The growth of the Port of Singapore Authority (PSA), shipbuilding and shiprepair industries in Singapore in the 1950s to 1970s was a major driving force behind the growth of Cyclect, a Singapore-based engineering company. As the government invested in modernizing the ports and expanding their capacity to handle larger ships, as well as promoting the development of the shipbuilding and shiprepair industries, Cyclect saw an opportunity to align its resources and activities to ride the growth of these industries.
In the early 1960s, Cyclect started providing technical services to the PSA, such as the design, installation and maintenance of electrical systems for ports and terminals. As PSA’s port capacity grew and the shipbuilding and shiprepair industries took off, Cyclect’s business grew as well.
In the 1970s, to support its growth ambitions, Cyclect built a 120,000 sqft facility in Liu Fang Road, which housed its manufacturing, assembly, testing and training facilities. This facility was equipped with the latest technology and had the capability to handle large-scale projects.
At about the same time, Mr. Tan Ai Meng, the founder of Cyclect, renamed and rebranded the company from Cyclect & Electric to Cyclect to reflect its transition to modernity and its focus on providing electrical solutions for the marine and port industry.
The company’s ability to align its resources and activities with the growth of the marine industry in Singapore allowed it to establish a strong foothold in the industry. Cyclect’s expertise in electrical engineering and its ability to provide customized solutions for the marine and port industry made it a key player in the industry.
As a result of its focus on the marine industry, Cyclect has been able to grow its business and establish a reputation as a leading provider of electrical solutions for the marine and port industry in Singapore. The company’s ability to adapt and evolve with the changing market conditions has allowed it to stay relevant and continue to grow its business in the decades since its founding.
