2018 was special for us as Halfen-Moment was celebrating 20 years of excellence in Singapore. Two decades ago, JoinTechnique was established with a small office, serving local and international clients. After acquired by CRH 6 years ago, today Halfen-Moment Singapore is a recognized leading building solution provider in the region.
Innovation is part of our story. Advising our clients, we have always applied value-adding innovative solution combined with high quality products. Our team has worked consistently this whole time to achieve our fundamental goal – becoming the Standard of excellence in the market.
Currently, Halfen-Moment in Singapore employs 35 enthusiastic and experienced employees. We are proud to be part of an active team full of creativity, professional drive, innovative ideas and determination to make them work. We are especially grateful to colleagues whose professional activity at Halfen-Moment lasts over 10 years.
We have spoken to Peter Teo, Production Supervisor and also the pioneer of Halfen-Moment Singapore, who has been with us since 20 years ago. He reflected on the company’s 20th anniversary by saying, “This has been the fastest and most interesting 20 years of my life. If you don’t like change, innovation is not for you.’ Read full interview below:
What has been the critical success factors across the last 20 years?
Great teamwork, shorter lead time than competitors on threading, flexibility for urgent orders, providing good services and building good relationships with customers are the key factors of success throughout all these years.
What was the biggest challenge we have faced in the past?
To manage the production with continuous increase in productivity and cost control in order to be competitive, continuous improvement and innovation.
What are some of the changes that you have seen over time and what do you hope to see in the future?
From the annual company dinner of only 2 employees to the current manpower we have now is a significant change. Other changes include better, faster and more reliable modified machines for threading services, expanding into construction accessories, production of corrugated ducts and implementation of 16LSR & 6S. All these events have brought huge impact to where we are now as a key player in the industry.
