Singapore, Sep 26, 2003

SembWaste Cleantech, a wholly-owned subsidiary of SembCorp Environmental Management (SembEnviro) has landed cleaning contracts valued at S$24.8 million over the next three years.

From October 1, 2003, SembWaste Cleantech will take over the conservancy cleaning of the entire Pasir Ris and Toa Payoh regions. With these two additions, SembWaste Cleantech has garnered a 21 per cent market share of the Town Council conservancy market.

In addition, SembWaste Cleantech managed to renew and secure several new commercial cleaning contracts in well-established commercial buildings and sites like Prima Limited, Goldbell Tower, Lau Pa Sat, Boon Tat Street Satay Club and the Singapore Turf Club.

SembWaste Cleantech has also bagged contracts to keep the parks clean and green in the Hong Kah Town Council Zones N7, N8 and N9 along with Orchid Country Club. The car parks at Kampong Ubi and Rivervale Plaza will also come under the management of the SembWaste CleanTech team.

SembEnviro President and CEO Loh Wai Kiew said: “The award of these contracts demonstrate that we have successfully re-engineered the operations of SembWaste Cleantech. We have upgraded the skills of our people, invested in more advanced technology and geared our operations towards performance-based output. SembWaste Cleantech has clearly become more efficient and professional, and I believe we will continue to gain customers and market share with these efforts. ”

“These contracts are a reflection of our customers’ confidence in our ability to provide innovative and professional services to meet our customers’ everyday needs”, added Chew Bong Koon, General Manager of SembWaste Cleantech.

These contracts are not expected to have any material effect on the net tangible assets per share and earnings per share of SembCorp Industries for the current financial year.
