SPM Singapore invests in future of South East Asian oil industry

Special Piping Materials Singapore has demonstrated its commitment to the South East Asian region by appointing a new General Manager and hiring three new team members.


The office, a division of the global Special Piping Materials company, has appointed Steve Chee as General Manager and hired three new team members to the sales team.


Steve, previously Sales Manager, has significant experience in the industry and has been with the Group since 2013. He has extensive knowledge of the projects in the region and is an expert in knowing what his clients need from their piping supplier.


The company is not only investing in the future of the business and the wider Asian oil and gas market, but also currently holds more than $5 million USD worth of high-quality stock so that it can efficiently serve its clients. The majority of this stock is pipes, fittings and flanges in high quality duplex, super duplex and nickel alloy.


Special Piping Materials supplies clients across the Asian region, namely those in the oil & Gas, Desalination and Petrochemical industries.


The senior management who support Steve in the Singapore office are all well-established players in the marketplace, with the majority having been with the company since its inception in 2005. In the past six months, three new team members have joined – Michael Lim (Sales Coordinator), Ella Huang (Sales Coordinator) and Juliana Tan (Sales Manager). All bring enthusiasm to their roles and are working hard to get to know their clients and anticipate their needs.


Commenting on the Singapore office, General Manager Steve Chee said: “The past few years proved to be a challenging period, but I believe that we have emerged from it stronger than before. This is due to our decision to focus on consolidating processes within the office and efficiencies in our supply chain.

“Now that the market is growing again, we are feeling extremely positive about the future and our share of the market in the region. I feel like we cannot be rivalled on our customer service and our knowledge of specialist pipe in Asia. We are unwavering in our business development and diversification strategy and I foresee significant growth in the coming years.”

Supporting the team in the Singapore office is a network of professional and dedicated agents across the South East area. These agents cover many different countries and markets including ship building, sub-sea projects, offshore and desalination. This system allows the Singapore team to gather on-the-ground information about regional projects and to react quickly to new opportunities, testing requirements and specifications.

The office currently holds the world-recognised ISO 9001:2015 accreditation, demonstrating its commitment to quality products and services. It is also working hard towards the new ISO 45001 health and safety accreditation which the Head Office in the UK has recently been audited for.
