At present, Siemens has 7 companies and employs more than 2,100 people, and is one of the largest European companies in Singapore. We are engaged in a wide range of activities, including engineering, design, software development, research and development, maintenance, manufacturing and marketing. In fiscal 2009 (October 1, 2008 – September 30, 2009), sales to customers amounted to S$ 1.4 billion.
Siemens is responsible for many of Singapore’s key infrastructure projects, and our innovations permeate every aspect of Singapore’s economy. On the power front, one third of Singapore’s power plants are built by Siemens. In the area of healthcare, the company provides hospitals and clinical laboratories with the latest in diagnostic technology. Siemens water technologies help address the country’s water worries. Our MRT trains provide safe and reliable transport for thousands of commuters, while our gate management system supports our airport operations. In addition, Siemens automation systems are deployed for the state-of-the-art Deep Tunnel Sewerage System, and our industrial solutions ensure that our ports and critical public infrastructure run optimally.
For our contribution to the local economy, Siemens was presented the Distinguished Partner In Progress Award by the Singapore Economic Development Board in 2001 – the highest corporate award given by the Government.
On 6 January 2004, the Siemens Center was officially opened by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. The new building consolidates most of Siemens Singapore’s operations under one roof to achieve synergies and leverage on our broad spectrum of capabilities, and to serve our customers even better.
Siemens is an active member of the community in Singapore. Over the last few years, Siemens has been a sponsor of the National Day Parade, and a steadfast supporter of the President’s Challenge. Most recently in 2009, we raised more than S$185,000 for the President’s Challenge through a series of internal activities and a charity golf tournament. In addition, Siemens has an employee volunteerism program – Siemens Caring Hands, in which every employee is given a working day off to engage in community services. For the consistent support that we lend to the local Arts scene, Siemens was conferred, for the sixth year running, with the Associate of the Arts award by the National Arts Council in 2008.
