Founded in 1912, United Engineers Limited (“UEL” or the “Company”, and together with its group of subsidiaries, the “Group”) is one of Singapore’s pioneer companies that played an integral role in the country’s physical and economic transformation. Building on its early engineering roots, the Group evolved into a dynamic corporation with key business activities in Property Rental and Hospitality, Property Development, Engineering and Distribution, as well as Manufacturing today.
The Group has developed numerous iconic buildings that define the Singapore landscape, including orchardgateway, UE BizHub CITY (formerly known as UE Square), UE BizHub EAST, as well as the mixed-use development at one-north comprising The Rochester, Rochester Mall and Park Avenue Rochester. It also owns a stable of shopping malls which comprises Rochester Mall, The Seletar Mall and UE Square Shopping Mall, as well as manages the Park Avenue chain of hotels, serviced apartments, serviced offices and convention centre.
The Group was honoured as the 11th oldest company by Singapore International Chamber of Commerce and its flagship building, UE BizHub CITY, was marked a historic site in 2002 by Singapore National Heritage Board. In recognition of its contribution to Singapore’s development over the decades, the Group was awarded the Singapore Golden Jubilee Business Award organised by Singapore Business Federation, Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority and DP Information Group.
