East Setauket, NY (PRWEB) October 30, 2007
For more than 12 years, Penetron had been serving the market of Singapore from its base in China, meeting the challenging construction conditions with successful Penetron crystalline waterproofing solutions. With numerous projects in its portfolio and an ever burgeoning construction market, Penetron Singapore Pte Ltd was established in 2006. This provided even greater attention to the market through an efficient distribution of the Penetron range of products and continuous technical and application support to architects, engineers and contractors.
Mr. Gary Loh, who played a big role in Penetron's success there and was appointed General Manager of Penetron Singapore, commented that, "this setup further displays Penetron's dedication and long-term commitment to the Singapore market and the entire region by providing superior waterproofing products that are trusted and appreciated by architects, designers, consultants, engineers, developers and applicators the world over."
Singapore is a nation made up of 63 islands, including the Singapore mainland. Since the 1960's, Singapore has had on-going land reclamation projects with earth obtained from its own hills, the sea-bed, and neighboring countries. As a result, its land area grew from 581.5 square kilometres (224.5 sq mi) in the 1960s to 704 square kilometres (269.1 sq mi) today, and may grow by another 100 square kilometres (38.6 sq mi) by 2030. The projects sometimes involved some of the smaller islands being merged together through land reclamation in order to form larger, more functional islands, such as in the case of Jurong Island.
Development and construction on reclaimed land generally poses waterproofing challenges and this is one of the many reasons the architectural, engineering and design community has come to rely on and trust the Penetron system. Penetron has proven its performance and superior effectiveness in a variety of independent laboratory tests and through numerous successful projects. In the process, Penetron has gained the trust and confidence of many satisfied clients including Ascendas, CapitaLand, CDL, CPG Consultants, Far East, Maple Tree, and many more.
Recent Penetron projects include the Changi Airport Terminal 3, Vivo City, The Sail at Marina Bay and the latest development by Ascendas known as Foodxchange. On these projects alone, and in addition to the other products that will also have been used to surface treat various areas, more than a quarter of a million cubic yards of concrete will have been treated with Penetron Admix.
Penetron's efforts in Singapore were summed up by its CEO Robert G. Revera when he said, "Penetron will continue to listen to our markets to provide region specific solutions and will forge ahead meeting every need of the engineers, designers, architects and contractors, offering superior products, service and support."
