary Management Programme (RMP) where fresh engineers undertake systemic training to become project managers. The programme is curated by the National Centre of Excellence for Workplace Learning at SIT (NACE@SIT) to support the career development of the engineers. This
programme tapped on industrial best practices and integrated it with practical case studies and multi-disciplinary project work of ROTARY. RMP is digitalised with a hybrid delivery using face-to-face session as well as online learning and webinars. This collaboration is made possible with the support of SkillsFuture Singapore, who has been instrumental in the successful partnership between SIT and ROTARY.
“It is heartening to see Rotary Engineering invest significantly in the skills development of its workforce. The company’s commitment to workplace learning is a role model for all employers, SkillsFuture Singapore is pleased to partner Rotary Engineering in this endeavour, and we look forward to working with more companies to support the upskilling of their employees.” said Mr Tan Kok Yam, Chief Executive of SkillsFuture Singapore.
“SIT is pleased to collaborate with Rotary Engineering, one of the pioneering local companies in the
EPC sector. This collaboration brings new internship opportunities for our students, as well as
establishes the Rotary Engineering Bursary to support financially disadvantaged undergraduates at
SIT. We are also privileged to support the company’s efforts in workplace learning to build a future-ready workforce. Congratulations to Rotary Engineering on its golden jubilee and we look forward to deepening our partnership in the years ahead,” said Mr Bernard Nee, Vice President (Industry & Community), Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT).
Mr William Chia, Executive Director of ROTARY, presented donations to support various initiatives that benefitted the poor and under privileged.
