Samsung C&T was founded in 1938 and is the parent company of the Samsung Group. In 1975, Samsung C&T was designated as the first general trading company in Korea to lead overseas sales operations. In December 1995, Samsung C&T incorporated Samsung Construction, which led to the company being divided into the Trading & Investment Group (T&I Group) and Engineering & Construction Group (E&C Group) with global businesses carried out in offices across 50 countries.
As a master builder, Samsung C&T Corporation is changing the skyline around the globe by building the world’s tallest skyscrapers and state-of-the-art mega-scale infrastructure projects. The successful completion of the Burj Khalifa (the tallest building in the world), Petronas Tower, Taipei 101 and Incheon Grand Bridge are testaments of Samsung achievements as a world-class leading engineering procurement and construction company.
Singapore is Samsung C&T’s regional headquarters for Southeast Asia. The company employs approximately 1,200 staff who are working on 16 ongoing projects worth close to SGD 6 billion in total. Samsung C&T is currently constructing the Tanjong Pagar Centre, a 290m-high mixed-used development that when completed will be Singapore’s tallest skyscraper. In the infrastructure arena, Samsung C&T successfully handed over Singapore’s Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Terminal which is the first LNG terminal in Asia capable of importing and re-exporting LNG from multiple suppliers.
As a responsible corporate citizen, Samsung started the Village of Hope Project in Cheon-an - an initiative to construct 112 homes from 2004 to 2012 - in collaboration with Habitat for Humanity. Samsung invested SGD 3.3 million into the project while more than 3,900 employees contributed their time and effort.
In Meulaboh, Samsung built 20 wells through the Water for Life programme which saw the rate of households with drinking water facilities and the rate of sanitary training attendance surpass 90%, while 3,000 local citizens gained access to clean drinking water. In Bogor, Samsung provided nutritious food to 500 children under the age of five and achieved goals such as a 30% rise in children health condition and a 50% drop in the malnutrition rate.
