Trelleborg’s engineered products operation in Singapore, part of the Trelleborg Offshore & Construction Business Area, was visited by a large group of secondary school students from Yuan Ching Secondary School on the 23rd of March, as part of an outreach program organized for students interested in mechanical engineering. The visit was put together through a cooperation between the management of Trelleborg Singapore and Nantah Capital.
Arriving at 9:30 in the morning, the students were first given a product and company introduction, followed by a safety briefing before taken in three separate groups for a facility tour. On this, they were shown the different stages in the production process including the steel fabrication department and testing area. Here they saw the attention to detail and hard work our manufacturing staff put into ensuring our products’ high quality.
The tour then ended in a break at the canteen, where students were provided refreshments and could ask Trelleborg Singapore staff questions on our products and facility. After this Q&A session, the teachers and students warmly thanked us for their time and effort before leaving the facility.
This successful visit was not only enjoyable for the students, but also informative; they learned more about the oil and gas industry and Trelleborg’s role in the B2B market. In addition, after being shown in the product presentation how mechanical engineering plays a role in creating some of our solutions, especially using FEA modelling, they could see first-hand how these designs are then fulfilled in on the factory floor.
