On the 11th July 2002, we saw the biggest group of visitors to our
facility in Tuas. They were here in our facility to be part of the
"Pumps & Systems Seminar 2002" that was jointly organized
Cooling Towers and Asiatic
Mr Yap Bau Tan, our Managing Director, Asiatic Engineering P/L, opened
the seminar with a speech re-iterating the need for us to give ourselves
the slight edge and how this can be done through learning. The first
presentation was done by Mr Hans Maue of HOMA Pumps who did a presentation
on the HOMA organization, their products and features and impressed
all present with a live connection over the Internet to the HOMA test
bay in Germany. With this capability, HOMA Pumps can be tested in
Germany and can be witnessed from anywhere in the world.
A sumptuous buffet lunch was arranged in the warehouse with participants
eating with pumps all around them. For many this is a new experience.
While having their lunch, participants were also able to move about
the mini pump exhibition that was prepared, showcasing apart from
HOMA, DP Pumps & Shinwa products were our Monoflo
Pumps and fire protection pumps.
After lunch, Mr Laurens Kruit of DP Pumps gave a presentation covering
the DP Pumps facilities in The Netherlands and the features of DP
Pumps. This was followed by an impressive presentation of the Shinwa
Cooling Towers executed by our very own Anthony Quek.
The seminar closed at around 5pm after a Q&A session. Our verdict;
the seminar was a success. With close to 70 participants, lots of
interests were generated on various aspects of the presentations.
We had a good quality turnout with people from the HDB, PWD, various
key consultants and even a group from our Indonesian customers.
The transformation of the warehouse and the Tuas new office into
an impressive seminar cum exhibition facility was very commendable
and all involved deserves a big pat on the back.
