The company was given the award for making significant contributions to Singapore's socio-economic development coupled with its exceptional drive, vision and commitment to support Singapore's growth and progress.
The Group ventured into Singapore in 2005 with the Bulk Liquid Product Terminal project for Horizon Terminals Pvt Ltd at the Jurong Island, and has achieved growth and progress over the years through exceptional business practices.
Punj Lloyd said it has also developed strategic partnerships and made significant investment in Singapore. In 2006, Punj Lloyd acquired Sembawang Engineers and Constructors, further cementing its infrastructure offering with the addition of newer verticals of airports, expressways, jetties, underground tunnels, MRT and LRT.
With its focus on creating quality infrastructure, the Group has claimed to integrate safe practices as its work ethos, winning several awards including the 'bizSAFE STAR' status received from the Workplace Health and Safety Council (WSHC), Singapore.
Sembawang was also one of the companies that signed a leadership charter 'Pledge for Zero - A CEO Committee Charter'. Jointly organised by MOM and WSH Council of Singapore, this was a significant event in Singapore's construction industry, with major players coming together to help realise the vision for 'zero injury work sites'.
With a vast presence of the Punj Lloyd group in Singapore, the group has undertaken several initiatives for the support of art and culture and local communities.
The SICCI-DBS India Enterprise Award was received by Sachin Sheth, CFO - Sembawang Engineers and Constructors, on behalf of Punj Lloyd Group from the President of Singapore, Dr. Tony Tan.
