Developing Infrastructure and Relationships in Singapore
A decade after Singapore declared independence from Malaysia in 1965, Meidensha Corporation established itself in the city-state to actively contribute to the development of the young nation.
The company brought its expertise and know-how as an electrical equipment manufacturer to power distribution and water treatment projects across the country. Initial close relations with government agencies such as the Economic Development Board (EDB), Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), National Water Agency (PUB) and Land Transport Authority (LTA) continue to this day.
“As a government oriented economy, we have developed our relationship with Singapore for many years,” says Mamoru Sugii, Director and Senior Managing Executive Officer of Meidensha Corporation and Managing Director and Regional Executive for ASEAN and South and West Asia of Meiden Singapore Pte Ltd. “In line with Singapore’s population growth, infrastructure projects in the northern area of Singapore such as railway power-supply systems are being rolled out. By strengthening our activities in Singapore, we aim to be an active player in key infrastructure projects”.

As the Asian region continues to develop and become more integrated, Meidensha is working on several infrastructure projects across the region.
“We cover nine markets from our regional headquarters in Singapore and these represent a significant portion of our overseas business,” says Sugii. “We would like to congratulate Singapore on its golden jubilee anniversary this year as we celebrate our fortieth anniversary in Singapore.We remain committed to development projects in Singapore and across the region and will continue to transfer our expertise in social infrastructure systems.”
